Customer reviews for SRAM PowerLock Chain Connectors x4 - 10 Spd

SRAM PowerLock Chain Connectors x4 - 10 Spd

SRAM chain engineers developed the PowerLock as a tool free, sure and consistent way to connect their 10 speed chains. While the Powerlock does not require special tools for installation, the especially tight tolerances of 10-speed drive trains mandate that each PowerLock is good for a one-time application only. Supplied as a pack of 4.

Saved my bacon

PostedJune 19, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
My chain snapped 93 miles into a 100 mile sportive and someone very kindly stopped and let me have one of these. Have done several rides since then with no problems. I have since bought a pack of 4 of them and will keep one in my seat pack. Great product and dead simple to fit, but bear in mind that they can't be re-used.

Cannot be reused

PostedApril 4, 2011
No, I do not recommend this product.
Although perhaps it should have been obvious to me from the name when I purchased this connector I didn't realise that it could only be used once and that it had to be removed with a chain tool unlike their 9 speed connectors I use on another bike. If you are happy with this then I'm sure it's fine. I'm not as I like to remove my chain to clean it and the derailliers. Suggest use the KMC chain connectors which are much easier to use.

Its a chain conector...

PostedMarch 6, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Cons: Expensive
It joins your chain really easily but you need special tools to remove. Its not recomended, once you remove, put it back, but it is possible to do it....may not work. Mine was black, not silver. Powerlock is for 10 speed. Powerlink is 9 speed.
