    Mini master link remover?

    Does anyone make a mini master link remover tool, like a mini Park MLP-1. Or better yet, does anyone make such a tool incorporated into a mini tool instead of a chain breaker tool?

    I use the "diagonal" pliers technique, too. After a little research, it looks like squeezing the link in the right way (different from what I was doing) works with no tools. I will give it a try later.

    squeezing the link works but when the chain is nasty its much harder. the diagonal method provides axial force along the pins and the release/backwards movement

    If you have a mini tool with pliers, you can convert the pliers into a master link remover, similar to what I did with some needle nose pliers, using a file and a dremel:
