    Finish Line "Chain Pup" Kinda cool

    Picked up a bike yesterday and this was in the saddle bag.
    I don't remember them but it is very cool.
    Just wondering if anyone is familiar with it and knows if the allen key had a keeper to keep it from sliding out of the chain breaker.

    I still have one rattling around in my seat bag for emergencies.... I don't think there is/was a keeper.

    It's a total PITA to get it aligned right to use it, but if you're down on your luck on the trail it can come in handy. Especially if you combine it with some spare power links to get you back on the trail and home.

    Is it bent or is that the way it was made?

    Nice! Those are hard to find and that one is in much better shape than mine. I've had mine in my seat bag for years and have used it numerous times for trail side repairs. The hex wrenches are not long enough to provide much leverage and the spoke wrenches are not deep enough to provide good bite on the spoke nipples, but the chain tool has been a ride saver numerous times. I just carry the chain tool part and use the hex key from my multi-tool to operate he chain tool. There is no keeper to keep the key in the hole.

    They were very cool I picked a couple back a few years. Nothing to hold the Allen keys but I have used a rubber band to hold it in place.
