Chain tools collectively keep industrial roller chains
in operation. They range from detachers to pullers and others in-between. Below are some of the widely used chain tools:• Chain holders: these feature hooks on opposite ends where you insert the ends of cables. You can use chain holders to change, remove, add, or repair links. Some examples of chain holder types include the cable and jaw-style holders.• Chain breakers
: from time to time, you will need to drive out pins or tighten the chain head. Chain breakers are your best option for such activities. Common variants include roller and wrench-drive breakers.• Riveters: when equipped with roller chain riveters, you can drive out broken rivets and replace them with new ones before getting the chain back into use.• Removers: pliers and quick-twist removers are ideal for removal work.• Chain aligners: while installing roller chains, you need tools for alignment of sprockets
and the chain itself.
