PowerLock Chain Connector

The SRAM 10-speed PowerLock link is compatible with all models of SRAM 10-speed chains. It's not compatible with non-10-speed chains. "Why?" you might ask. It's simple: This link is 5.95mm wide, just like a SRAM 10-speed chain. If you ride a SRAM Red, Force, or Rival road bike, or a SRAM XX mountain bike, you'd be well served to keep one of these in your seatbag in case of a chain crisis.

The beauty of the 10-speed PowerLock link is that you can install it with no tools. It snaps in place with fingers-only. One critical note: SRAM states that you should break their chains at a non-PowerLock link with a chain tool, i.e. push out a standard link all the way. Then once you're ready to put the chain back together, you'll use this link.

  • For use with 10-speed chains only
  • PowerLock is not reusable, you must use a new link each time you remove the chain

Yet another Master Link

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Yeah, sure ... the proper way to repair a SRAM chain is with a new pin, but sometimes you don't have that option. This master link will help you get back on the road if you break a chain mid-ride. Not the easiest thing to open and close without a pair of master link pliers (like the Park Master Link Pliers item # PAR004Q), it can be done ... and will help prevent that dreaded phone call to a loved one to come pick you up.

Great item to have along

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Its light weight and easy to bring on any ride. Never get stuck on the trail with a broken chain again when you bring one of these guys along! Hopefully you never have to use it but will come in great handy if you do happen to break your chain!

I've used it several times

One of those items you keep in your pack and hopefully never have to use. Good insurance just in case your chain snaps a ways from home or your ride. Easy to use and take up as much space as a chewed up piece of gum. Cheap enough to pass out good karma on the trail if needed.

Keep some in your pack!

I've put it through the wringer

Ten speed drivetrains are nice, but you'll notice that you can damage the thinner chain more easily. I keep two of these in my pack at all time (along with a spare derailleur cable, another 10spd issue). They say you can't reuse them, but if you have master-link pullers, and you are in a can.

Must have!

I've used it several times

I consider these an absolute necessity in any "worst case scenario" mountain bike tool kit. A broken chain can turn a super sweet ride into a super long walk and is one of the worst events that can befall a biker.I have broken a chain before and the PowerLock connector made the repair a snap. I also took confidence in the knowledge that I did not have to pop any pins so my chain could be counted as good as new, without any weak spots. Neither my wife or I ever go on a ride without these in our bags.

You need extras

These are one time use. If you need to remove your chain, you need a new Powerlock to put it back on. You should also carry extras to fix a broken chain.

Always Should Have!

This is one of those items that you should always have with you when riding. The one time you don't and something happens, you will never forget again. Better just always have them!


will this work with Shimano XT 10-Speed Chain?

Hey Taylor, you're going to need a Shimano 10-Speed Chain Pin (sku SHI009Q) to repair a 10sp Shimano chain. Feel free to reach me at my direct line 801.204.4547 or email at if you have any other questions! Cheers, Connor
