    Now does this mean that yo've got to run the chain long so if it snaps you can remove the snapped section of chain, then rejoin :biggrin: :smile: :biggrin:

    Hopefully only one link will get broken, and usually it's the outer plates that go, so they can be replaced with another quick link. I guess if the inner plates also go, you'd have to use some of the spare links you saved when shortening the chain initially, and use 2 quick links, either side of the replacement inner links.

    If you carry a spare quick link and a chain splitter you can remove the snapped link and fit the quick one in its place.
