Shimano 9 Speed Chain Pin Workshop Jar Qty 50
Do you service or maintain numerous older or current bikes with 9-speed Shimano drivetrains? If so, Shimano's genuine replacement parts are optimal for proper performance. Buying regularly used small parts in bulk with Shimano's Workshop Jars makes your life easy and saves you money. When sizing, installing, or replacing a Shimano 9 speed chain you need a proper, specific chain pin for fastening the link. Shimano has largely eschewed quick-links, in the firm belief that a properly driven replacement pin is the most effective way to reconnect a chain.
Each 9 speed chain pin has a distinct silver color, brighter than any other Shimano chain pin, making them visually recognizable at a glance. This Workshop Jar of fifty 9 speed pins is compatible with every Shimano 9 speed chain. Chain pins should be driven with chain tools that are designed for compatibility. The compact Workshop jar has a hinged lid that clips into place, yet is easy to operate with one hand, with a wide enough opening for easy removal. Outfit your service bench with genuine Shimano replacement parts and ride with confidence in your equipment.
When installed properly the driven end sits in the chain nearly flush, and the guide end is then removed by folding that end off. Always work the chain by hand to ensure that the link has free movement and visually inspect to make sure both plates are properly in-line with the chain. Every time you install a pin you should be using fresh outerplates. Never drive out a replacement pin then install a new one in the same link. If you need to break the chain, move as far opposite a pin driven link as possible to create your new junction. Get it right and pedal with the ease of mind that comes with genuine Shimano equipment.
