Make a Chain

Step 1: Seperating the Chain

Picture of Seperating the Chain

You Will Need 6 Segments-

Using a Screwdriver Wedge In Between The 2 Most Outer Layers Where Shown

Next Tap The Back End Of The Screwdriver With Hammer Seperating The Layers.

Once They Are Seperated Use the pliers To Pull The part Out Of The Socket.

Step 2: Cleaning and Ring Placement

To Remove ALL the Grease-

Cup Your Hand and Pour In Sugar

Then Pour On Dish Washing Soap

Once You've Done That Scrub The Chain In Between Your Hands For 3 Min (Or More)

The Sugar Will Rip And Scrub The Grease Out Of The Way For The Soap To Get In and Do Its job
(This Works When You Have Grease On Your Hands Or Body And Will 100% Remove All Of It)

After You Rinse Away The Soap And Sugar Get a Key Ring-

Connect the Chain Together By looping The Ring Thru It.


You Have Just Took A Step To Helping Save Our Race.

to make life a lot easier you could just use a fantastic tool called a CHAIN BREAKER (it doesnt actually break the chain )

DIY Dave (author)2008-07-23

Is there anywhere you can buy short lengths of bike chain?

KeepTheBrain (author)DIY Dave2009-06-15

goto any bike shop and ask for it...they gave me an old one for free and its like 5 m long

dollardude (author)DIY Dave2009-05-18

TheMadScientist (author)DIY Dave2008-09-02

nice project. where did you key the chain from?

dollardude (author)2009-05-18


TheMadScientist (author)2008-09-02

in order to not damage the chain, why not use a chain tool if you've got it handy? it pushes the pin in the middle to the outermost layer, so you can remove the inside of the other link.

not many people i know bother byeing chain tool;s

dollardude (author)2009-05-18

Great idea. It would also be awesome if you could make a pant clip out of a bike chain... I'll have to try.
