Many derailleur chains use a “master link” that allows the chain to be installed and removed by hand. While this type of masterlink doesn't require a traditional chain tool, over time, dirt and corrosion can make it difficult to separate by hand. The Park Tool MLP-1.2 Master Link Pliers make removal and replacement of these masterlinks quick and effortless. Simply insert the specially sized jaws into the masterlink and squeeze the handles.

These pliers can be used for both removing a master link AND connecting it. I've used it on two different 9-speed chains so far (1 KMC, 1 SRAM) and they work great.
Like all Park Tools, the construction of the pliers is sturdy and I have no doubt they will last a long time.
Every time I removed a chain, I would inevitably have a tough time removing the master link and take my frustration out on my wife. This would lead to her kicking my ass and me crying in the bathroom waiting for the cops, so I could embarrassingly tell them how my 120 pound wife whipped my ass, but conveniently leave out the part about me starting the fight. Don't judge me.
Anyways, this can happen to you, too. So, do yourself and your spouse/room mate/dog/whatever a favor and quit "getting by" without it. The next time you have to remove a chain with a master link, you will kick yourself for not getting one earlier. It might keep you from getting beat up and having to explain to the police why your nose is bleeding again.
For years I have been manipulating these links by hand and makeshift use of tools not designed for this purpose. I have slipped and pinched/pulled/scraped/broken/bled more than once. So I finally decided to get the right tool for the job. Specially since I'm upgrading to 11 speed chains which I have heard a little more difficult to work with.
Additionally, you’ll want to have a chain splitter too. I have yet to install a new chain and have it fit perfectly. I’ve always had to remove links. If don’t have a need to use a chain splitter daily, I recommend the Park Tool CT-5 Mini chain splitter. This tool cost about $15, and it’s compact, and it’s a way better tool than the chain splitter in your multi-tool. I keep the Park CT-5 in my pack on every ride.
The handles are covered in durable coating.
Price point isn't bad either when you consider how easy chain cleaning just became and that you will probably be passing them down to your grandchildren.
Park Tool quality, good function and a good price. Couldn't be happier.
