Here is how I did it. Put the plate with the two attached pins through the two ends of the chain. On the loose flat plate side of the “missing link,” note that there is a slightly wider part of the slot that is big enough for a pin to go through. Next take the flat piece of the “missing link” and put it over one of the pins on the part of the missing link that you have used to join the chain. Then slide the flat plate all the way down the slot so that the pin you put through is on the opposite end of the slot part that is enlarged. Grasp the chain and slightly bend the “missing link” so the ends of its pins move slightly closer to each other. Move the slotted plate so the other pin goes through the enlarged portion of the slot. Finally, grab the chain and bend it back the other way so the two pins of the “missing link” are at the extreme ends of the slot.
