SRAM Quick Link & DA 9 sp Chain

Is there any reason I can not (should not) use a SRAM 9 sp Quick Link with a Dura Ace 9 sp chain? Both are new parts.

Shimano has some special pin that you break off after insertion. I prefer the QL to be able to remove the chain for a thorough cleaning.

I guess technically, the SRAM part is a "PowerLink" Gold.

It should be just fine. I have 3 of them on 9 spd Ultegra or 105 group sets. I much prefer them to the special Shimano pin, and on the road they can be a life saver. A couple times we got our tandem chain jambed and could only free it up by breaking the chain. The quick link saved our bacon.

Officially, the SRAM quick links are one-use-only, but you would not be the first to ignore this recommendation. KMC makes a quick link that is supposed to be opened and closed multiple times and also works with chains from other brands.
