    Only experience I've had is with their 8sp Sigma quick connector link. I went through about 4 of them. They didn't last nearly as long as the KMC quicklinks and the sideplate that needed to be flexed...

    Yes you can just use the proper sized allen head bolt replacement. Stainless would be best. An allen head will be much less likely to get feckered up when adjusting than the phillips but you can also...

    My guess would be that the $19.99 price is a mistake despite what the counter guy said. That is WAY over the retail price and I have never seen any Park tools marked up so high anywhere.
