Iíve actually had no trouble undoing SRAM and KMC links on 8 speed and SS chains by hand.

OTOH, Iíve had Odyssey Grandstand pedals on both bikes for about four years and kept tearing up the plastic end caps with needle nose pliers when pulling them to disassemble and grease the bushings. Had to keep ordering replacement caps.

Then I got the bright idea that I might one day pull apart a freewheel to re-lube it, so I got the Park freewheel pin spanner.

Lo and behold! I have yet to make the mistake of meddling with freewheel innards, but it is the perfect tool for removing the pedal end caps without damage! You know they could have put that tip on the pedal packaging. 😊

Plenty of stupid mistakes one can make!
