This is a fairly specialized tool for opening and closing chain links. I borrowed a contractor's pair once and wanted my own thereafter. The ease of modifying chain length easily, without a hacksaw, pays for the pliers in time and effort saved after one or two uses. Home Depot on-line order and delivery was super fast (ahead of expected 4 days) and efficient at pickup. Only slight wish is that the spring and rivet were a little heavier duty. Hasn't hurt their function at all yet after five jobs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by UrbanPoet Good product - not best for my application
The product is well made and performs as described. However, the chain I was using it on had a narrow opening and the pliers were too thick to work as intended. I did manage to get them to work, but if you have a modern narrow chain fixture, this may not be for you. I reiterate that I did manage to make it work.

The finish is textured which creates pressure points and can mar the chain. A must have for electricians who install hanging fixtures. They should sell these in-store.

Can't believe this tool. Greatest thing since the invention of the wheel. This is really effective, quick and simple to use. Opens and closes the links with little effort and no obvious visible marks. Used it on dark oil rubbed bronze chain and, when I was done, it looked like it did from the factory. You might not need this tool very often but it's one of these that will always be there when you do need it and can be used for other purposes also. Make the investment - you won't regret it.

This is a great tool for opening and closing decorative lamp chains. I'm baffled that this article is not available in the store.

Worked well. Made opening/closing of lighting fixture chain links far easier than using regular pliers.

I am glad I bought these. I tried working with the chain using regular pliers and the result was not pretty. These are easy to use and don't leave any marks. My only regret is not being able to buy them in my local Home Depot

I bought this tool for a specific project, but can see its use for so many others. Great to have in the box
