Jumbo Chain tool and Quad Stake kit
I recently purchased a Motion Pro Jumbo Chain tool and Quad Staking kit to rivet my new Regina chain's master link (no dimples in the rivets). The Quad Staking kit has one side with a round cylindrical depression that screws into the part of the chain tool that is turned with a wrench to stake the master link on the chain. The other side has a pyramid shaped depression that I assume is supposed to give the master link rivets that "factory look". But that part goes on the inside side of the chain when the tool is in use so it doesn't affect the side of the master link that needs to be staked. There are no instructions with the Quad Stake kit at all. The only way I can see it doing what it's supposed to do would be to rivet the chain before putting it on the bike (can't do that since it runs through my swingarm), install the master link with the rivets going through from the left side of the bike, or remove the rear wheel to rivet the chain. Is there something I'm missing here?

The quad stake rivet kit requires the Jumbo Chain tool to be used "backwards" on the chain for a very simple reason. When using the quad stake riveter, it must remain stationary and not turn, otherwise it is not possible to create the quad stake shape. So, the chain tool has to be oriented with the bolt assembly to the inside, or the master link has to be assembled with the rivet side to the inside towards the wheel.
