in response to the skipping issue
Unlike the Sram links these do not get stuck after being on for a while. The ten speed ones are reuseable and easy on/off. However they are asymmetrical and if you are running 11t cog and you install the connector upside down the outer plate will ride up on the cassette lock ring and cause it to skip. Simply flip the plates, outer plate goes to inner etc and the skipping will stop. I don't recall it being very clear in the instructions.

Wish I had bought one sooner
So easy to take my chain off and clean it propperly now. A nice bonus during fari weather riding, a huge plus when roads a wet and dirty. No tools needed, have no problems with chain skip or shifting with it installed.

PROS: Durable, Easy To Install

another response to skipping issue
I've got to respond to the skipping issue, as well, because I made the same mistake: I put it on in the wrong orientation, and had a skip about every pedal revolution. I reversed the link, and it's fixed. Other advantages? It removes and installs by hand (similar links from two other manufacturers have needed tools), and my first one is now on its fourth chain (all from other manufacturers).

Best Link out there
Always a good idea to carry a spare, just in case. These go on and off with bare hands, unlike those Sram ones.

Works as advertised. Buy it.
Bought the 6.8mm Stainless version for a Shimano 8-speed chain on my Trek FX. Installed easily and has worked flawlessly for 14 months. I believe they recommend you replace the Connex link each time you remove the chain (i.e., don't re-use the link) but I've done so several times to clean the drivetrain, service the BB, etc. without any ill effects. Makes service on the road much simpler than using a chain tool. I carry a couple spares in case I lose another link on my chain or have to assist another rider.

Skipping gears is no fun
This masterlink looks good at first. Works as intended and install was straight forward. Everything was fine until I went to my highest gear and it started skipping at every revolution. I tuned my RD thinking it was the H, but no adjustment could not take skipping away. I changed to a different brand masterlink and the skipping is gone.

PROS: Easy to assemble

CONS: Will skip at highest gear, Pin overhang is big
