The Stainless Steel Single Chain Keeper holds your chain in place on a Return or Power idler in an economical, durable and beautiful manner. This chainkeeper isn't just a piece of bent metal, like you'll find elsewhere. The tough, abrasion resistant, quiet-if-rubbed nylon keeper arm is fully supported over its entire length by a 5mm stainless bolt, making it the toughest chain keeper in the business and the easiest to fix if it's ever damaged.
This chainkeeper is made to resist the most unpleasant of whacks. And when you're on tour far from home you'll appreciate being able to quickly straighten things out and get back on the road. These chainkeepers are designed to be simple, good looking, and stout. They are laser cut from heavy gage 304 stainless steel. The actual keeper arms are made from Molybdenum Disulfide impregnated Nylon, a super tough, super abrasion resistant plastic. Molybdenum Disulfide is a black colored lubricant often used to enhance greases. In this case, it makes the Nylon slipperier. The Nylon arm is drilled through for an M5 stainless bolt with a stainless NyLock nut on it. The stainless bolt reinforces the Nylon in case things get bashed, and the Nylock nut makes sure things don't come off until you decide to take them apart.
Made from 0.078in 304 Stainless steel, laser cut, hand deburred, then additionally tumble deburred. Nylon arm is special MDS impregnated material for abrasion resistance and low drag when the chain rubs it. These chainkeepers are designed to be able to be bashed and bent back many times. These chainkeepers are designed to be clamped in place by a jam nut or by being squeezed by a spacer. Slide the keeper onto the idler bolt in the sequence needed and tighten things up most of the way. Adjust the keeper to the proper angle, then tighten things all the way. If the keeper ever gets bashed and bent, you can bend usually simply things back by hand in the field. When you're back home, you can take the Nylon arm off and straighten things more carefully if you wish.
