    So what's so special about this design as it's nothing new AT ALL, they have been around for decades, used one for changing oil filters on my truck way back in the late 1970's. You can still buy them at auto accessory stores ------

    Here's one that is even simpler than the one in the video, it does exactly the same job and is as "cheap as chips".

    I have an expensive Snap-On chain wrench, handle is about 18'' long, it is a nightmare to use because you cannot tighten the chain like this one. I like it!

    I have to figure out how to use it each time and a third hand would come in handy. The chain pitch is about 3/4'' and you need a certain amount of slack for it to work. Once you get it right it is very useful.
