The riveting links are an alternative to the slip-fit connecting links, however these links are more difficult to install. It's recommended to use these when the chain is running near its max working load.
² Do not drive the plate too far. This will pinch the roller link and cause a stiff joint that can not move freely.
Never drill the holes of the link plate. This will defeat the purpose of the riveting link and will not offer any advantage over a slip-fit connecting link
