I am sorry if you are having problems, how many times have you had this happen? If you in any way think that your chain may be faulty then please contact warranty and we will be very happy to look at it. If you have previously ordered a masterlink kit then I would have thought we could sort something out or cut you a deal on the next one.

The keychain has been in development for a very very long time, and generally speaking we have seen very very few JRA type incidents, there are no modifications or V2's in the works. (though we are looking at doing slightly longer ones for non-BMX use). 

I hope this sounds reasonable.

Honestly, I had no problems with it up until now. I don't ride pegs, and ride a full guard sprocket. It was literally out of the blue and I can't exactly pinpoint which failed, the master-link or the link next to it. ..... the threads on the master-link pin completely sheared off

Exactly the same thing happened to mine, on the half-link as well. Never ride pegs, and broke out of the blue. The thread on the master link has completely sheared off as well. This hasn't happened to the full link though which I have been running since then with no issues.

Check your chain alignment, try to get it as straight as possible.

This is what I hate about frames these days, I have to risk scraping the teeth of my sprocket on the chainstay to get proper alignment.

I hate that too.  All the frames have ridiculously short back ends now days.  So glad I picked up my Animist when I did and can run a 14 inch backend and not have to worry so much about chainline problems.

I don't see how you folks can bunnyhop with a 13.125 rear end?

better pic of both failed plate and pin thread. Question is, which went first since the were on separate links.
