Default Easy chain oiling with cheap tool

This simple clamp from Lowe's is also a spreader. It’s the perfect length for jacking up the right side trailing arm to get the tire off the ground to clean and lube the chain.

Question: Did you pull the stop pin so you could turn the handle around? Or an I missing something. All mine have a stop pin for the handle. Thanks.

Oh never mine I figured it out. Sometimes I wonder about me.

Nice idea.

I, though, am just too lazy to remove my center stand, and go find a square tree to cut down.

Harbor Freight sells similar clamps for about $5 for the most frugal of us.
