See http://www.bikeusa.com/MERCHANT2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=MSGI&Product_Code=TL4615 The way they work is they drop into a chain only a little when it is new, and farther when it is worn. When it drops in all the way it is time to replace the chain, and if it rattles back and forth, sorry, but you are replacing the freewheel or cogs now, and maybe a chainwheel or two.
