Shortening a Chain on a Toddler's Bike
I'm a newbie at bike maintenance, and my 3-year-old's bike has a loose chain. There's one chain link that looks different from the others, but I couldn't get anything on it to move or slide, and I'm just guessing about what I'm supposed to do.

How do I remove a link from a chain, please?
can u post some pics
There are two kinds of people in the world, "Those who help themselves to people, and those who help people!"
there are many different ways that they open, good close up pictures required to assist you.
Note also that on a bike with a single gear in front and back, you can tighten the chain by moving the rear wheel back a little in the frame. Taking a whole link out of the chain will tighten it a lot.
