I'm not going to "scream and groan", but damn don't you think maybe cleaning your chain and properly adjusting your derailleur might prevent this sort of thing to where you don't have to use random road debris to put your chain back on? I can appreciate seat of the pants problem solving, but doing it as a routine thing in order to avoid simple and BASIC maintenance is just beyond senseless. Use the resources Matt gave you and learn some stuff.


Totally agree with Raiyn, this is a basic dérailleur limit screw adjustment problem or worst case a bent dérailleur hanger (dirty chain not withstanding.) The Only 'hack' here is the author, sorry couldn't resist.


Sometimes things go wrong and accidents happen - either you (or your repair shop) messed up when repairing your bike, your frame geometry is janky, or you just bit it, but still need to ride home. I've been in all those situations while still learning (and we are all still learning) and would have loved to have this tool.


Man, I can't understand all those groaning... This great hack can help cyclists whose derailleur is perfectly adjusted but for some reason the chain slips of the large front chainring for instance. It happens..
