generally speaking, you don't have many problems with master link chains, I've used them for years with no failures or lost master link clips, though you do need to pay close attention when putting the clip one, making sure it's seated properly and not put on backwards, for those that have never used a master link chain, that means the clip must be put on with the solid end facing in the direction of travel, I've seen more than a few put on wrong and fixed them in the field for the guys. If it's put on backwards, a stick or something can pop it right off if it hits the chain just right.
