Chain Cleaner Mangiacatena


Effetto Mariposa Chain Cleaner Mangiacatena. The first chain cleaner equipped with lamellar elements at both ends, so that the chain can be cleaned by moving it in both directions, very useful also for e-bikes. Equipped with six rotating brushes and a sturdy handle.

The best way to clean the chain with minimum consumption of degreasing liquid. The lamellar elements at both ends retain dirt and liquid inside Mangiacatena, while the six rotating brushes - continuously wet with degreaser - also act mechanically on the chain.

It can be used both on the lower and upper part of the chain, pedaling in both directions. Degreasing liquid or water can be added from above, without the need to open Mangiacatena. Made of shockproof and solvent resistant plastic. It can be refurbished with the appropriate replacement brush kit.

It works with single-speed transmissions (maximum chain width: 9 mm) and 5 to 13 speed chains.

Chain Cleaner Mangiacatena. To avoid disassembly and clean in depth, Effetto Mariposa has developed Mangiacatena: the best cleaning with the least amount of solvent, in a short time, leaving the chain on the bike. The washing is performed by six rotating brushes, continously soaked in the cleaning liquid, which actively remove dirt on each side, pushing the solvent inside the chain.

Instructions for use:

  1. Open Mangiacatena by removing the cover and positioning the lower part of Mangiacatena on the bottom span of the chain.
  2. Mount the cover making sure it’s perfectly aligned with the lower part, then slide the locking handle in place until it is fully engaged.
  3. Add the degreasing liquid through the upper holes ( Chain degreaser Allpine Extra from Effetto Mariposa) until the lower tank is full to the “FILL” level line.
  4. Keeping Mangiacatena in position with the side handle, pedal backwards for at least 10 full revolutions.
    IMPORTANT: the two lamellar elements at both ends reduce the waste of solvent, but slow down the sliding of the chain at least in the initial phase… so don't be afraid, just hold the Mangiacatena firmly.
    IMPORTANT: thanks to the lamellar elements, Mangiacatena allows - without wasting solvent - to pedal in both directions. To do this, we recommend keeping the rear wheel of the bicycle off the ground (using a workshop stand or other support).
  5. Release the side locking handle by depressing the thumb lever and remove it, open the cover, disassemble Mangiacatena from the lower span of the chain and position it, as already described, on the upper span of the chain, for a second cleaning step. Add more degreaser if necessary.
  6. Keeping Mangiacatena in position using the side handle, pedal backwards for at least 10 full revolutions.
  7. Disassemble Mangiacatena and empty the liquid contained inside (dispose of in accordance with the law if you use non-biodegradable degreasers or lubricants).
  8. Water rinse: mount Mangiacatena on the lower span of the chain, add water through the top holes and make at least 10 full revolutions.
  9. Disassemble Mangiacatena and empty the liquid contained inside. Repeat from point 8 until perfect rinsing. At the end, rinse Mangiacatena with water and allow to air dry.
  10. Dry the chain (rag, compressedair) and do not forget to lubricate it. 

For single-speed transmissions and 5 to 13 speed chains:

The chain runs straight inside Mangiacatena, making it also suitable for single-speed transmissions (for a chain with a maximum width of 9mm). No problem for traditional 5 to 13 speed chains.
