How does a chain break tool work?

That tool is a chain breaker. Chains are made up of a series of inner and outer plates, each held together with metal pins (rivets) that are surrounded by a washer (roller). A chain breaker works by pressing a chain pin out to disconnect a chain, and if required, driving in a new connecting pin to put it back together.

How do you put a pin back on a bike chain?

Lift the inner end of the chain off the pin. Lay the outer end of the chain flat so the pin is now horizontal to the ground. Apply hammer again to the outer piece (the bit without the pin in) until the holes of the outer pieces are back into alignment. Now use chain tool to screw pin back through all pieces as normal.
