How do you fix a kids bike chain?

Hold the front portion of the chain so it is not engaged with the front sprocket. Rotate the pedals forward slowly by hand until the chain engages around the top and underside of the front sprocket. Check the rear sprocket to make sure the chain is snug on it. Lower the rear wheel, or turn the bike upright.

Similarly, how do you fix a bike chain without gears?

To fix a skip in the rear derailleur, shift your chain into the smallest ring on your rear cassette (the hardest gear) and the middle or larger ring on your front derailleur. Press your shifter once. If the chain doesn't move up a gear, you need to add tension.

Also Know, why won't my chain stay on my bike? Adjusting your rear derailleur limit screws If your chain is coming off at the rear, it's often a simple matter of adjusting the limit screws on your rear derailleur. If your chain is coming off the outside of the cassette, put the chain onto the larger chainring and the smallest rear sprocket.

Thereof, why does my kids bike chain keep falling off?

Fixed Gear When these nuts become loose, the wheel can slide forward, shortening the distance between your pedals and your wheel. This causes a loose chain that is prone to falling off. Loosen the axle nuts further and slide the wheel into its proper place. Then tighten the nuts.

When you pedal the chain comes off backwards?

however the chain is probably coming off when you pedal backwards because it is simply too loose so you need to figure out how to tighten your chain. and if the chain is tight enough already it may need replacing or it will probably soon snap.
