Would be best to have a knowledgeable person to help inspect your work if this is the route you go. To much rivet smashing will lock the chain up...not enough and it may fall off.
That should be good for another 20K miles...
There are two kinds of rivet links, the flare type and the stake type, each requiring a different tool. The Motion Pro PBR (press-break-rivet) tool does both. By the way I know plenty of folks who have had their clips fall off clip type master links. Usually the chain stays on since the side plate is pressed on. Just a thought.
