SOURCE: chain master link
you will need to smash the rivets or you will loose the link for sure. It takes a special tool that I'm sure you don't have. The correct master link should be available locally. I have just checked our inventory and can only find the clip style links. If we sent you the rivet style it must have been the last one. We have plenty clip style links here but Tuesday is the best we can do now for shipping. I apologize for not sending the clip style. I'll check on how that happened.,

There is no master link. Go to a local bike shop and have them show you how to use a chain tool. Then buy one from them to return the favor.
Details here, but get someone to show you how it's done. There are variants you should be aware of.

Yes they sell links for that at the saw shop. You file the head off two rivets in the chain to remove however many links you need then install the connecting link. If you're not sure how many to remove, take out one at a time putting the connecting link in without bradding the rivets. Put it back on the saw and see if its still too long. When the length is right you brad the end of the rivets that come with the new link.

Yeah, they generally don't have those Master Links anymore.
For most modern bikes you have to use a CHAIN BREAKER TOOL. See the following link for a picture and general price:
Here is a link to an online How To Guide on how to use a CHAIN BREAKER TOOL to break a chain and replace it:
And here is a link to a short video on the process as well:
It is not an overly difficult repair so you should not have much problem with it even if it is your first time using the tool.
Please comment back here to this page if you have any details to add, have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.
I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.
