O-Ring Chain Help

I just bought an O-Ring style chain (and new sprockets) for my wife's bike. It has a standard chain on it right now. Is there anything different that I need to do with the install. Of course, there are the extra o-rings for the master link but does it use the same style clip? The chain didn't come with any additional clips or rivets.

am i reading this right. . .you have no master link to go with the chain? If not, get the master link for that specific chain and pitch. some menufacturers master links will not work on other manufacturers chains even if they are both the same pitch. Where did you buy the chain?

There is a master link that came with the chain. It has two sets of o-rings and has grooves (recesses) on one side of the cross pins like it was designed for a clip. I am going to test fit and see what it looks like.

Upon further inspection, it is all there and everything is good. For a while it didn't make sense but the clip was in there. It was stuck to another part of the chain with grease and I couldn't see it.

Thanks for the help.
