SCC recommends chain tighteners
(sometimes known as chain

spreaders) be used to take up additional
slack. To make this simpilar, attach the
first hook at the “11 o’clock position”,
next at the “5 o’clock position” and so
forth. The open side of the hooks must
face away from the tire. No further
adjustment is necessary.

Next fasten the outside fastener,
again making sure it is as tight

as possible. Drive a short distance
and retighten all fasteners. For best
results, make sure fasteners are adjusted
equally and as tight as possible.

Reach behind the tire and engage
the inside connector on the 2nd or

3rd link. See the illustration below for a
detailed look at making this connection.

Drive forward a few feet, far
enough so that one or two of the

cross chains pass under the tire.

drape the chain over the tire, so
that one cross chain is posi-

tioned at the point where the tire
meets the ground. Again make sure the
cross chain hooks are facing upward.
Hooks that face down (towards the tire)
will cause damage to the tire.

Park vehicle on firm level ground
and turn off the engine. Set the

parking brake. Unroll the chains and
lay them out flat on the ground, making
sure there are no twists or tangles.
Make sure the cross chain hooks are
facing upward.



Drive vehicle off highway to safe level ground. Turn off the
engine and set emergency brake. Unhook the chain tight-
ener and the outside fastener. Repeat procedure on inside
fastener. Lay the chains on the ground and drive vehicle
off chains. Inspect chains for damaged or worn parts.
After use, clean and spray with an all-purpose lubricant.
