Install the rubber tightener.
Always stretching the tightener

from one hook to the next farthest from
it. Make sure that the tightener hooks
are facing away from the tire. If hooks
are not facing away from the tire, damage
will occur. Chain may now be driven
without further adjustment.

Fasten the outside connector by
passing the long lever through one

of the chain links, folding it back in the
opposite direction and securing the
“keeper” link on the end of the lever. If
care is taken to make this connection as
tight as possible, it may not be necessary
to retighten after driving. If you find that
the inside fastener also has to be adjusted
to assure a snug fit, you should do it
before fastening the outer fastener.

Connect the outside fastener at
it’s loosest setting, then pull the

cable towards you to create as much
slack as possible. Make sure that
none of the cross members are
caught in the “shoulder” area of the
tire tread.

Connect the “speed hook” on the
inside of the tire (the side away from

you). As a starting point, we recommend
that you fasten it so that there are
no more than two “free” links. It may be
necessary to drive forward two to three
feet so that the inside connection can be
made more easily.

Drape the chain over the top of the
tire so both ends can touch the

ground and the long metal latch is on the
outside of the tire (toward you) and is
draped toward the back of the vehicle.

The two half sets are made so that one
fits only on the left and one only on the
right. See Close-up below

Park vehicle on firm level
ground, away from traffic. Unroll

the set and lay each half pair on the
ground next to the tires it is intended
to cover. Make sure that there are no
twists or kinks in the cable chain.
Make sure that the smooth side of the
eyelets (marked “TIRE SIDE”) will be
against the tire. If the smooth side will
not be toward the tire, damage will



Removal of Alloy Radial Chain can be accom-
plished by reversing the installation steps. For
easier dismounting, it is recommended that the
tire be positioned so that the fasteners are
somewhere between the 9 o’clock and the 3
o’clock positions on the tire.
