Step 2: Place the cable behind the wheel from the left side of the tire. Note: the yellow end should be on the left side of the tire.

Step 3: Lift the ends of the cable to the top of the tire. Connect the two ends and lay them on top of the tire.

Step 4: Connect the outer sides of the chain. There are three adjustable links- choose the link that best suits your tire.

Step 5: Push the cable back to the backside of the tire. Center the cross chain on the tire.

Step 6: At the bottom of the tire, run the yellow tension chain through the locking device, as shown.

Step 7: Pull tension chain tightly towards the direction it came from.

Step 8: Weave the excess tension chain through the blue side-chain until you’re able to connect the rubber end into the side chain. NOTE: The excess chain needs to be just snug enough to keep it in place. DO NOT put too much tension on the rubber connector.

Next: Pull the vehicle ahead 10-30 feet and re-tighten chains. When traveling great distances, you should check the tightness occasionally. Loose chains wear much quicker than a snug chain. The top recommended speed is 30-35 MPH.

To dismount chains: Position the wheels so that the connectors are located at the top and the tension chain is on the bottom.

Step 1: Unravel the excess tension chain from the side chain.

Step 2: Pull tension chain back through the locking system.

Step 3: Disconnect outer side-chain at the top of tire. (Do not let chain fall behind tires)

Step 4: Disconnect cable ends.

Step 5: Drive forward enough to allow for chain removal.

Step 6: Remove chains and return them to carrying bag.

CAUTION: These chains are designed for use and travel on snow and ice. These chains are not intended for plowing.


HOWY SKID STEER

Step 1: Lay the chain out straight, so the inside side chains are closest to the tire. Be sure the side hooks are facing up. Check the chain and eliminate any twists.

Step 2: Grasp the side chain nearest the tire by the center and drape over the tire. Tuck ends with attachments of the chain under tire tread. Move vehicle slowly in the direction away from the attachments until the attachments are rotated to the 5 o’clock position. Connect the inner side chain into the quick hook.

Step 3: Fasten the outside quick link into the side chain. You may need to squeeze the cross chain hook as shown to ensure a snug fit.

Step 4: Pull the tension chain tight and hook fastener through the chain as shown.
