Today we are going to show you part number TH01221102 from Thule. This is their CB12 tire chains. As you can see here, the chains come in a handy carrying case. I have one of the chains in the center also you have a package with some gloves that you can wear over your mittens and whatnot to keep them dry while you are putting the chains on. Also there is an extra pair of links so in the unlikely event that you break a chain you can fix it rather easily. Also there is a kneeling mat so you do not get your knees wet while you go ahead and install the chains. A few quick notes about these. It does feature color-coded connection points to ease installation. A plastic-covered cable runs from behind the tire to allow you to move the chain without moving the car. The links themselves are a dual-sided D-shape that provides greater traction. And also this will not mess up anything with anti-lock brake systems or electronic stability control systems. It is really designed for passenger-type vehicles. We will go ahead and show you how it fits and how it installs on a typical tire.
To install the chain, run it behind the tire and then bring the blue cable behind the tire and hook them up at the top. Then pull your chains from the back side up to the front, and your red loop here on the end will connect to this red hook here. Then kind of push the blue cable back behind the tire. And then this chain here at the bottom will go through this tensioner here. Hook it through this other loop here. And then this part you want to hook this end up as close to this red hook as possible, somewhere on this part of the chain. Okay, and you have them installed.
All right, to remove the chains, reverse the same procedure. Disconnect it, undo this, and then on top here with the hook, pull the blue part back in and just let it fall to the ground. And part of the chain might be trapped underneath the tire, so just let it sit wherever and just drive backward or forward, whichever is easier, to retrieve your chains. And there you have it for part number TH01221102 from Thule, their CB12 tire chains.
Today we are going to show you part number TH00204102 from Thule. This is one of their tire chains, and this is their CS10 model. As you can see here, it comes with a carrying case, and you can carry both chains. Off to the right-hand side is a pair of gloves to help keep your mitts dry while you install the snow chains. Also, there is a set of extra repair links that come with. And then also, off to the left of that is a handle, and that is part of the quick-release system, which is one of the benefits of this actual part number here. It makes it really easy to disconnect the chain and take it off of the vehicle. And finally there is a kneeling mat so when you kneel down of course you will not get your knees wet. It has a patented self-centering and self-tensioning system. The tensioning system actually centers the chain on the tire as you drive. The pattern on the chain is asymmetrical, diamond-pattern chain with icebreaker reinforcements. And this will not affect anything like anti-lock braking systems and electronic stability control systems. And next we will go ahead and install this chain and show you how it works and how it looks.
