Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (102 Customer Reviews)

Designed for use with Glacier tire chains, these rubber adjusters make it easy to fit and tighten your vehicle's snow chains in no time. Can be used with any type of Glacier chain.


I tried them on; and they fit well. I'll be ready for my subdivision's icy conditions next time. Thanks for the rapid service, and here are some photos from the test today; though you may not want to use the tension photo, because the clips should have been rotated to the next section


Really helpful for getting any extra slack out of the chains. My only issue is that the hooks can come off of the rubber ring. I put these on in 5 inches of snow and every time one would fall off I needed to dig through the snow to find it.


These are real heavy duty adjusters. Unless you have 12 to maybe 14 inch wheels, go with the 16-20 inch size. I installed them on a 16 inch Dodge Dakota wheel and the rubber is very difficult to stretch across the wheel, let alone make the other three attachments.

I really like the chains, they are so much easier and lighter than thechains of my younger years. However, I still feel the same about theadjusters. They are much too small andor not flexible enough, making itvery difficult to stretch them, even just across the wheel. My wife wouldnever be able put them on should the need arise. I suggest you find adifferent supplier for that product or a different brand.

Great products an even better service!


Bought this product to replace bungee cords to keep my snow chains tight. They work great. The tensioners fit easily inside my chain bag so every thing is kept together. Great product, I recommended them to a couple of my buddies.


All items arrived in good condition and all were as described and were as

The items, three sets of tire chains and three sets of chain tighteners were
inspected, but as of this date none of the items have been installed or
placed in service. The products all appear to be of good quality and should
perform as expected when used.

At this time, I rate the order response time as excellent and all items were
shipped quickly and arrived in good condition and if they do not prove to
perform well I will quickly respond with a follow-up review to indicate any

Will look forward to doing additional business with




These worked very well for the chains that I bought last year. I drive a 1998 4Runner Limited with 16" rims. It took a little bit of practice centering the chains on the tire so definitely do so before you get a bunch of snow. If it seems like this tensioner is too tight, doublecheck that the chains are positioned on the tire correctly and not too far in toward the wheel well.


Went to new style chains. Too difficult to put on when it's snowing and not ideal conditions (like a nice dry garage or driveway). the tensioners are to stiff in the winter and my wife cannot install correctly. Would not recommend the chains OR the tensioners.


I ordered three sets of chains. One for my van, one for my small truck and one for my big truck. The chains with the cams are very nice and easier to deal with. Don't buy the rubber rings with hooks that is used to keep the chain centered, it is cheap and will not last the winter. Buy the short rubber straps at any hardware, they work perfectly. These are adequate chains for moderate use.


These are an absolute necessity for tire chain applications whether you use traditional chain-link, or cable chains for your vehicle. Excellent quality rubber with great steel hook construction makes these a terrific addition to your winter weather gear for your automobile.


I appreciate that you/your company does follow ups to purchases after a year. I think that is great. That being said, since ordering the tire cables/chains, it has not snowed enough to use them! I have saved this email and promise to review them once we actually get to use them. Thanks again!!


Having just tried out this chain tightener for fit, I can attest that it does what it's supposed to do. The hooks were loose on the rubber and easily fell off (thus, 4 stars), so I gently squeezed them a bit in a vice, just enough that they no longer fall off of said rubber "doughnut" when being handled. It was relatively warm when I tested them for fit (30 degrees F.). I suspect that this "rubber band" will be somewhat harder to stretch in colder weather.


Just put these on my International Harvester Garden Tractor. Easy to install, fit just right, I got these because the black rubber bungees I used last winter were a problem. Two broke during the winter, and two more broke when I tried them this fall. If these hold up I'll be very happy

Still working like the day I bought it. I have owned several of the type of convertible ball with a screw on they top that have failed after a few uses. The internal parts rust, the screw top strips. Besides the convertible ball with the push pin that I am using now, I have had these in the past. Always trouble free
Russell - 11/10/2020


The quality of the Rubber adjuster looks good but unfortunately the ones that were recommended for my tire/rim size are way to small. I pulled so hard to install them I nearly broke the rubber and that was on a 60 degree day and still couldn't get more than 2 hooks attached.
Other than that they should work great for the right application.


Pw 100 is too short for my camry 1999, 205 65 15, Pw99 may be better. I put the rubber adjusters on for testing, later, I found there has a cutting mark on the rubber, It think it too small


Fortunately I didn't have to use it. I purchased it just in case it became necessary to put the chains on when we went through the Rockies.
Looks well made, and glad to have purchased them.
Just noticed below though, that your instructions pdf links are both dead.
Would have been nice to stick a copy of both of them in the bag for future use.


Haven't had to use the snow cables as of yet.However the courtesy of your phone sales order rep.was very good.Your website was very good,including the details of the product & on installation was very good.I received the cables in the time as I was told by rep.very prompt.UPS service.So far very good service,good company.


Great product. Excellent service and easy to order. I got 2 pair for the glacier cable chains I purchased. They are a must have, and pretty easy to install. Perfect fit. Makes those chains nice and tight. Very happy customer.


If your chains do not come with built in tensioners, this product is an absolute must have. Mine were easy to attach and held perfectly through a lot of miles in heavy snow. If they are cleaned with soapy water after the season is over, they should last for several years. An excellent product!


I bought a set of chains and tire chain tightners, but haven't gone North yet, live in Atlanta, so I haven't used either. But I do have to say your ordering and follow up are the greatest. Was never too busy to answer my questions, ands nevere put on hold or got some computor generatyed answer..the products look great, much different and definetly much lighter than the chains I used when living in Pa. Thank you all for your help and thoughtfulness.


The rubber adjusters are a "must have". They keep the chains tight so there is no need for adjustment.This is truly a bargain!.


Every product purchased from has been excellent. They always provide prompt delivery.


Perfect Fit for my 94 Dodge Ram 2500. I put them on and left them on all winter but never went anywhere. Put them on just in case I needed to use my old truck during the brutal Wyoming winter. This truck only has 92K miles on it! The milage is so low because I never go anywhere in this old truck.


Received 2 sets of 12" rubber chain spreaders and they were of the highest quality I've ever seen. I was more than satisfied with the product. I live in Pittsburgh, PA, called your location in St. Louis late Friday afternoon, and the product was delivered the following Tuesday. The person I spoke to in St. Louis was a pleasure to deal with and had an excellent knowledge of the product that I ordered. I would highly recommend your company and would deal with you people again without hesitation. Thank you.

  • Can Tire Chains Be Put On All 4 Wheels of a 2012 Toyota Sienna Limited AWD
    Normally, on all wheel drive vehicles, you would place a set of chains on the main drive wheels but you can install them on all 4 wheels. The chains we carry come in sets of 2 so for four wheels you would have to order 2 sets. I have included a link to the tire chain main page for your Sienna. If you have a different size tire than what is listed on the page let me know and I can determine what chains will fit. You will want to consult the vehicle owners manual on additional information...

  • How Fast Can I go with Snow Chains on my Vehicle, Should the Chains be Removed for Dry Pavement
    You will want to stay within the speed range the manufacturer of your chains recommends, typically 25-30 miles per hour is the limit. To prevent damage to the chains and your tires you should remove the chains once you get on dry pavement. I attached an FAQ article below on snow chains that you might find informative.

  • Should I Use Snow Chains when I am Plowing Snow
    For optimum traction, you will want to have chains on all four tires of your truck when you are plowing. Having chains on one axle would help, but would not be as beneficial. However, you should note that if you are using chains there is a chance you will damage the road beneath you as the chains dig through the snow into the the pavement or concrete. If potentially damaging the road beneath you is not a concern, I would strongly recommend you use chains as you will get increased traction,...

  • Are Rubber Adjusters Needed for Tire Chains on a 2003 Honda Accord
    There were several different tire size options available for the 2003, including tire size 195/65-15. Check the side wall of your tires to make sure that is the size they are. If you have a different size, let me know and I can recommend a different set of chains. If you indeed have 15 inch wheels then the Rubber Adjuster # PW100 is easy to fit and tighten the chains and keep them in place. I have included a link to our tire chain FAQ article for you.

  • Should Tire Chains be Put on Both Wheels or Just Outer Wheels on a Dually Axle
    You can install tire chains on either both tires or just the outer tire on a dually set of tires (per side). Having chains on both will provide the best traction but it is a little more difficult to install them. The distance of the trip isn't as important as the road conditions and the type of terrain. In heavy snow or ice or steep grades, I would put chains on all the tires of a dually axle. If you can tell me the tire size I can determine which chains will fit. I have included a link...

  • What is the Speed Limit when Using Tire Chains on a 2003 Mazda MPV Van
    The maximum speed recommended by tire chain manufacturers can vary from one chain to the next. Usually rated between 25 to 30 mph. However, your MVP owners manual specifies not driving over 19 mph when using chains. Always go by the lower rating and make sure to drive safely in hazardous conditions. I have included a link to our FAQ article on tire chains for you.

  • Can Only One Set of Snow Chains be Installed on a Vehicle
    We recommend that you install chains on your drive wheels. So if you have a front wheel drive - put a pair on the front. If you have rear wheel drive - put a pair on the back. If you have all wheel drive or 4 wheen drive - put a set on all four tires. Just check your owners manual for factory recommendations or limitations.

But you will need to consult the vehicle owners manual to determine if there are any recommendations or restrictions on the use of cables or chains on the vehicle.

    The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chain # PW1034 that you referenced will not be as bumpy as other chains because they are not as large as linked tire chains. These have an outside diameter of just under 1/3 inch. When tire chains are installed it is not recommended to drive over 30 mph, so between the speed and the snow on the ground, you should not have that bumpy of a ride.

If you meant LT225 vs P225 (/75-16 for both) then you can use use the appropriate size chains for both types of tire but some are better suited for one style or the other.
