Video Transcript for Glacier Multi Arm Rubber Adjusters Review

AJ: What's up, everybody It's AJ with Today we're going to check out this multi-arm rubber adjuster for your tire chains. Now this is from Glacier Chains. What you're going to do is you're going to put this on your chain that might be kind of loose and not fitting super tight to your tires before you add the adjusters but you can see with the adjusters, nice and tight, I can barely move that chain at all. Let's check them out.So now we're going to remove the adjuster. This one's pretty tight, you do have to pull on it just a little bit to slide it out, which is a good thing.

Now they're removed, you can see what I'm talking about. I can easily pull on this chain, it moves around. You don't want that happening while you're driving on the road.Just so you know, these come in three different sizes, this is the passenger car size, you can also get light truck and heavy truck. So make sure you get the right adjuster for the right chains for the right vehicle.Now I'd like to show you another option that's a rubber adjuster that we offer. There's this one, that's kind of this rubber ring with these hooks that go around it and it's different already because there's no arms and the hooks you can remove too.

So that's one thing that's kind of against it is that these can pop off. And I like that they're attached on this one. You don't have to worry about them ever popping off. So if I accidentally pop this one off or a couple of them and I go to use this at the last minute and it's missing those hooks, I'm out of luck. It's not going to tension these chains and that's not going to help me when I'm driving.Now versus that, this one's altogether and it's got these rubber arms and I've seen them break before but you're not going to put them through as much as we've put them through.

We test fit tire chains all day long some days and so these get a lot of use, more use than you probably would, using it for driving a couple times a year, if that's what you use it for, they're going to hold up just fine. But that's also one of the negatives with this. But I still prefer this style over this style just because it's all together, it's complete. I can throw it in the back of the car and know that all the parts I need are going to be there when I need them.So as you saw, this works very well at getting that tension on these chains that might be loose like this and shouldn't be driving on them. This is going to be that solution that pulls them nice and tight and keeps it all together when you're not using it, that way it's easier to find, throw them on the chains and you get on your way in the snow and ice.Well thanks for hanging out.

I hope this helped.

Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters - Heavy-Truck Chains - 18-1/2" to 24-1/2" Rims - 1 Pair - PW103

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (59 Customer Reviews)

Designed for use with Glacier tire chains, these multi-arm, rubber adjusters make it easy to fit, tighten, and maintain tension on your truck's snow chains. Can be used on tire chains that fit rims 18-1/2" - 24-1/2" in diameter.


These chain tensioners are the best I’ve ever used. I have 35 inch tires and actually use two of these on each wheel so there is a tightener between every link. I plan to purchase more when these wear out.


Hi Carol,

The chain packaging was
op0ened and looked pre-used with holes in the sack as well.

There were no cable ends included to pull the chains over the tires so I am unsure these are correct for 235/55 R20 tires as listed. For now will use another vehicle, I may need to exchange thes, ideally that will not be a problem for you guys.

thank you!


Customer Service will reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Sierra K - 01/10/2022


Was panicked that the listed delivery date for the ordered cable chains would be missed and we would be unable to drive from central Oregon to Arizona in my 40 foot diesel pusher pulling a pickup because I couldn’t comply with the Carry Chains requirement for most of my route through Oregon and Northern California. However, they arrived when promised, even though it was over the Christmas Holiday, and we are happy campers. Thank you so much etrailer.


Almost too large for chains on a 20” tire but they are built very heavy duty. So far no concern of it breaking like the light duty style.

Follow up: was initially used on 285 55 r20. They were a little long but cut them down to proper length and worked perfect. I really like them. Got a second set of tire for pickup, 275 70 r18. Little bit looser on the narrower tire but still working great!
Jeremy - 11/16/2021


Worked great! They will last a life time. Great product....


If Alex is any indication, is the place you want to shop for all your trailer and traction needs! Excellent and very knowledgeable customer service!


UPS miss printed part of Apt number, from 2B to 2 on delivery print, so it went to another city 10 miles. I'm experienced enough to followed delivery closely and corrected to UPS, but some will likely to mess it all up somewhere. Please use FedEx if possible.


Never had to use it. Bought this because it was long term predicted to snow during the time frame of a 2019 winter trip to Las Vegas. However the worst we encountered was a very light dusting with nothing accumulating on the highway. The product is stored in my Suburban, next to the jack, just in case.


We received our order early. Always nice, and particularly this time, as we are going on a trip that will take us across mountain passes and into Idaho, where snow is predicted. These tire chains and adjusters are for our motorhome, and we hope to never have to use them, but having them is reassuring, and so solves the potential problem of being without if chains are necessary and/or required. When we use them we'll send pictures.


These cables fit the tires on my F-250 perfectly ( 275/65 R-20). The instructions are easy to read and understand ( I've used other tire chains before) and the installation is painless. I got the first one on in just over 5 minutes the second went on in 3 1/2 minutes. This was a trial fitting in a dry driveway so I strongly think a 15 minute installation is possible in more severe weather conditions. Thank you very much your service team went out of their way to contact me when one of my parts had a slight delay. Ted vG


Havent used them yet. With a trial run putting them on the driveway they fit my 20” rims perfectly and seemed durable enough


Great product, bought to use with the Glacier Tire chains I purchased from Etrailer. Worked like a charm ! Would highly recommend them to anyone running chains !!


Love it easy to work with and great customer service


Just received my Chains today for my Excursion 22x45x305, was suppose to have received them Friday, but do to weather UPS was not able to send them! When I call customer service they researched them and found that they had been held up in L.A. and that I wouldn't be getting them till Monday, Which where delivered at 9 am this morning! The representative was professional and handle this situation in a timely matter. Even thou the product got here late at no fault of ETrailer they handle it perfectly! Will be using them on my next trip to the Mountains! Another happy customer!!


These guys are awesome!!! I have a odd size truck tire. BFG's A/T 285/65R20. I called in and the lady I spoke with was very nice and very informative. I needed these chains in 2 days. When I ordered I gave her my address, but was using a company credit card with a different billing address. She realized this and advised me there may be a issue getting them in time due to they way the credit card would process. Had she not caught this, I would not have recieved them in time. Once they arrived, on time, they are great. Excellent quality. Easy to put on. I ordered tensioners as well. They are not needed, but they get the chains really tight. I would recommend them to anyone.


I like that etrailer called to tell me the adjuster I ordered was on back order and they had a similar item that was in stock. When I accepted the change, items were shipped out the next day. Good Job!


I have not used the tire chains yet but was grateful for the prompt recommendation for tire chains and chain tensioners for my vehicle. The order arrived on time in just a few days and is now waiting for use!


Fit perfectly and are much better than the traditional chain tighteners.


Got these for my chains at Etrailer. Worked well. Bungees are a must to keep your chains tight


I installed them for the first time today (my first for any tire chain). The instructions could be a little clearer for first time users. Your pictures are useless.
No problems once I figured out the steps.
Nice product.
Impossible to get it back in the bag after first use - broke the zipper on my bag. Could use a much better bag or bigger bag.

Overall a very good product.


It arrived yesterday.

I never really
"want" to put on snow chains, but always happy I have them.

I head to the mountains this weekend for some skiing.

I'll be sure to take photos, when they make their maiden run.


Service was excellent. They went above and beyond the call when the item I ordered was backordered. They called me, gave me options, and when it was clear my order wouldn't arrive before my trip, they made certain I would get the item I needed by shipping to an alternative address. Nice job! I'll definitely be ordering from eTrailer again.


Best service and items ever, thank you


Great tensioners, easy to put on, and they stay on when it counts! Much better than metal spring style tensioners.


I wished all bussiness were as helpful. As the customer service person are here. They only want the best for you.

Thank you e trailer

Although they're meant for Glacier Chains tire chains, I see absolutely no reason why they wouldn't work with your Cobra Cable Chains. I've linked you to our FAQ article about tire chains.

  • Best Tire Cables for a Motorhome with 245/70-19.5 Tires
    You are correct in that you only need to install the tire cables on the outer two rearmost tires on your motorhome. For this, the best choice is the Glacier Cable Snow Cable chains # PW2028C chains with hardened steel rollers. We additionally recommend # PW103 rubber adjuster that will help keep the chains centered and taunt. The price can be found on the product page.

  • Recommended Tire Cables for RVs with Limited Wheel Well Clearance
    In order to determine which tire chains are compatible with your RV you would need to look in the owner's manual. If space is indeed limited then you would want to use a set of chains/cables that are class S compatible as this will allow for the greatest amount of wheel wheel clearance. For your 305/70-22.5 tires, I recommend using the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chain part # PW2045C for the front and part # PW2045C for the rear. These cables have a low profile which in addition to added wheel...

    Unless specifically stated in the owner's manual, tire chains can sometimes be substituted for tire cables such as the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains part # PW2028C. Tire cables generally offer more clearance between the tires and vehicle components. Unfortunately, this is the only alternative to tire chains I can offer you. Should you decide to go with the above tire cables, you would also be advised to the use the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters part # PW103 in unison with them. I...

    The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW2021C referenced in your question are confirmed to fit the 225/70R19.5 size tires on your 2014 Thor Chateau Class C Motorhome and they are what I recommend. I took a look at the online owner's manual for the Ford F-550 chassis that your Thor Chateau is built on and it does state to only use Class S rated tire chains, for which this set qualifies. This means they are designed to be used on vehicles like your RV that don't have a lot of room to work...

    The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW2045C that fit the 275/80-22.5 tires on your 2017 Tiffin Allegro Red 33AA motorhome are Class S compatible so they are designed for low clearance situations. Typically the low clearance situations have to do with how much spacing you have on the backside of the tire, but between the tire and wheelwell isn't unheard of. I do recommend using the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters # PW103 to help keep the cables snug against your tire tread. Attached...

This is standard across nearly all of the tire cables/chains we offer. Please note that in order to keep the cables seated correctly the use of rubber adjusters part # PW105 for 15" wheels to 18" wheels or part # PW103 for 18-1/2" wheels to 24-1/2" wheels is recommended.

Other typical tire sizes on the Edge are 245/50-20 and 245/60-18 and the complete list of compatible tire sizes is available on the product page. As you noted, the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters # PW105 are designed for rims 15" to 18". If you have 19 inch rims, you will use the Glacier # PW103, which will fit on 18-1/2" to 24-1/2" rims.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for a 2018 Audi Q5 Quattro
    Between those options I recommend the Titan Chain, part # TC2317. Actually, these are the chains I would've recommended for you even if you hadn't already narrowed it down. Both the Titan chains and the Glacier cables you mentioned, part # PW1046, are Class S compatible, which means they're designed to be used when there isn't much clearance between the tires and the vehicle so they'll both fit. The reason I like the Titans so much more is becasue they're actually chains and not cables....

  • Chain Tensioners for Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners on Large Diameter Tires
    For the Glacier Twist Link Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners - 1 Pair # TH01571245 you most likely do not need tensioners. The cam-style side chains simply rotate using the L-shaped tool to tighten the chain appropriately. If that will not tighten your chains appropriately, let me know your tire size so I can confirm you have the correct chains for your tires. These chains fit the following tire sizes: 10.5x20 10x22.5 255/80-22.5 265/75-22.5 275/70-22.5 9x20 If you have one of...

    Since ice is a concern then the V-Bar Chains # TC3829 will be the best choice. You are correct the V-bars links of this chain do an excellent job crushing ice to provide great traction. When using chains like this it is highly recommended to use a set of rubber adjusters to keep the chain secured to the tire. I really like the Multi-Arm # PW103 design because if one arm were to fail the others would keep the chain secure unlike the competitors single rubber band with multiple hooks. I...

I also recommend rubber adjusters # PW103 to keep the chains tight and centered if the cams on the tire chains leave any slack..

    Yes. The P at the front of your 275/55R20 tire size notation just means that they're tires for a passenger car and not a LT (light truck) or ST (special trailer), so they are the same sized tires. The reason they do not recommend using tire chains on your vehicle is the limited clearance in the wheel wells of your vehicle could create a situation where if a chain breaks, it can cause a great deal of damage to the suspension or braking components that are stored there.

For your 2015 Chevy Impala, I recommend the Titan Chain Diagonal Alloy Cable Snow Tire Chains # TC343DC. These will fit if you have the factory size tires 235/50-18 or 245/40-20.

You can use cables # PW3010C if your manual allows the use of cable traction devices (see page 289 of the manual). I also recommend adding rubber adjusters # PW103 to keep the cables tight and centered. I have linked a video review of the cables for you.

These tensioners are designed specifically for larger wheels and tires. They will do an excellent job of keeping your tire chains in the correct position to ensure optimal performance.

For 15 to 18 inch diameter I recommend part # PW105, and for 19-1/2 to 24-1/2 inch diameter rims I recommend part # PW103. And for rims that are 13 to 20-inches diameter you can use part # TCMA1.

Check the tire sidewall on your Q60 to determine the size. This will ensure you get the right size chains for that tire size. If you have 225/45-19 tires I recommend the Konig D-link chains # TH2004705235. The D-links provide excellent traction and they are Class S rated for vehicles with limited clearance around the tires.
