Video Transcript for Glacier Multi Arm Rubber Adjusters Review

AJ: What's up, everybody It's AJ with Etrailer.com. 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.

Works very well stays put, even in deep snow and very icy conditions spinning

So far product is working fine. I only use them for my tractor when we’re moving snow and ice, it definitely holds the chains on even when you’re spinning



by:

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.



by:

Easy to install and use. They're a real time saver.



by:

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

While we havent had to use these cables during our travels, we know they will do the job and remain grateful for etrailers great customer service!



by:

The product appears to be a quality product. I needed to cut the links to fit my particular tire and they fit great and the cam adjuster snug the chain tight to the tire. Etrailer followed up on my satisfaction and I told them I snapped one of the legs on the tensioner and etrailer sent me a new set that I received days later. Great service from etrailer!



by:

Tire chains arrived in a timely manner, and everything worked great!



by:

Really like theses. Seems to make the chains even tighter to help prevent any damage to the rims.



by:

Ordering and delivery was simple and fast. Can't wait to try them out when I head up to Montana in November.



by:

The one that I ordered in the past ripped apart as I was driving and slightly scratched my car, but it was a long time ago and I was driving faster than I should have (I was driving 45-50 miles per hour on a somewhat icy road), I haven't ordered a new one since then



by:

Great service and product.



by:

I haul logs in the Pacific Northwest, we chain up 2 to 4 times a day in the winter. This product is easier to deal with than individual bungees.



by:

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!



by:

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



by:

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.

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.



by:

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.



by:

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 !!



by:

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.



by:

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.



by:

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!!



by:

Product fits great, fantastic service!



by:

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.



by:

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



by:

Very pleased !!
Fit like a glove, best
price around.
These guys beat [online] a lot of the time!!
Will buy again : )



by:

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!

  • Fit of Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters # PW103 for Cobra Cable Chains on 22 Inch Rims
    The Glacier Chain # PW103 Rubber Adjusters are designed for Glacier Chains that fit rims 18-1/2 to 24-1/2 inches in diameter. 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.

    The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW1042 will work on your 20 inch tires you have on your 2016 Mustang. These chains are a nice option for occasional travel. I recommend using a tire chain tensioner like part # PW99 to hold the chains in place when installed.

    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...

    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 # PW105 is for rims that are 15 to 18 inches in diameter. Be sure to check the owners manual for your truck to determine if there are any snow chain restrictions.

    Yes, the maximum speed that you can travel with the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains part # PW3029C installed is 30mph on any road. 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. I also recommend that you test fit the cables before you use them so you are prepared when...

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 Adjuster Recommendation for a New Holland Skid-Steer Tire Chain
    The Titan Chain Multi-Arm Rubber Tire Chain Adjuster for Light Trucks # TCMA2 should work for your application. These are compatible rims 14" - 24" in diameter (not including the tire sidewall) so since your tire chain is 25" this will reach. All adjusters have about the same amount of durability so there aren't any that are classified as "heavy duty" necessarily.

  • 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.

I also recommend rubber adjusters # PW103 to keep the cables tight and in place. Be sure to check the vehicle owner's manual for specific information on the use of tire chains.

  • Recommended Distance and Speed for Snow Tire Cable Chains on 2015 Chevy Impala
    There is not a limit to the miles you can drive on Snow Chains for your tires. There is a speed limit rating of 30 mph, and you should not use them on dry pavement, other than that, there are no limitations. 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. If you have the factory 245/45-19, then I recommend the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW1042 along...

    There isn't a Snow Sock that fits 275/45-20 tires on a 2015 Porsche Cayenne but we do have some Class S rated options for vehicles with limited clearance. 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.

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2014 Infiniti Q60

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.

From those I recommend the Titan Chain # TC2828 chains in the ladder pattern and with V-Bar link for exceptional traction on ice. I also recommend rubber adjusters # PW103 to keep the chains tight and centered if the cams on the tire chains leave any slack..

  • Are Rubber Adjusters Needed for Cable Tire Chains on a 2011 Audi Q5 with 235/55-19 Sized Tires
    Cable chains, like the Titan Chain Cable Tire Chains part # TC2019, do not have any type of tightening built into them so rubber adjusters are almost always needed. For adjusters I recommend the Glacier Multi-Arm, part # PW103. I like the design with the metal ring in the middle because if one arm were to break you still have 5 other arms to keep the chains tight on your tires. The cable chains are for very limited use and really won't supply a lot of traction for you. If you plan to...
