Video Transcript for Glacier Heavy-Truck Snow Chains Rubber Adjuster Review

Hi everyone. It's Evangelina here at YouTube daily and today we'll be taking a look at our glacier rubber adjusters for your heavy duty truck tire chains here at each year. So these are the rubber adjusters that are designed to be used with your tire chains that do not already have intentionem system. So as you can see, this is holding in our tire chain and creating more attention. And since it is made of rubber, as you drive around your tire chain, we'll be addressing on your tire and it will adjust the width. It, now this is designed for rim sizes, 19 and a half inches to 24 and a half inches.

But, I do recommend using this for your smaller wheel sizes as well, just because knees run kind of small is already a really tight fit here on our 20 inch rims. So we have two options from a glacier and they, the main difference is how they are used and how they look. So this one is the rubber adjuster, and it's basically just a round piece of rubber plus six hooks. So those folks hook right into your tire chain. The other option is the multi arm rubber adjuster, right over here, where it's a hoop on the inside and each arm is its own adjuster.

I personally prefer this style of a tire chain just because it's so much easier to use and to hook this cell is cool when it comes to us, as well as how minimalist it is and how well it looks on your tire, but it is kind of a hassle to install and requires a lot of arm strength. So the hoop itself is 22 inches long, and then you can stretch it out. So it creates this shape on your tire. And this is what's holding in that tension. You also have these hooks holding it into place.

So these are the metal hooks. So you want to make sure that if you do install them, you have the pointy end facing away from your tire and not on it. So the hook itself is two and a quarter inches long and with an interior dimension of about half an inch on the inside. So this will work with your glacier cable, snow tire champ, which is what we have right here right now. But it will also work on your V-Bar chains, your chains that have links because they fit right in that opening.

There, you have two different ways. You can install this so you can have the hook already on your tire chain, and then you pull the cable towards the hook to attach it. Or you can have the hook on the cable first and then go towards the tire chain. Now, when you get to your last couple hooks, I think having it on the tire chain already will be easier when it comes to pulling that adjuster into it, just because it's hard to fit it around the tire chain, as you have all that tension on there. So when you do install this rubber adjuster, just make to try to have it as evenly distributed as you can. And what that means is you start at the top, then you go to the bottom, then you go left and you go to right So like we have our top down here, then our diagonal. So we just have this one last hook to hook up and then it will be installed. So my personal thoughts about this rubber adjuster is why I do like how it looks as well as how low profile it is. Again, I do prefer the multi-armed style when it comes to ease of use. That's just because it takes a lot of effort to install this. I even had my videographer try to install it as well, just to see what made a difference for him. And that also took some force. So all in all, it works well on your tire. If your focus or your priority is just an intake, all that tension on your tire, when it comes to your tire chains, this is definitely going to do the job. But if you want something that's relatively easy to use, either consider a snow tire chain that already has its own tension system, like the clinic X sheet, 12 cruel, or the Enigma's series, ease you have their attention is already, or you could get that other type of rubber tension, which is the multi-arm tensioner. And that was a look here at our glacier rubber adjusters for your heavy duty trucks, still tire chains here at YouTube daily..

I'm really satisfied with this snow chains and the rubber adjusters. Both items has good quality also good value.


Rodney was excellent in helping me find the perfect set of chains with short notice. They even arrived a day earlier allowing me to get a little practice in putting them on. I’m expecting I’ll need to use them on an upcoming trip. If so, pics will follow. Thanks again for excellent advice, service, and shipping.


eTrailer is the place to go for tire chains and chain tighters, because they ship them in good time and they have quality merchandise. The chains are new and fit up perfectly,even though the size was not printed on the carrying bag (they stated that it might be the case).
eTrailer stands by their word and product, and is a reliable company with what they sell.


I haven't actually had to use the product. We bought it so we could be in accordance with FMCSA laws when traveling through certain states in the winter.

  • What Is The Maximum Recommended Speed For a Vehicle Using Glacier Dual-Wheeled Tire Chains # PW4045C
    The recommended maximum speed for the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chain (discontinued) PW4045C is 30 mph. Speeds faster than that may increase wear on the chains and could lead to part failure. When using a tire chain, you will want to install them immediately to ensure a proper fit under optimal conditions so you will have a better idea of how to install them in inclement weather. Also, once they are installed for actual use, you should drive approximately 1/4 mile, then stop and re-tighten...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2015 Ford Expedition
    Based on the information I found in the owner's manual for the 2015 Ford Expedition, Ford only recommends using cables on the vehicle. For your size 275/55-20 tires, the cables I recommend are the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW3029C. These cables are Class S compatible and are intended for on road use only. I have attached a review video of the # PW3029C for you. It is recommended to use rubber adjusters with these cables, such as the Glacier Rubber Adjusters for 19-1/2 inch to 24-1/2...

  • Availability of Snow Tire Chains to Fit SUV with 305/35-24 Tire Size
    Before buying snow tire chains you will want to check your owners manual or with the car dealer if you can install snow tire chains on your SUV, or if there are any limitations. I would recommend the Titan Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # TC3031. These cable snow chains will meet the SAE Class S (limited clearance) ratings. A SAE Class S snow tire chain means that the minimum sidewall clearance is .59 inches, which is 15 mm. So if a snow chain has an internal clearance of 15 mm or less...

  • Tire Chain Options for a 2012 Ram 1500 with 275/60-20 Tires
    The use of tire chains on your 2012 Ram 1500 with 275/60-20 tires is prohibited from the manufacturer due to limited clearance between the wheel well and tire however, in most cases the clearance is indeed limited but not so much so that tire chains cannot be used. Manufacturers typically recommend not to use tire chains as this exempts them from liability claims but since certain states and conditions often require them by law, the choice whether or not to use them will ultimately be up...
