Video Transcript for Glacier Twist Link Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Glacier Twisted Length Snow Tire Chain with cam tensioners. These are available in a wide variety of sizes to fit many different applications. Designed for highway use and not intended for off road applications, our tire chains do have a 30 mile an hour speed rating. As you can see, we've got a twisted length design. That gives us a raised edge on two points of our length to help get good traction for when we're taking off and stopping. They've constructed it using a low carbon steel, so we're not going to have to worry about a ton of corrosion. These chains have been designed for highway use.

They've got a rounded edge, it kind of smooths out our ride going down the road. Also, these chains are great for use on the rear axle or the front axle of front wheel drive and rear wheel drive vehicles. They've designed it in a ladder style. This is going to help us with taking off and stopping in a straight line so that this chain is going to go all the way across our tire. Now that we've gone over the features, let's show you how to get this installed. As you can see, we've spread it out here to check to make sure we have all the twists out and things like that, make sure we don't have any kinks.

Then we'll grab the side away from our tensioners. We just want to work this up and over our tire. We'll set this so that our front ladder rung or the first cross chain will sit there in front of the vehicle. Now it's time to roll it forward and allow those lengths to go underneath our wheel there. As you can see, we've got it up to about our third or fourth spot here. We'll now take the tag end, we're going to connect it on one of the six lengths there.

Let's do the fourth one, what I like to do is let those hang down so we're getting a direct connect onto our length. As you can see, we do have three extras hanging over there on the back side. We'll bring it around to the front. We've got a plus or a minus of one, so we have the option of using the third the fourth or the fifth length. I think the fourth is going to serve our purpose here. Bring that through, cam that over and there's a spare length that's hanging out here.

That's just going to go over and hold that into place for us. It's now time to start tightening our tensioners. We'll use our tensioning tools, place it in and rotate them around. As you can see, that's going to draw in some of the slack we've got and get each of our lengths of chains nice and tight. Now that we've got all of our cams tight, you'll see our chain's tightened up. We still have three excess lengths hanging off of each side of our chain here. One option would be to try to tuck that in behind our chain, to where it's not going to be flipping around. The other option would just be to cut it right off there, remove it completely. That way you won't have to worry about it slipping out as you're heading down the road. As with any manually adjusted chain, we do recommend the use of a chain tensioner. The one I've got here today is a really neat one from Glacier, the part number on it is PW105. It's got six lengths on it, as you can see, you're just going to connect those kind of evenly around our tire. That one's not so even. Kind of connect those evenly around, that's going to give us that extra little bit of force that we need to really hold our chains in place. Now that we've seen how the chain installs and how it's going to fit onto our vehicle, let's take a look and see how it performs with some footage we have of it in action. That will complete today's look at the Glacier Twist Length Snow Tire Chains with cam tighteners. .

These chains are excellent. They're a bit tricky to get on tight (so maybe not so great if you will be taking them off and putting them on repeatedly) but once on and secure, they are perfect for the plow truck. 457838

Chains were easy to install, and fit properly. To date I have not had to use them in a snow situation. If the repel snow storms, the were well worth the money. Chains are a good thing to have on board this time of year though. 334549

I purchased the glacier twist link snow chains in preparation for an upcoming ski vacation to Colorado. I have not had the opportunity to use them but the video on how to install was most impressive. even more impressive was the customer service from Wayne and the almost immediate mailing and delivery service. Thank you for your prompt and courteous service. 177441

Perfect fit for my van. I drive a 2016 144" 2wd, high top Sprinter van. During the summer it moves a lot of ice cream, via 400lb ice cream carts. During the winter, it moves me to Mammoth. When the conditions are good (for skiing).....road conditions suck...super cold and icy.....395 from Bishop to Mammoth is often closed, and if open...chains or 4x4 snow tires mandatory. I've purchased other products here...This site consistently provides useful revues and sizing fitment advise...I also took etrailer's recommendation to my regular tire guy to confirm is was a good match- which he confirmed. *Any Sprinter specific owners reading this.....the stock tires felt super sketchy in icy high sierra without the chains. But with them on, and, since I roll with a 750lb. lift gate weighing down the back end.....back tires chained up.....I felt really safe. I did need to trim a 3-4 links off to stop the inside access chain links banging on the axel (bolt cutters from Mammoth Chevron) after a day of riding around on them to make sure I had correct fit. This level of fitment should be expected. **I never review things online. I believe the email from etrailer, which led me to this review is the first i've received from them.....maybe 1 year since I bought the chains?....perfect amount of contact. ***Attached is a picture of me at Mammoth, because who wants to see a picture of well fitting chains. 562302

If you have been searching the internet for tire chains, look no further. I had recently decided to purchase a set of chains for my 2007 Toyota Tacoma Pre Runner. After an extensive search with the local auto retailers, and unhappy with the price they were charging, I had come across etrailer.com on the internet. Not only was etrailer.com cheaper by $30+ than everyone else, but immediately after my purchase, the customer service sales rep (George J) had emailed me with the invoice and had also indicated that he had upgraded the shipping to "expedited" which was greatly appreciated given the fact that he did not charge for this added higher level of customer service. The chains arrived right on time as promised via UPS. The quality is perfect. Almost polished in appearance with galvanized hardened steel. Also, they included a unique feature that I had not seen before "Cam Tighteners". If you haven't seen them before just watch the online video! They work great. Overall, I would highly recommend this product to anyone. I really appreciated the communication with George J. He kept me in the loop from start to finish. Given the fact that this purchase is "just a set of tire chains" but I really appreciated communication and price. 342431

These shipped the same day I ordered them and arrived a day earlier than expected. Two days later I used them for the first time and they were perfect. Easy and quick to install (~20 min even though I've never used chains of any type before) and gave me plenty of traction and confidence on the snow and ice. I am a delivery driver and these will undoubtedly save me many headaches and frustration since usually I don't have much of a choice which roads I have to drive in winter weather. 177157

Chains fit well, are heavy duty, and the included tightener tool worked great. Cam Tighteners are a must. Makes the job of putting the chains on easier. I bought the dual wheel version chains for the back end as well. We tend to get ice under snow on a gravel lane. These chains should keep me moving. I would recommend these to others. 111516

  • Recommended Tire chains For 2015 Toyota Tacoma To Pull Trailer On Grassy Hill
  • Although tire chains are designed to be used in snow and ice, I understand how they could be useful on a slippery grassy hill. The owner's manual for your 2015 Tacoma says to only put tire chains on the rear tires. Tire chains are designed for specific tire sizes. We show 215/70-15, 245/75-16, and 265/70-16 as the typical tire sizes that would be on your Tacoma. If you have a different size tire than those three let me know and I will be happy to make a recommendation that will work...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2018 Chevy Silverado with Size 275/65R18
  • Tire chains will make a huge difference for getting around in the snow. If you can't avoid deep snow, chains will easily get you around. Running chains on all 4 wheels will give you the best possible traction as well. For your tire size of 275/65-18 the Titan Chains part # TC2533 are a fit and what I recommend. I really like these chains because they are easy to install, they provide great traction, and are priced great too. The diamond chain pattern also help with traction around corners...
