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. .

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Installed these on both tires and it only took under 30 minutes. Watched a online video and installation went exactly as in the vid. Terrific fit on the 03 Ranger 15" 2 wheel drive vehicle. Used 5 spoke tighteners and everything is ready to go. Drove a couple of hundred feet down the drive and all went well.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Although I haven't used them in ice or snow yet, the snow chains appear to be of great quality and are very easy to install. The cam tighteners work nicely and hold the chain on the tire with no slack. Etrailer.com was great to work with. Ordering was easy. They kept me updated via email during the shipping process. They upgraded my free shipping and I received my order in 2 business days instead of 7 as projected originally. I can tell that they care about their customers.


Comments
I got them after the big snowice storm we had here last year. I only had the opportunity to use them one time since getting them and really just went out then to try them out in some slush. I like them and enjoy the fact that they are in the truck at all times. It doesnt snow/ice much here, but Im ready if it does. Its bad to be like this, but I hope it snows this year just so I can use my chains? Ha!I have told others about your company and encouraged them to get chains from you.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Had to pull the chains out for the first time last month when my 1991 F-250 got held up on a very slick and steep ice covered road. They fit over my LT215/85R-16 Firestone Winterforce LT E tires very nicely and on the first try with no problems. I have only used chains on smaller cars before this but these installed very easily with the caming links and included tool for tightning. These chains seem to have a good range of adjustment and were also easy to remove. They seem sturdy and well made and of course traction was very solid once they were installed. Highly recommended.


Comments
Great. I put the chains wet in plastic bags for a year and they hardly rusted at all. Installed them on my larger 23585R-16 tires and they do fit that size too.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Excellent chains on 2005 GMC Sierra. Cam Locks are good but you really need to use a tire bungee or equivalent to pull the chains tighter. I use wire ties for the extra length of chain on the inside and outside firewall. Turns the truck into a total snow beast, I have yet to get stuck and have never used the winch I bought for that purpose.


Comments
Sold the GMC, bought a 2011 Tundra 4.6L DoubleCab. These chains fit a little better on that vehicle. This time the chains are on an all season radial, not snow tires. Makes the truck invincible as a plow machine. I install them on a level garage floor and make very sure they are on super tight.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


The order was handled very fast, and I got the snow chains in no time. Those are chains for big vehicle, they are heavy and sturdy. Comparing to diamond pattern chains that I had perilously, the new chains almost impossible to tangle. It takes just 30 seconds to lay them correctly on the ground. In my garage I put them as instructed in the video on etrailer web page. But in real life scenario, on highway shoulder, I would probably lay them down on the ground, drive 2-3 feet forward and try to close the chains on top of the wheel (versus crawling on the ground and trying to reach behind the wheel). The tension system is simple and intuitive. Comparing again to diamond pattern chains, this tension system is much more robust. The only downside of those chains, they miss caring bag. The bag they where shipped in, has no zipper, and cannot be closed once open.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


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.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


I've looked for weeks for chains to fit my 34x10.5-17 tires but without luck. I even called a few other tire chain folks and they told me they couldn't help me. I then tried another search online and came across etrailer.com. They said they not only had a set of chains but they were in stock and could be shipped out the same day. They arrived in 2 days. I fit them on my truck and they fit perfectly. They are very heavy duty and exactly as etrailer said they would be. These guys are the best and I'll be referring folks to them. Thank you etrailer!!

Chains fit well, are heavy duty, and the included tightening tool worked great. Cam tighteners are a must. I would recommend these to others. My old truck is now ready for winter. The front tires chains are PWH221SC.

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.

great product The chains worked great in the deep snow we were hit with over the weekend. I was the only one on my road that was able to get off the mountain. The grades here are steep and without the chains you can't get up the hills. My driveway has a 9 percent grade and I didn't even slip a tire going up it.

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.

Quick shipping & delivery even during Covid. Chains installed easy & fit like they were made for that size tire. So far I have nothing bad to say about them. With at least a year service, they may earn that fifth star.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


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.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


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.

Review from a similar Twist Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Used my new chains for the first time this morning and they were great! Was trying to go thru frozen corn snow which is extremely difficult. Put them on the front tires so I could be sure to stay on the road plus the extra weight of the engine gives you better traction. Each time the tires started spinning from the resistance I just backed off on the accelerator and the chains just kept eating through the snow and I made it up the hill which I really didn't expect to do! I bought some "cable" chains for my last pickup and they just didn't do the job. These heavy links give you much better traction. Had some issues with the tighteners staying locked but next time I'll just hook the Glacier Multi Arm Adjuster (which worked great also!) thru the end of the tightener and this should fix that issue!

We ordered the snow chain's on saturday with the help from the lady at 800 number. I explained that we needed them by Dec. 23rd and the lady assured us we would have them in 3 days. They were delivered on the following tuesday, it only took 2 days. Thank you so much, we are going to Illinois for Christmas and really need those chains.

Never had to use yhem but we have them if we need them. They are fairly easy to install so i am very appreciative of that. We thought they are well worth the price we paid. Our children live in illinois so we are sure we will need them sooner or later.
