CU9 Pedal and Quick-Release Buttons

Konig's Easy Fit snow chains are supremely simple to use. No more crawling around on the cold ground or getting wet and dirty on the side of the road. Just drape the chain around your tire and step on the pedal on the front, center bar until it clicks in place at the bottom. No need to reach around your tires to connect chain sections. No need to drive forward or back to center chains.


To remove the Easy Fit chains, simply press the red buttons at the middle and at the bottom of the center element to release the tension, and then unwrap the chain from around the tire.



Konig snow chains are handmade in Italy of hardened manganese nickel alloy steel for ultimate durability. The dual-sided, 9-mm-diameter, D-shape links provide superior traction for excellent grip on snow and ice. The center tensioning element on each Easy Fit chain is made of rustproof aluminum for lasting effectiveness. Anti-scratch nylon bumpers on the chain and soft-touch fabric on the center bar protect your vehicle's rims.


Included with each pair of chains is a sturdy, nylon container that unfolds into a kneeling mat. Mounting instructions are printed on the inside of the storage bag, making them easily visible every time you install the chains. Konig's Easy Fit CU9 tire snow chains are backed by a 5-year warranty.


How to Install the Easy Fit CU9 Snow Chain

CU9 Installation

  1. Open the rigid arch section of the chain and pull the sides apart.
  2. Drape the chain over the top of the tire and tug down to fit it all the way around the bottom.
  3. Swing the pedal out and step on it, pushing it down the track of the center bar until it clicks in place at the bottom.
  4. Flip the pedal up into the travel position to lock in place.

How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

To choose the right snow chains, you must match your tire size. Those measurements can be found on the side of your tire, as shown below.


Tire size on sidewall

  1. (185) - indicates the width
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)

I've owned four sets of Thule Easy-Fit CU-9 tire chains over the years. I need them because they're fast and easy to mount and fast and easy to remove and I often have to mount or remove the chains while out on the road in snow. There have been times when the red cable froze on one of the chains and I couldn't remove it. I couldn't spread the hoop from behind the tire and it was a real headache. I had cut the red cable once ending the life of the chain and other times had to leave the car hoping for warmer weather to unfreeze the red cable so I could remove the chain.

These days and for the past few years I lubricate the red cable with silicone spray twice per winter. Lubricating the cable keeps the red cable from freezing-up. Unless the CU-9's have been redesigned not too long ago to give a better performance regarding the red cable I cannot give a five-star review. I'd leave only 3 stars. These tire chains are way overpriced. They also rust very easily making a mess inside the storage bag and that's with keeping them dry in between uses. Other than the red cable and the rust these chains have they have always performed well offering good traction even on ice. However still, I'd only give three stars.




by:

Positives:

These chains are very
easy to put on and take off. They are far superior to any other solution in deep snow.

Neutral:

Make sure that you have read the instructions, and practiced using them before you need them.

Negatives:

The thick bar section will shake your car badly if it's driven on parts of the road that don't have deep snow. It's a bit worse than chains with more similar sections.

Conclusion:

Buy the chains. Use the chains. But also install Winter tires.

Toyota Prius

I used these chains on my Prius for the first time on New Year's Eve. In the dark. In the slushy, icy cold. I'm a small, not particularly strong woman. They were so easy to use! The instructions are displayed inside the storage bag, which doubles as a mat so that you don't need to kneel or sit in the snow while you put the chains on. It took me a moment or two to understand that you can create a LOT of slack in the ring before you try and tuck them behind the wheels. Once I figured that out, it was easy to put them on and use the foot pedal to fasten them. Easy on, easy off. With one practice session, I can install and remove in less than 5 minutes.




by:

I haven't used them in snow yet, which is why I couldn't give them 5 stars. However, I did install them and that process was far superior to any regular or cable chains I have ever used.
You can literally install them in less than 10 minutes. True, they cost a lot more but considering that when installing chains you are often on the side of the road, which is not particularly safe and the weather is often fierce, I think they're worth it.

These fit my Mini Cooper perfectly and are really easy to get on! I haven't had the chance to use them in the snow yet, but they seem to be very sturdy.


Comments
These chains have been great! Its takes a minute to figure out how to get them off, but getting them on is a breeze and if you dont get them tight enough they tighten themselves as your drive. Theyre great in the snow and on icy days where you just dont want to take a chance. Perfect for my front wheel drive Mini Cooper so I can get up the mountain to snowboard!

by:

I live in California and have Mini Cooper - a perfect car for 350 days in any given year. I go to the mountains 5 weekends in a year and 2-3 times I really need chains for 10 miles over the summit. It takes 5 minutes to put these on and another 5 to take them off. Can't beat the convenience.

Review from a similar Easy Fit CU9 in Tire Chains


These chains are super easy to put on and take off. My only complaint is that after two uses, the pedal that you push down to activate the tensioning broke off. I have four of these chains, and the issue only happened on one of them. I did just see that there's a five year warranty, so perhaps I'll be able to get a replacement chain or replacement pedal!


Comments
I will have our customer service team reach out to you. The chains do have a limited 5 year warranty.

Review from a similar Easy Fit CU9 in Tire Chains


The easiest chains I have ever owned. Only caveat - these really need to be strapped on while the car is on pavement or anything flush because they are a TIGHT fit. I have an M240 and tried to strap them on in a gravel/dirt driveway that had alreeady been snowed upon. Even after shoveling the chains couldn’t quite slip all the way under, so I had to drive to the nearest asphalt, then it was a breeze. So worth the money to have something that can slip on and off in minutes.

Buying the right tire snow chains for my Honda Civic was easy with etrailer. Shipping was very fast. I ordered late on a Saturday and I received my chains the next Thursday. I'm extremely satisfied with my experience with etrailer

Review from a similar Easy Fit CU9 in Tire Chains


Went on as easy as in the U Tube video. Had a fresh 12 inch snow to test them with. I have a Ford F-250 4x4 and the little front wheel drive Mazda went better than the truck. No shoveling the driveway, just went back and forth and packed down the snow. Only thing I question is the bungy cord part of the chains. If that part will possible dry rot. The Thule chains make the car feel unstoppable. Ice snow I made 4x4s look bad. When you have chains that go on and come off this easy you are more inclined to use them. LoveEm

I bought these in spring so I haven't tested them in snow yet, but I must say I am very happy with them, yes, literally 12 seconds per side, AWESOME product, Imagine having to change regular chains on a busy interstate with Semi's flying by, SCARY, not with these! Super Fast and good quality. etrailer.com was great to work with too! Attaching a photo doesn't do justice, I suggest anyone to watch etrailer's video, that's what sold me as well as YouTube vid's.

Review from a similar Easy Fit CU9 in Tire Chains


We live in the mountains of Colorado and my wife drives her Honda Civic to work 50 miles away on most days. Our house is 3.5 miles off of paved roads and a 1200' climb over poorly maintained dirt and gravel roads. These chains are so easy to install that she can usually put them on or remove them in less than 5 minutes, even in dark, snowy conditions. We would be purchasing a different car for her if we didn't have these chains.

Review from a similar Easy Fit CU9 in Tire Chains


On my 2010 Camry, I tried them out on my back tire to see if I could put them on. It has the something in the way making it harder to put chains on. It worked out very easy. My son told me to make sure I get the plastic part totally behind the tire. My legs are the strongest part on my body and my arms and hands are the weakest. I look forward to trying them out in the snow. I will review later when I can use them going up our hill.

Review from a similar Easy Fit CU9 in Tire Chains


This set of chains are extremely well packaged for carrying chains to comply with CalTrans requirements that 4 wheel drive cars with snow/mud tires must carry chains. This was important to me since in the past 20 years I have never had to put on chains going, at or returning from Mammoth. I did a test install and they were easy to install. etrailer information provided was also excellent and the package was sent timely.

Review from a similar Easy Fit CU9 in Tire Chains


Pretty cool chain construction. This is my third pair of chains -- every car seems to require a new chain size. So, I had used your regular cable chains on my previous car and it was a big pain to put on and take off. For the new car I decided to get these "easy fit". I have not yet tested the chains in the snow, but putting them on on a parking lot proved to be as easy as the video suggested. My advice: 1. watch the review videos here on the site; 2. practice putting on/taking off the chains in a warm place without snow; 3. enjoy. Having chains that are easy to put on is plain safer -- you do not think twice about mounting them, so you are more likely to have them on when you hit that particular ice spot on a road.

The tire chains seems to be of a very good quality. The instructional booklet attached explain in detail how to set it up and take them out. It seems very easy install (12 seconds according to the booklet). I haven't try them yet, but we will, when we go to Colorado this winter for skiing.
Very, very happy with the product and the service at etrailer.

Review from a similar Easy Fit CU9 in Tire Chains


I bought these chains as a birthday present for my daughter. She is an avid recreational skier and races for her college team. I wanted to get her ones that she could install by herself quickly and safely when driving up to a ski resort or race meet alone. Just by following the illustrations on the inside of the storage bag she was able to install them on both tires in less than 5 minutes without any help or guidance from me. Taking them off took a few seconds. I have used many different chain tires over the years and these are the easiest to install by a long way. Hopefully they will perform well in the snow when winter hits.

Review from a similar Easy Fit CU9 in Tire Chains


I used this on a 2019 Subaru Forester once last year on a steep backcountry snow-packed road. It was extremely quick to install and remove, and it gave me great control going up and down steep grades. I have zero complaints in my (admittedly limited) experience with this traction device.

EXTREMELY easy to use, even right out of the package (which has photos of how to use in case you forget).

etrailer did a GREAT job of getting this to me ASAP for a trip where it turned out to be critical. HATS OFF GUYS!!!

The chains are just as advertised. They do take a little jiggling to get the bottom of the loop behind the tire. Service was lightening fast and accurate.

    I checked your owners manual and the Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Pro Snow Tire Chains # TH04115080 are a confirmed fit not only for your tire size, but they will work specifically on your 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata Club. Your owner's manual recommends you not go faster than 30 mph while using the chains, and that you use them on the rear tires only.

  • Tire Snow Chain Fit on Toyota Prius with 195/65R15 Radial Tires
    Tire size is one aspect of compatibility for considering use of a tire chain; the other is the year/make/model and version of the vehicle. A Thule chain that does fit this tire size is their # TH04115080. These are the S-Class type that require less clearance in the wheel wells. The Thule chains # TH01221090 that you referenced do not fit your tire size. Auto makers get the final word on whether their vehicles are suitable for use with tire chains.
