Konig's innovative design makes the CG9 snow chains quick and easy to attach and remove. Once the chain is looped around the tire and the three color-coded connections are made, the patented self-centering, automatic tensioning system takes over, creating a perfect fit as you drive away. You need to get out of the car only once. To remove the chains, simply unhook the connections and unwrap the chains from around the tire.


Konig snow chains are handmade in Italy of hardened manganese nickel alloy steel for ultimate durability. Features include dual-sided, 9-mm-diameter, D-shape links that provide superior traction for excellent grip on snow and ice. Anti-scratch nylon bumpers protect your vehicle's wheel rims.


Included with each pair of chains are mounting instructions, a kneeling mat and a pair of gloves, all packaged in a sturdy container. Konig's CG9 tire snow chains are backed by a 5-year warranty.


CG9 Installation

How to Install the CG9 Snow Chain

  1. Spread the chain around the back of the tire.
  2. Connect the plastic-covered, yellow and blue cable on the back side of the tire.
  3. Pull the chain over the top and around the tire. Connect the red hook to the red loop.
  4. Make the last connection by running the red loop through the buckle and then to the red hook attached to the tensioning cable.
  5. Simply drive forward to activate the patented self-centering, auto-tensioning system to ensure a perfect fit.

How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

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

Video Transcript for Konig Self-Tensioning, Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains Review

Adam: Hi, everyone. Adam with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be taking a look at the line of Konig's CG9 snow tire chains. So these tire chains are a really simple install. I know you're going to be using these in a probably not ideal weather, so being able to throw these on your tires in a quick manner is probably going to be the best way to do it. So it is very, very easy to install.

Like I said, it does come with a built in tensioner so you don't have to bring any extra materials with you. Also it was a tool free installation, so you don't have to worry about bringing those together either. It is a manganese nickel alloy chain, which is going to last a very long time and resist against all that salt on the road when there's snow. So it does have a nice diamond pattern to it.It's going to give you a lot more surface area compared to your ladder style chains. So these CG9 tire chains are going to have a very low profile.

As you can see here, we don't have a whole lot of wheel space but it is SAE S class certified so you don't really have to worry about any rubbing. This is a relatively smaller D link shaped type snow chain and what that's going to do, it's going to basically not give you such a radical difference between the rubber and the tips of your chains and that's going to give you a smoother ride when you're going down the road. And these also are going to protect your rim as well when they are installed. As you can see, the closest parts of this tire chain are plastic and especially this rubber tensioner here and a plastic is designed for this part right here, and that's not going to really make any damage to any type of wheel that you may have.So these do come in and pair of two and for your all wheel drive applications. Just grab another pair of two on etrailer.com.

It does come in a nice sturdy case. A lot of them come in canvas bags, which eventually wear and tear over time. So having a nice, sturdy, plastic case is always nice to be able to store them when you're not using them. It is a honestly really, really simple install. It's going to protect your rim.

Like we said earlier, it does have a built in tensioner, so you don't have to bring any additional tools or equipment for them to be installed. It's relatively easy. And on top of that it's going to get the job done. So let's just go ahead and install them together. So the first thing you're going to want to do when you're planning on putting these on your tires is lay them all flat. Make sure everything is nice and straight, there's no kinks in your links. And once all that is done, then you can go ahead and feed the Konig tensioner first, back around your tire.And once you do that, grab all this, go behind your tire and you go ahead and connect them. And while you're back here, just take your chains, start draping them over. We want to get this part right in the middle of our tread. Once you get them nice in place, you go ahead and take your red hook, hook it to your red link, and then you can go to the bottom here. And you do have this self tensioner right here and you pull this back, put that in there, and then give it a nice tug. Once you think it's nice and snug, you grab this other plastic red lever and connect it to your loop down low. Make sure everything's nice and tight, and we do recommend that you roll over these a couple times. Go back out check and make sure everything's nice and tight, and once it is, then you're ready to hit the road again. Well, thanks for watching at our look at the Konig's CG9 tire chains.

We bought these to keep in our Subaru Outback. We already have snow tires but having these handy in case of an emergency or getting through chain checks is really helpful. This is our second set of Konig chains (we also have a set for our other car) and they've been durable and reliable. The shipping is also fast! 937062

Small, thin links makes this a low-profile chain, recommended by etrailer for the 2020 Subaru Outback. Haven't been in snow yet--mid-October--but we have trips planned into snow country soon. 717594

I received the Thule chains and installed them to make sure they fit my car. They fit great and were easy to install and remove. Even seems like these chains might not be too difficult to install ~after~ getting stuck in the snow (bring a shovel). I know myself ... I probably won't be proactive and put them on before I get stuck in the snow. Ease of installation ~after~ getting stuck is an important feature. My first impression is that these don't look like "heavy duty" tire chains by any stretch of the imagination. I'm hoping if I do ever need these it will only be for a few miles or less. I'm thinking about ordering a spare pair because if something breaks (particularly if the self adjusting ratchet mechanism fails) I won't attempt a repair on the side of the road in a snow storm. But if I have spare chains with me I'll be able to swap 'em out with new and keep going with a full complement of chains. The chains did come with some replacement links in case a chain link fails. I think I'll keep a pair of pliers, a screwdriver, and some gloves in the case with the chains. The main reason behind my purchase is that if I'm prepared to install tire chains then it's unlikely I'll ever have a need to install them. But without them I might be stuck in the first snowdrift of the season. :-) 439764

Excellent Chains. Light weight, easy to install. Best of all was the fantastic customer service by Jennifer. She helped me select the right chains, made sure that they shipped on time so we could have them before Thanksgiving. She even emailed me once they shipped. Awesome Awesome!!!

Nobody wants to have to put on chains, but you need them. These are "safe" for my 2012 BMW X3 and are pretty easy to install. Nice, compact packaging. Have not used in snow but am confident that they'll do the job. 176479

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains


First impression opening up the box was good. The chains come in a great carrying case. Then, open up the case. It's very intimidating, and you need to fan it out before installation, making sure the chains are not tangled. Definitely need some practice runs before the big day, so practice a few times, don't want to be out there in the snow flipping out on how these things go on. Once you get the hang of it, takes a few minutes, and your good to go. Didn't try in the snow yet, so let's see. Waiting for the white stuff. 454312

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains


good product but beware dmw owners. you can get these on but it's a tight fit. there's not much room to get your hands in between the tire and the wheel well. i did it in sunny conditions and it was not easy. in snow and cold all the much harder. the chains are a solid product. shipping took a couple days longer than expected so order early. i hope i don't need to use these but at least i have them if needed. btw 2014 428i 331018

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains


The chains have not been used. I bought them just in case it was needed on my trip. When it arrived, I tried fitting it to the tire. It was easy to install and fit perfectly. The design is excellent and at 9 mm thick, there was ample clearance between the inside of the tire wall and the shock absorber. It also had protective caps to prevent scratching of the alloy wheels. I had tried another make that was advertised as only 6 mm thick, but in reality was in jeopardy of scraping the shock absorber because of its stiff joints. There was also no protection for potential scratching of the alloy wheels. 60574

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains


I waited to review the chains until I actually had the opportunity to use them. I drive a 2003 Avalon with front wheel drive. (1) Start with the extremely fast delivery of the chains, couldn't believe how quickly I received my order from e-trailer without having asked for expedited delivery. (2) A bit of advice: Listen to the other reviewers who suggest that one make a practice run at installing them. Don't wait until you are stuck in a storm. They ARE easy to install and take off, but knowing what one is doing really makes a huge difference. (3) I've had the "pleasure" of really needing the chains twice recently. We've had a very snowy/icy winter here in the northeast in early 2014. These chains delivered all they promised, easy on, easy off and great traction in very deep snow and on thick ice. 116946

Easy on after untangling. Safely up the mountain with no problem. Easy off. Found that individually bagging each chainset reduced tangling and eased storage in the provided carrying case. Hope this helps. Thanks etrailer.com for being there. 333414

Overall I’m pleased with the service you provided with one exception. When I looked for chains for my Chevy Volt I thought I was being directed to the correct product but that was not the case. So I had to send the chains back at a cost of about twenty dollars. I do feel that it was your mistake not mine. If not for that you would certainly have received a five star rating. 939528

  • What Tires on 2019 Subaru Outback Should Tire Chains be Used on
    I used a search engine to look up the owner's manual of your 2019 Subaru Outback and it stated on page 8-12 to use a traction device on the front wheels only, so you do not need chains for all four wheels. It also states you need to use a Class S traction device to ensure clearance and that you can't use normal steel chains, but you can use self-tensioning chains (these will be tight around your tire which means they will give you the clearance needed not to hit your Outback's wheel well).
