V-Bar Icebreakers


V-Bar Icebreakers

The V-shaped studs (also known as icebreakers, spikes, or cleats) that are built into these twist-link tire chains bite into ice, providing superior grip for a safer ride on ice-covered roads.


Installation

1. Drape the chain over the tire, making sure that the V-bars are facing out.

2. Drive forward about 1/4 of a tire revolution. (You can also lay the chain out and then drive onto it.)

3. Fasten the ends of the chain together.

4. Use the cam tensioning devices that are built into the side chain to tighten. Do this by inserting the flat end of the included wrench into the slot on each cam and twisting it.

5. Drive forward a bit and tighten the chain as needed.


You can use rubber or chain adjusters (sold separately) to increase the tension on the chains for a tighter 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.


Tire size on sidewall

185/60-15

  1. (185) - indicates tire width in millimeters
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)
  3. (15) - denotes the diameter of the wheel rim in inches

Chains are perfect, mounted and tested, getting my snowplow ready for winter. I only had to cut a few links off of the ends for a perfect fit, I made sure the v-bars were all pointing out. I am anxious for our first snowfall. I am happy with all of my purchases from e-trailer 703906

Bought chains for a small Kubota tractor and an F150 4x4. We recently had over 8" of snow on our gravel driveway, and the chains were a godsend. With the chains , the Kubota was unstoppable and I was able to plow. Haven't tried the truck yet. 333664

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


Chains are as advertised. I was just surprised that they came in plain heavy bags, stitched closed, with instructions printed on the bags of how to apply them. Previous chains I purchased had come in their own storage cases.My mistake, not your's for not investigating further. I found an old metal tool box I can use to store them, since I bought 2 sets for my 4x4 Tundra and they are over 35 pounds total.. Shipping was as promised and no Hassle. 163952

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


Sorry, no pictures! Wasn't thinking when I did my test fit. :( I was not sure how to put these on from the instructions on the bag to I "googled" a video for this product. Once I had viewed the video, installation was a snap! I was concerned that, even though all of the cams were tightened, the chains were not snug against the tire. I used the add-on tensioners that I purchased and I achieved a snug fit. Hopefully, all will be well when the need for real use actually arrives. Product seems well made and, as stated before, installation was easy! 325453

Product fit and performed as promised. Communication about my order status from etrailer was great. Price was as good as any I could find. the only downside was item I ordered was out of stock and it took a while to receive. I was given the option to substitute and declined but I thought that was another part of the great service. I would definitely purchase from etrailer again. 111217

Glad to report the snow chains performed well on a 40 mile stretch in the High Sierras. Everything from ice to 14 of snow all along the route. I am very happy with the product.

Bought TC2828CAM tire chains and TCSA2 chain tension springs. Haven't had a chance to use either the tire chains nor the link springs; however, all items where shiny and new and looked to be made of first class metal, so I'd expect each item to work as advertised without issue. The speed of delivery was like 2 days, so awesome. E-mail updates of shipping and the ability to track it was fine. I'd recommend purchases from here for whatever you'd want. 241107

Make sure you get the TCMA2 Titan Chain Multi-Arm Rubber Tire Chain Adjusters! I ordered the TC2828CAM chains for my 2016 Tacoma with 265/60-18 tires (the same truck/tires/chains in the video). Easy to install but unfortunately mine fit VERY loose when fitting them on a dry run. With the hooks on the tightest linkage & all cams tightened, they are still loose. So loose that two of the ladders can sit side by side with everything else tightened. This makes the rubber adjusters a must. 316125

I got these ice breaker snow chains for my tow truck - I pull a large fifth wheel and plan to travel the country - During the winter when traveling from New England to the southwest "With The Other Sun Birders" - I need to be prepared for any ice or snow storm to get myself safely off the road in an emergency - This is cheep insurance and would not feel safe without the capability of getting myself to a safe place to wait the storm out - Your service was good, when my package came it only have one side - I called and you quickly sent the other side - 295817

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


Haven't installed it, but ordering through eTrailer is an exceptionally good process. Free shipping and no tax made this a much better value than going through local retail. Shipping was a few days and delivered to my door. Research through local suppliers requires them to order model-specific products and it takes them a few days and at least two trips to their store -- this is a much better process. The instructional videos, reviews, and product details are spot on and more helpful than the manufacturers' site. Plugging in my vehicle loads up recommendations that fit my vehicle -- other retailers make you use filters and I'm less confident the product is specific for my make, model vehicle. 577723

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


I use my chains about every third weekend over the winter so I can pull my ice castle fish house on the lake. The chains allow me the ability to go just about where ever I wish. That being said, my tire chains are not as heavy duty as I thought they would be. They have not broken or failed. They are lighter duty than the similar ones my cousin and uncle bought from another site. I have a 2013 Dodge Ram Sport with 275/60/20 tires. I went with etrailer because tirechains did not have 275/60/20 listed. I find out now, that I should have just entered 33x10.5. On yours, the cam wrench bent with the 1st installation, and with the bent handle it is difficult to put them on without the assistance of a large screwdriver and channel lock. The cam wrench supplied with their set is both longer and a larger diameter. The design where the ends of the chains connect to each other on the outside of the wheel is also much simpler than what your design is. My chains fit tight around the diameter of the tire and it's almost impossible to get the little triangle slid over the tab, especially when the wrench is in there. I get it close, then use the channel lock to hold the lever in place, take the wrench out, then take the screw driver and pry against the tire to get clearance so I can slide the triangle piece into place. The triangle is tight against the wall of the tire preventing it from sliding easily. Try doing this procedure with gloves on when it is -20 air temp with -35 windchills. It's not possible. It's not always that cold, but anything outside in the winter is not fun without gloves. I'm disappointed with my tire chains, but haven't had the funds to buy a new set from another site yet. I think the fix would be to re-engineer the triangle slip locking piece or whole connection method, but more importantly provide a higher quality cam wrench that has a longer handle, made from thicker and a higher grade metal. I figured I'd reply since you sent me a follow up email. 468839

I have 2017 Ford F250 Platinum. Tire size 275/65 R20. Those chains are too long and I had to cut off 4 links all the way to last one and it still little to long. 476179

Review from a similar V-Bar Ladder with Cam in Tire Chains


Bought these to put on my 2012 Ram with aftermarket wheels and tires (275/60R20’s) these chains were a pain to put on and after about an hour I got the first one on. I made sure to practice putting them on at home before heading to the snow. Well made chains but be aware that for this certain size tire you’ll be able to get them on but not without some muscle power. Watching a video helped but I had to get every bit of slack I could to muscle the latch shut and get it onto the keeper link. 728441

Seemed to be great at first for my plow truck, first sign of trouble when I got the blade hung up in the snow bank that required a bit of aggression and the chain links broke. I mended, and continue to mend on a regular basis if there is any aggressive driving required. 722390
