Dread that chaining-up task on the way to your favorite backcountry ski haven?
Wrestling chains in roadside slush may be thing of the past. This clever system from Thule should make chain-up a snap. Simply hang the chains and system from the top of the tire and push to the bottom. Fold out the lever and press down with your foot to activate the tensioning system. The chain will automatically slip around the tire as you drive off. You’ll still need to kneel down, but the padded chain case doubles as a padded work/snow pad, printed with clear instructions.
To release, hit the red buttons on the aluminum bar and release the safety catch and pull the chain system away from your tire. Couldn’t be easier. Comes in pairs.
