Learn2 Install and Remove Snow Chains (continued)
Step 1: Pull out the chains

There are several different kinds of snow chains for your car. Most are made of stainless steel links. Newer models use cables instead of chain-links, and they may be studded or corrugated to increase traction on the road. For the purposes of this 2torial, the name for this tool will be "chains," but the same principles should apply to installing most makes.

In the box of tire chains, you should find two sets of chains or cables, depending on the make, and two rubber loops with hooks attached. Each chain set looks sort of like a ladder, with a closing mechanism at the end of each long strand.
