Learn2 Install and Remove Snow Chains (continued)
Step 5: Clip them down

Now take up those rubber loops with the hooks attached (remember those funny-looking things?) These will help hold the chains snug against the tire.

  • Attach one hook onto a strand roughly midpoint between two rungs. Then attach a hook directly across the hubcap on the opposite length of that strand. Work your way around the tire in this manner until all hooks are attached to the strand at roughly equal intervals. Don't worry that it's not altogether straight at this point. When you start rolling the chains will distribute themselves evenly.

  • Attach the other rubber loop. Attach it to the chains on the opposite tire just as you did before.
