Learn2 Install and Remove Snow Chains (continued)
Step 7: Remove the chains

When the road becomes clear of snow, ice, sand, etc., pull over and remove the chains. Do not drive with chains on pavement. The steps are the same as above, but in reverse order.

     
  • Pick a spot where other cars can see and avoid you.

  • Apply the parking brake!

  • Unclip the rubber loops.

  • Unhook the inside and outside chains. Pick the chains off the tire and lay straight out on the ground.

  • Drive four or five feet, until the tires are completely off the chains.

  • Put chains and rubber loops back in their box. Be careful where you put them down. They're probably wet and could rust, or damage fabrics.

  • Happy motoring! Drive away carefully and be aware of other motorists on the road.
