Hello, my names Mark Blocker. In this training series we're going to cover automotive tire chains. I'm referring to tire chains used for traction devices for driving in deep snow, ice or just general poor weather conditions or when you're required by law. Basically there's two different types of chains that are out and available. They kind of fall, there's a lot of different variations, but they kind of fall in two brackets of cable chains and standard chain chains. Which is like a standard tow chain style link and a cable chain being of like aircraft grade cable, rather than chain components. We'll go over those two different types and how to install, pre-fit the chains and some basic driving tips for operating the chains or operating the vehicle safely when the chains are on it. We'll both go over the pre-fitting and the actual putting the chains on if you were in an inclement weather situation. Okay, so please watch our first segment, we'll cover the different types of automotive chains and go through their uses and applications.
