Fit­ting the chains suc­cess­fully

Central Otago Mirror - - FEATURES -

Pick a spot where other cars can see and avoid you. Ap­ply the park­ing brake! Lay the chains straight out on the ground. In­spect the chains be­fore you put them on. If they are tan­gled now, the tan­gles won’t mag­i­cally dis­ap­pear as you fit the chains.

Fol­low the

man­u­fac­tur­ers in­struc­tions. Lis­ten care­fully as you go. If you hear any bang­ing or repet­i­tive knock­ing, stop the car. Get out and in­ves­ti­gate any loose ends which could be bang­ing the body of the car. It may be some­thing as sim­ple as a clip be­ing left un­done. When ev­ery­thing checks out, pro­ceed cau­tiously.
