Putting the chains back on the tire

I was messing with the tire the other day and the chain popped off. Having trouble trying to figure out how to get it back on.

Look at the chains on the other tire. Also most here feel it's easier to let some air out of the tire as you put the chains on.

Yea, definitely let the air out and then air it back up after the chain is on. If one came off maybe do the same on the other side and tighten that one up too. Or maybe the tire was already about flat and that is why it came off in the first place.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

Too late again! My only trick is the 'let the air out' one which you've already heard.

Most chains have two longer side chains with short twisted cross links and when you lay the chain out strait on the ground it should they look like a small ladder. If you lay the chain out on the ground you can make sure all the cross links are in place. On one end of each the two longer chains there is a small fastener that hooks and tightens the chain on the tire once the chain is back in place on the tire. You can see how this all works by looking at the chain that is still on the other tire,
