Kinedyne LLC has introduced the two newest members of its Grip Link tire chain family: The new 7- and 8-mm heavy-duty stud tire chains designed exclusively for off-road use.
Grip Link Brand Tire Chains already come in 7-mm steel wire v-bar and 7-mm steel wire square link designs for highway use. The new 7- and 8-mm heavy-duty stud versions give users more flexibility and two lightweight alternatives. Also, the 9-mm steel wire heavy-duty stud Grip Link Tire Chains have been discontinued, the company reported.
Engineered to provide both strength and durability, Grip Link studs, cross-links and sidewall chains are constructed of hardened, high-strength carbon steel. The new 7- and 8-mm heavy-duty stud chains come with 14 cross-links providing superior tractive characteristics, Kinedyne outlined. The new 7- and 8-mm heavy-duty stud tire chains also come with four tensioning cams for quick and secure tightening on single models and feature eight cams on dual-triples with four cams on the outside and four on the inside. Multiple cams provide even tensioning, ensuring a secure and tight fit. Kinedyne’s T-Wrench cam tensioning tool is also included in each package.
