BRANCHBURG, NJ — Kinedyne LLC, manufacturer and distributor of cargo control technologies, including cargo securement, capacity and access solutions for the transportation industry, introduced the two newest members of its Grip Link Brand tire chain family. The new 7- and 8-mm heavy-duty stud tire chains are 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. While 9-mm steel wire heavy-duty stud Grip Link tire chains have been discontinued, they are still available while supplies last.
Kinedyne’s new Grip Link Brand HD tire chains fit today’s larger profile off-road tires, feature four inside and four outside tensioning cams and come in an easy-to-store and carry pail with lid. The tough, durable pails each feature detailed installation instructions in both English and French.
“Grip Link tire chains are the perfect solution for worry-free traction over uneven terrain and through difficult environments including oil fields, lumber yards, rock, mud and any snow or ice condition imaginable,” said Robert Spooner, director of sales – Canada, Kinedyne Canada Limited. “These durable and lightweight chains are designed to deliver superior performance for vehicles traversing even the most challenging terrains.”
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.
The new 7- and 8-mm heavy-duty stud tire chains 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, thus ensuring a secure and tight fit. Kinedyne’s T-Wrench cam tensioning tool is also included in each package.
“Today’s off-road vehicles often use a larger profile tire that many chains just can’t accommodate,” Spooner said. “The new Grip Link tire chains work with larger diameter tires.”
