Everybody knows that driving in snowy road without tire chains is just plain stupid. Slippery road is not something you should take lightly since it can cost you your life. However installing tire chain is not exactly easy for most people but with the Z6 that is no longer the case. The SCC (Security Chain Company) Super Z6 is an excellent cable chair for passenger cars, trucks or RVs and it’s really easy to install in mere minutes.
The SCC Super Z6 cable chains are well-designed, have marvelous grip and much better quality than the traditional chains. They are also much quieter than steel tire chains. You don’t need to worry when you’re going up to slippery mountain road though you do have to keep your speed below 30mph.
Putting on the SCC Z6 cable chain is fairly easy. After a little bit of practice you will only need to spend about three minutes (or less) for each tire. Yes, it’s that fast. So if you happen to meet a snowstorm on the road you won’t have to spend too much time freezing outside of your car to get all the chain hooked up.
To install the cable chain you don’t even need to line up the cables and drive over them. You just need to wrap the chain around the tire, hook up the links on the cable then use the yellow plastic clips to pull the cable chain toward the center of the tire. The instruction manual says that you should connect the fasteners on the outside then connect the ones inside. That is actually the slow and hard way to do it. It would be faster if you connect the fasteners on the top inside first then connect the outside.
I highly suggest you practice installing and removing these chains before you actually need them. Use a pair of gloves while you’re at it. Unlike traditional chains the Z6 cable chains don’t leave your hand all cut up after installing but still it’s better to put your gloves on. There’s nothing wrong with being prepared, right?
By the way there’s a pair of plastic gloves included with the set but you should just use your own gloves because they’re just cheap plastic gloves that won’t give any protection at all.
