If one of your vehicles has ever broken down or gotten stuck in a space that’s impossible to move from with none of the necessary equipment or gear, you’d probably wish you had a set of tow chains to make the job a whole easier. If you are prepared, however, and are equipped with a set of tow chains, it is important to know how to use them correctly to avoid creating further problems for yourself. To make things a little easier for yourself, we take a look at the essential information on how to use tow chains.

What is a tow chain?

Our range of tow chains is made up of a grade 80 chain with a tow chain hook and oval ring at either end. Due to their small and lightweight nature, they are able to be easily stored and should be a part of a vehicle emergency kit, particularly when driving in climates where the chances of becoming stuck are increased e.g. in snow and mud. When used correctly, tow chains can be a lifesaver, but when used incorrectly, you can cause severe damage to your vehicle.

Attaching the hook to the towing vehicle

To begin the process of getting your vehicle removed from being stuck, the first thing you will need to do is attach the tow chain to the towing vehicle, using the hook end. This is often attached to the rear bumper of the vehicle or to a trailer hitch, which will have loops for a mounting hook. No matter which you have, both will provide an adequate amount of support for most towing tasks. These are the only places in which the hook should be properly and securely attached to. As an extra step of precaution, it is advised to give the tow chain a few tugs while making your way to the vehicle that is being pulled to ensure the hook is firmly fastened.

Attaching the tow chain to the vehicle being towed

Before you attach the opposite end of the tow chain to the inanimate car, you need to make sure that the tow chain has not become twisted. This will not directly the abilities of the tow chain, but it will affect the length of the chain and may cause some wear and tear on the chain over time. Once you’ve checked the chain is all good, you can now proceed to attach the other end to the front of the vehicle that is being towed. This is usually attached to a tow hook or a sturdy steel loop mounted underneath the front bumper or near the centre axle. A number of vehicles may have plastic covers over the hooks or are hidden in recessed nooks, either way, it is important to not attach the tow chain directly to the axle or any other part of hanging from under the front of the vehicle.

Begin to pull

Once both ends of the tow chain have been securely attached, you are now ready to pull. Ensure that both vehicles are manned at all times. If the towed vehicle is in full working order, it should be put into first gear with the handbrake off. If it is not in full working order, however, it should be left in neutral. The driver of the towing vehicle should drive very slowly, creeping forward until the tow chain becomes tight. Once this has happened, the vehicle is now able to be pulled. It is important to remember to keep all movements slow and controlled, as anything abrupt will be felt by the towed vehicle and may case the tow chain to become free.

By following these simple steps, you will be able to tow any vehicle with ease.
