What are 'self-tensioning' devices?
Posted by on 24 October 2011 03:32 PM
Self tensioners save the hassle of having to get out of the car after half a mile or so and give the tensioning chain a further pull just to check that everything's tight.  RUD’s solution (used in their Easy2Go chains) is to use an ultra-tough flexible cord system; others (e.g. Thule) use spring loaded tensioners, although these are vulnerable to being jammed by ice.  (Water from melted ice and snow might run back down the wires into the tensioners and refreeze.)  Some argue (reasonably) that there’s no real substitute for stopping again, putting your weight on the tensioning chain, and giving it a good tug
