Welcome to Laclede Chain’s brand new company blog – thanks for checking us out!  We look forward to sharing more of Laclede’s story here, including what makes our chain products unique and better.  We’ll be talking about the different types of tire chains, usage tips and a host of other topics with some weather chat along the way.

With some of the first snowflakes of the season arriving to the upper elevations of the Pacific Northwest and parts of the Rockies this week it’s a reminder that Old Man Winter can’t be too far off.  Fall is a great time to review or put together a winter safety car kit.  Here are some useful tips from the Washington State Department of Transportation:


Like a lot of things, when it comes to installing tire chains practice can make perfect, or at least almost perfect.  Whether you are a winter recreationalist, commercial truck driver or anyone with a set of snow chains, fall is an ideal time to inspect your chains and practice the installation process a few times.  Laclede continues to add to our library of tire chain installation videos so click here for a listing of video tutorials for many of our products as well as printable text instructions.
