Kinedyne Broadens Grip Link Family with 7- and 8-Millimeter Heavy-Duty Stud Tire Chains for Off-Road Applications - 12/20/18

 BRANCHBURG, N.J., USA (Dec. 20, 2018) — Kinedyne LLC, a world-leading designer, 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-millimeter heavy-duty stud tire chains are designed exclusively for off-road use.

Grip Link Brand Tire Chains already come in 7-millimeter steel wire v-bar and 7-millimeter steel wire square link designs for highway use. The new 7- and 8-millimeter heavy-duty stud versions give users more flexibility and two lightweight alternatives. While 9-millimeter steel wire heavy- duty stud Grip Link Tire Chains have been discontinued, they are still available while supplies last.

“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-millimeter heavy-duty stud chains come with 14 cross-links providing superior tractive characteristics.

The new 7- and 8-millimeter 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.”

All Grip Link Tire Chains come in retail display-ready, reusable, easy-to-carry, “Easy Store” pails. The tough, durable pails each feature detailed installation instructions in both English and French.

Repair kits are available for every Grip Link Tire Chain part number. Tire chain repair pliers, part number 80122, are also available.
