A short video showing how to fit snow chains to tyres is essential viewing for motorists who will be loading up their cars and driving off for a European skiing holiday during the Christmas and New Year holidays.
The film, which is available to view on the www.skinets.com website, gives a step-by-step guide to making sure your tyres have better grip on snow and ice covered roads.
According to the site: “With snow forecast this week and hundreds of holiday makers expected to drive out to the Alps for Christmas and New Year it seems a prudent time to have a look at how to fit snow chains to your car.
“Snow chains offer a cheap, albeit temporary, alternative to snow tyres and can be fitted without the help of a mechanic or garage. Despite this they can be a confusing, tangled mess of knotted metal that leads not to controlled driving in the snow but to half an hour of swearing and cold, bleeding hands.
“Avoid any confusion at the road side and drive safely up to your chosen resort after watching this video from www.skinets.com on how to fit snow chains to your car.”
