Thule did extensive consumer research when developing the Easy-fit tire chains and found that consumers' biggest concerns were that tire chains were difficult and complicated to install, and they didn't like having to lie on the ground by the side of a busy road to put them on, getting dirty in the process. In response to these concerns, Thule engineers made these tire chains the easiest to install of any on the market, just 3 steps from start to finish. Step 1: Take the 2 ends of the rigid arch and open it. Step 2: Lay the chain on the tire, starting from the top, and make sure the arch is completely behind the wheel. Step3: Open out the pedal and push down until you hear it click. Close the pedal, start the engine and drive away. It's that simple! No danger from lying down on a busy road, no need to reach behind the tire and get dirty.
The automatic tensioning system will ensure that the chain stays properly installed and tight on the tire, there's no need to stop and adjust the tension. Besides a simple process, Thule thought of other ways to ease installation, like painting steel sections to keep hands from getting cold. When not needed, the chains can be stored in the included nylon storage bag, but the bag also opens out to form a handy kneeling mat to help keep you clean during installation. The fitting instructions are even printed on the inside of the bag, so they're easily visible during installation.
In their quest to make these tire chains the easiest to install, Thule didn't neglect function - the reason you install tire chains. To make them durable, these chains are constructed from through-hardened manganese nickel alloy steel, and every link is tested for strength. The unique dual-sided D-shaped link design provides superior traction on even the slickest ice and deepest snow. The 9mm links are ideal for vehicles where clearance between the tires and the inside of the fender well and mechanical components is tight. And to protect expensive alloy wheels, anti-scratch nylon buttons are fitted at all contact points and the inner side of the central bar is lined with soft-touch anti-scratch fabric.
The limited 5-year warranty applies to the original purchaser of the product, and warrants the product against manufacturer's defects in materials or workmanship.449.95Brand: Thule Part Number: 04115102 UPC: 091021917781

This is an excellent product. I had some trouble figuring out how to install and needed some help figuring it out. Once I saw how to install, it was simple to put on the car. The only problem I had with the product description was it did not indicate in more simple terms that I needed an extra part. I have a 'girls' bike and do not have the bar that goes across the top from the seat to handlebars. It states it holds a standard bike, I thought I had a standard bike. I had to purchase this part and wished I knew that when I bought the rack. When I discovered the problem, customer service was excellent and prompt. They steered me in the right direction, and I was able to use the rack. It is very sturdy, and I do not have any fear hanging the bike on my Malibu and driving around.Was this review helpful for you?

Rack is very sturdy, does not bounce as all on a 1 1/4" hitch. Assembly was a snap and I like the way the bike fits on it. I still have full access to my hatch with bike on but not when it is in the upright storage position.Was this review helpful for you?

The product is not easy to install. If you have physical strength, it's okay. If not, this is not the rack for you. It seems sturdy, but I was disappointed when one of the bumpers on the rack fell off the second time I used it.Was this review helpful for you?

Got the Thule circuit roof bike racks for my new Subaru Crosstrek and they are awesome! Easy to use as is all Thule equipment, and they work with the crossbars that were factory installed on my car just perfectly! Bikes go everywhere with me!Was this review helpful for you?

Once the rack is installed, it holds bikes securely in place and makes theft difficult. I had some problems installing the rack the first time and the instructions were of marginal help. I could not attach the trunk hooks without opening the trunk, once I attached the hooks it was just a matter of adjusting the cables to achieve the proper fit. The rack's size and weight make it difficult to handle while installing. I did not have any problems with trunk dents reported by some users. Two light weight folks could install it easily. Despite the initial installation problems, I recommend this bike rack for anyone that cannot use the trailer hitch version.Was this review helpful for you?
