Don't be snappy! I lay mine out lengthwise, then fold in half, then in half again. When I hang these on the rack, I put two chains on each hook. I could post a picture, but it will look like chains on a chain rack....

I have chains and cables. My chains are folded twice then the cables are circled above.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Not snappin' at you Packrat. Errol obviously did not read my post and replied about whether to chain up or not, which was not even the question. But, he did give a great non answer to the question. You answered my question perfectly. Thank you!

Not a joke. I will go with chains 15 miles to get over Donner vice wait for possibly days, or reroute many, many miles. Never wrote that is what anyone must do. Does not matter to me what you do.

I'm with PackRat.

Better to chain for a short distance than wait days. Now Rainy as funny as you think ur first answer to Tractor Man was, it wasn't helpful. Now you are usually very helpful. So how much sugar have you had today?

You will need them so infrequent with Swift. They don't want you driving in it (snow), if possible.

I lay mine out straight and hang the first cross chain on the rack. Then I pull up and hang every other cross chain. Also have 2 chains on each rack.

Only once have I ever pulled one off the rack. Yesterday picking up a trailer in a frozen lot. All 4 tractor tires were just spinning. I pulled one chain off and layed it under my left front drive tire. It sucked the chain under and provided enough traction to pull the trailer out.

Raptor, please go back and read my original post. It was not a question about chaining up at all. It was about storing chains on the chain rack. I am well aware of Swifts chaining policy.

Rainy, you didn't offend me at all. It seems that Raptor chided you for being mean and on a sugar high. You may continue to joke and jab at will.
