Installation and Security with the SpeedLink Mounting System

As with earlier releases in Thule’s product line of universal ski and snowboard carriers, the 92724 is designed to be compatible with virtually any existing roof rack, including all Thule rack systems, round bars and most factory racks. The 92724 takes ease of use and installation even further through its use of the SpeedLink mounting system. The 92724’s two carrier assemblies each have two mounting hardware pieces integrated into their lower edges. This hardware is composed of a rugged plastic bracket with a heavy-duty rubber T-strap hanging down from one end. To mount the carrier assemblies to rack load bars the plastic brackets are rotated from their inline position to a 45-degree angle to the bar. The rubber strap is then wrapped under the load bar with the Tend placed into a pocket on the opposite end of the bracket. This process is repeated on the other three spots where brackets contact load bars. Tightening knobs on the plastic brackets are then turned to secure the carrier assemblies. This hold is further secured with Thule One-Key locks built into to brackets, which secure the carrier and its held contents to the roof rack.

About Thule

Thule was founded in 1942 by the Thulin family, when Eric Thulin, a true lover of the outdoors, put the Thule name on a pike trap he designed and began to sell in Scandinavia. It wasn’t long before he added other practical items to the company’s portfolio. By the 1960s, the company began to concentrate on car-related products, including its first roof rack. The Thulin family sold Thule to the publicly listed company Eldon in 1979, and it has continued to grow both organically and through acquisitions ever since. The Thule Group is a world leader in providing transport solutions for an active life.

Superior Engineering and Design
Thule snow chains are hand-made in Italy and are constructed of durable, hardened Manganese Nickel Alloy Steel. They feature dual-sided D-shaped links that provide exceptional traction and guarantee long product life. These snow chains utilize a patented self-centering and auto-tensioning system which adjusts itself for a perfect fit. Once the chains are wrapped around the tire, the installation process is completed when the vehicle is set in motion. As the wheels turn, the self-centering and auto-tensioning system activates and the chain tightens around the tire. This eliminates the need to exit your vehicle and brave the elements to re-adjust snow chains. For easier installation in the dark or during the day, all attachment points on the chains are color coded. Additionally, each set of Thule tire chains comes with a hard case, installation mat, pair of gloves, and spare links.


CS-10 ensures a solid grip on snow and ice.

To perfectly fit the chain, simply connect the red hook-and-fastener parts and the self-tensioning system will take care of the rest. When you are ready to remove the chain, just pull the red handle and the patented one-hand quick-disconnect system ensures that it pops off quickly and easily. The asymmetrical 10mm diamond pattern chain with icebreaker reinforcements offer you the highest grip on snow and ice. Additionally, the special anti-scratch nylon bumpers protect your investment by ensuring that the chains never actually come in contact with your wheels. Thule CS-10, a perfect combination of design, technology and safety for your winter trips.

How to Choose a Snow Chain that Fits Perfectly
To choose the right snow chain you must follow a few simple criteria. First, check your vehicle’s maintenance or owner’s manual to verify it contains no warnings advising against the fitting of snow chains on your particular vehicle. Once verified, take careful note of the three measurements on the side of the tire. The first number indicates the width, the second gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width) and the third denotes the diameter of the wheel expressed in inches. Then click on the Thule Snow Chain Fitment Guide to choose the most suitable model and size for your vehicle.
