Onspot: benefits for everyone

Written by Leonard D'Orlando,

The wait is over and the Onspot automatic tire chain system has arrived.  Soon traction on snow and ice will be as simple as flipping a dashboard mounted switch.  Gone are the days of having to get out in inclement weather and manually “throw iron”.  This is a tremendous benefit for any driver, but what about the mechanic?

It all starts with the measurements. Here at Onspot we not only focus on what it means for the driver, but also the one performing the installation as well.  Whether the system is installed at the OEM, dealer, or end user level we strive to ensure the installation is as easy as it is to use the system.  It all starts with the vehicle details and accurate measurements.  On average gathering this this data is a process that takes around ten minutes and provides us with all the critical information needed to create a system that is tailored to the customer’s specific chassis.  The mounting brackets for the system are custom bent, pressed, and formed based on the measurements obtained.  This step cannot be under stated and one cannot assume that multiple chassis that look identical are “sister chassis”.  Accurate information at the onset leads to an easier install in the end.     

Installation day arrives and the set(s) are ready to be installed.  When unboxing the Onspot system the installer should confirm receipt of all the necessary parts.  Although there are exceptions a typical chain system for an air equipped vehicle delivers in two boxes: one box containing the chain system and the other mounting brackets and hardware.  Once all the parts are laid out and accounted for it is highly recommended to read through the instructions completely before starting any of the install.  Automatic tire chains are all we do so if there are ever any questions or concerns during an installation our knowledgeable service and sales staff can always be contacted.
