OnSpot Right Side Replacement Chain Plate-Large
The OnSpot Right Side Replacement Chain Plate-Large is a component of the OnSpot automatic tire chain system. This system allows drivers to engage and disengage tire chains with a flip of a switch from the driver’s seat, providing instant traction on slippery roads without having to stop and manually install chains.
The right side replacement chain plate is specifically designed for the large size chain system and is mounted on the right side of the vehicle. This plate is responsible for holding the chains in place when they are not in use and then releasing them when the system is activated. Over time, chain plates may wear out or become damaged, requiring replacement to maintain proper function.
To replace the right side chain plate on a large OnSpot system, follow these steps:
- Park the vehicle on a level surface and engage the parking brake.
- Turn off the vehicle’s engine and ensure the OnSpot system is disengaged.
- Locate the right side chain plate on the exterior of the vehicle near the rear wheels.
- Use the appropriate tools (usually a socket wrench and/or pliers) to remove the fasteners holding the chain plate in place.
- Carefully remove the old chain plate, making sure not to damage the chain or other components.
- Position the new right side replacement chain plate in the same location as the old one, making sure it is oriented correctly and matches the left side chain plate.
- Attach the new chain plate using the original fasteners or supplied replacement fasteners.
- Ensure that the chain plate is securely fastened and the chains are properly aligned.
- Test the OnSpot system to confirm that the new chain plate is functioning correctly and the chains are engaging and disengaging as intended.
Remember to consult the OnSpot user manual for specific instructions and safety guidelines regarding the maintenance and replacement of components. If you are unsure about any step in the process or need assistance, contact an authorized OnSpot service provider for help.
OnSpot Tire Chains is a company that specializes in manufacturing and distributing automatic tire chain systems for various types of vehicles, including trucks, buses, and emergency vehicles. The company was founded in the 1970s in Sweden and has since expanded its operations globally. OnSpot Tire Chains has become an industry leader by providing innovative and reliable traction solutions for drivers who face challenging road conditions, such as ice, snow, and mud.
The flagship product of OnSpot Tire Chains is their automatic tire chain system. This system allows drivers to engage and disengage tire chains with the simple flip of a switch from the comfort of the driver’s seat. This feature eliminates the need to stop the vehicle and manually install chains, saving time and reducing the risk of accidents and injuries associated with traditional tire chain installation.
The OnSpot automatic tire chain system consists of several key components, including:
- Chain Wheel: The chain wheel houses the chains and rotates when the system is engaged, causing the chains to swing out and make contact with the tire, providing increased traction.
- Chain Plates: These plates hold the chains in place when they are not in use and release them when the system is activated.
- Air Cylinder: The air cylinder activates the chain wheel, pushing it towards the tire when the system is engaged.
- Control Switch: The control switch, located in the driver’s cab, allows the driver to easily engage and disengage the system as needed.
