Package contains a PAIR of adjusters.
With the low cost, I suspected incorrectly that it was a single adjuster.
Yes for $5 you do get a pair of adjusters

Small enought to use on a John Deere D140 tractor/snowblower

Does the job, and some tire chains (the cheaper 30 dollar ones) can benefit from using one of these. Why some chains don't call for it doesn't make sense, as there is no tensioner in the cheaper wire cable chains. In fact, my chains which are over 12 years old, actually tell you to go get a pair of tensioner (not included!). Before you use them however, you should do the following:

Take a pair of pliers, and bend the s hook tighter on the rubber side.This will prevent it from falling off.

Pre stretch at home. This is not high quality rubber, but it will do the job. With that said, the elasticity of these aren't at their full capacity until you pre stretch it from its molded shape. You can stretch it by just pulling on it, but unless your very strong, its not worth the effort.

instead, just hold it between your two hands closely together, and just pull. It will have a little give, and you work your way around and stretch it out. Once this is done, you can see that you can stretch the whole thing. You'll thank me later

These tire chain adjusters perform as designed but you'd better eat your wheaties before attempting to install them on your wheels. I can't imagine anybody with limited hand or arm strength being able to accomplish this task. Certainly not as easy as it looks on YouTube. I must say that installing them during the second snow storm was easier.

When I bought the chains I got them without an ADJUSTER. When I finally was heading for the mountains and the real prospect of using them I saw a review. That review said that adjusters where a MUST. I ordered the adjusters before I went and I can tell you that to be safe YOU MUST HAVE ADJUSTERS and these worked as advertized. I am very glad that I bought them.

This was just as effective as the one at Wal-mart, but less expensive.

I have a set of chains and a set of cables for my 2001 Toyota Corolla.
It worked amazingly for both the chains and cables.
I am glad I bought two sets.

I plan to buy two more, since they also worked for my chains on my Chevy Tahoe.

Bought a 26hp Craftsman garden tractor off of Craigslist that came with a dozer blade and chains. Playing around back dragging my gravel driveway and quickly found the chains slip off.

Bought this product hoping they'd fit (they're marketed for passenger car tires) and was delighted to find they work great. Require a fair amount of strength to hook to the chains, but that just means they'll be held tight!

Each purchase is for one pair (two bands). Seeing as how I wanted to go the extra mile and have bands on the outside AND inside of each wheel, I went ahead and bought a second pair.

So far, so good. Working perfectly now!

Only thing that I'd change (and not worth knocking a star off) is having a sixth hook per band. For aesthetic reasons, it's hard to get an even pentagon shape (like in the photo). On an actual tire, it's difficult and they look sloppy and uneven. Having a sixth hook would allow you to line up parallel lines for a clean looking hexagon much easier.

Having said that, you can add your own by bending comparable sizes of mild steel and viola you're done.

I bought these as a cheaper option than my usual heavy duty ones and they work...33 in tires and take some doing to put on the first time but they do the trick in the mud holes in the back 40

Update: Ok, I'm upgrading this to two stars. Read my original review below. Upon further investigation I believe I simply received a defective product. Since my adjuster had already snapped I went through and tried to pull it so it would snap again. This time I really pulled on it hard and it didn't snap!! I looked at where mine broke and it looks like the rubber had a weak spot right there (it looks like a two pronged machine punctured it). So mine broke extremely easily but I don't think this is normal. I'm debating whether I should buy this same one again, or get something different. Anyway, Below is my original review:

I haven't left a one star review before but this chain adjuster/tensioner snapped 5 seconds after opening the package. I gave the adjuster a LIGHT tug and it instantly snapped.

I'm very glad I opened this now, I was tempted to just throw it in my car still in its package. I recommend if you buy these test them immediately, don't wait for snow!

Other notes: Yes, the package does come with two adjusters.

I've already started the return process to Amazon. Amazon is awesome!
