I don't seem to have any slack in the chain, when I close the latch it seems to take all the slack out. Mind you it is not always easy to do, maybe wrong size chains!!
They are used for tightening up the slack in the chains.

Thats what I thought thanks Brian!!
Some chains fit better than others and you may not need them in some cases.

If the outside clasp lets go, the whole shootin match works to the inside of the tire, and wraps up on your brake lines, axle, etc.
Still a good idea with GT's even tho you're not going 35 MPH. Might just keep you from breaking something.

I used to do the bugie thing all the time, but lately, I resize the chain for a good fit by using use half links to fine tune. Then I let some air out, to get the chains on, & then reinflate. It makes for a tight fit with no slop. I can run much faster, with no chains slapping the fenders.
Yes that way works good,that's how I used to do it when I was clearing my yard with a garden tractor.

They dont do damage to the tires, Usually I leave chains on year round on a few of my Bolens

No bungy cords either. I spend the extra time to work all the slack out.
