    "baby it" will never happen with him. Chaining it own may well work. Anything to specifically do/not do?

    Changeing them should not be that bad in a driveway about an hour. But when something goes wrong on the trail you will have to do a lot of thinking. At least take some new ones with you in case you have to do it on the trail.

    Sounds better than the only suggestion that has been made other than here - bailing wire twisted with a power drill to secure it.
