Not sure how long the chains are that you are cutting down but if you have many cross links left over, put the cross links in between the current ' 4 link'. Cross chains every 2 links will help the ride and prove chains on the ground all the time.
In my world, there is no way I could get around without chain traction. Packed snow or ice combined with inclined... No matter what weight you add, chains bite better then rubber.

Mr. White could you give me more info on that chain tool.
Titan Chain Repair Pliers for Heavy Truck Snow Tire Chains

search that phrase or something similar

there's a couple different lengths

I personally like more mechanical advantage than less

Are you telling me to just over lap. Then connect. (No Cutting).
With tire chain pliers you can release the cross links (the ones going over the tires) from the rail (the ones going around the tires)

Then you can reattach them, like Tkhoffam said, to the up right link in between.

This will provide better traction and smooth the ride

Tire chains are often setup with an every 4th pattern, so 3 links in between Crosslinks

The 2nd or middle, link has the same orientation as the factory assembled Crosslinks

Keeping chains straight decreases fit issues
