In the title compound, (C28H43N2)[SnCl3], two pairs of molecular species are present in the asymmetric unit. The employed α-diimine opens up, forming a highly asymmetric ammonium that has its protons at one of the N atoms [N—C= 1.264 (4) and 1.516 (4) Å]. One of the C=N double bonds was oxidized to C—N, which is consistent with the bond length of 1.516 (4) Å. Meanwhile SnIV was reduced to SnII. The (SnCl)3
− anion is trigonal–pyramidal. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked by C—H⋯Cl, N—H⋯Cl, N—H⋯N and C—H⋯N bonds. The crystal studied was twinned by pseudo-merohedry.
