The monodeprotonated Schiff base ligand in the title compound, [Sn(CH3)(C14H19N4S)Cl2], N,N′,S-chelates to the Sn atom, which is six-coordinated in an octahedral environment. The three coordinating atoms along with the methyl C atom comprise a square plane, above and below which are positioned the Cl atoms. The amino group is a hydrogen-bond donor to a Cl atom of an adjacent molecule, the hydrogen bond giving rise to a helical chain extending parallel to .
