The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C12H12ClNOS, contains three independent molecules, with the thiochroman ring adopting a sofa conformation in each one. The crystal structure features C-HO interactions; one of the O atoms accepts three such bonds. Together, the hydrogen bonds give rise to a molecular tape propagating in .
