How do Snow Socks work?
Snow socks work by adding extra traction to your tyres when you drive on ice and snow. They are super strong, textile socks that fit easily to the drive wheels of your car. They’re reuseable and if used correctly they should last up to 4 winters.
What are the benefits?
As the snow socks are made from a heavy-duty technical fabric, they are unlike typical snow chains in that they do not have any metal parts. Therefore, the amount of friction generated between the fabric and the snow is far greater than the friction generated between your regular tyres and the snow. This results in there being far better traction on the road when you are driving. They are fully TUV-approved and tested (German equivalent of the MoT test).
How do they fit?
Snow socks come in pairs & you can fit them very easily to the drive wheels of your car. Think of them as similar to a fitted bed sheet, in that they have an elasticated band on the inside edge which you slip over the top of your tyre, then down over the rest of your tyre as far as it can go. Then, simply roll your car forward about a metre and pull the rest of the sock up over the top of the tyre. It then centres itself after about 100 metres.
When & where should they be used?
It is best to keep snow socks in the boot of your car ready for the unpredictable winter weather. They are designed to be used on snow and ice and are the perfect solution to get you home, to work, do the school run or to that all important meeting, on time and safely. They are also perfect for use on steep hills, or any untreated roads. You should not use them on any non-gritted or clear roads, and they should be removed as soon as you reach one.
