Winter hits quickly. Sometimes Winter arrives within minutes and it can leave you stranded somewhere you do not want to be. You could be driving down a road and find that you can no longer drive down it because it has become too slick or too snowy. It is in these times that you want to be prepared and one fo the best ways to be prepared is to have an AutoSock at your disposal.
A Prominent Feature of AutoSocks
One of the main advantages of having an AutoSocks is the pure speed of installation and removal as well. We have all struggled with chains and their directions. Sometimes we have even struggled with the chains themselves because they are tangled in a way that makes it hard to use them. Chains can be a giant hassle. If you have the option of using something else then you might want to consider it. AutoSocks will be that alternative that you have been searching the internet to find. All you have to do to use an AutoSock is to slip the sock over your tires and then drive away. It is literally that simple. What do you do about the area where the tire contacts the ground? You drive back and then slip the sock over that area. You do the reverse to take the sock off your car. It is literally that simple. See the pictures below to see how that would look.
AutoSocks also tend to be lighter than other traction devices. If you are looking at a weight restriction on your travels then you probably want an AutoSock on your side. They take up roughly the same amount of room but tend to weigh less. A good feature if you are hauling equipment in a trailer. We all want to avoid trailer sway and an AutoSock just might help you do that quickly and easily.
A Few Things to Keep In Mind
There are a few things you want to keep in mind when using AutoSocks, however. The first thing you need to realize is that the AutoSock can freeze to your wheels if left on overnight. The best thing to do is to remove the AutoSocks when you are not driving. If you store them in a place where they can dry then you will not have a build up of ice on your traction device. Obviously, getting a sheet of ice on your wheels is a bad thing because the road will be even slicker than it was before. Always remove your AutoSock overnight just as a precaution so that you do not experience the icing problem.
Another big thing to keep in mind is that you should not drive over 30 mph in these AutoSocks. You should drive even slower if you are driving a commercial vehicle. In fact, the company says commercial vehicles should not exceed 20 mph while using this product. If you go over these limits then you run the risk of damaging your AutoSocks and wearing them out much quick than if you had followed the instructions printed on the packaging.
