AutoSock snow socks

AutoSock are hardwearing high-tech textile ‘snow socks’ that you pull over the driving wheels of vehicles that need extra grip in snow and ice.

Probably the most difficult part of the operation is remembering that they're there!

AutoSock provides an ideal "Get me Home" or "Get me to that meeting" solution - but only if you keep a set in the car! Although developed in Norway, they're particularly appropriate for the UK, where we experience sudden and sporadic snow fall, usually short lasting, but so often the cause of massive disruption and inconvenience while it lasts.

Although it is important to emphasise that AutoSock are not a substitute for winter tyres, the use of winter tyres is sometimes difficult to justify if UK snowfall is only occasional and short lived. The good news for AutoSock is that tests show AutoSock to be more effective than winter tyres when used on snow, including hill starts, braking and cornering. These tests used AutoSock on winter tyres, but it is our experience that they also make an extraordinary difference when used on summer tyres.

Beware of 'cheap' snow sock offers

Subscribers to voucher / deal sites will be aware of a number of very cheap offers for car snow socks. Please be aware that none of these sites are offering genuine AutoSock, even if the words and / or images have been taken from official AutoSock sites.

There is also real concern about the quality of the numerous 'knock off' and counterfeit products available in the UK and Irish markets at this time, and the potential safety implications of using such copies

AutoSock in the news!

GripTech® - Unique Grip Technology

GripTech® is the heart of the knowledge embodied in AutoSock® on how to improve a tire's grip on snow and ice. When we want to achieve friction in such a situation we need to understand how to solve the problem of a slippery layer of water between the tire and snow and ice.

Copiers - Beware of cheap imitations!

There are other car socks on the market this season, some of them produced by large snow chain manufacturers who should know better.  AutoSock has invested huge sums in the research and development of its products, over many years, and is taking all these copiers to court for breach of patents.  In every case AutoSock is winning the argument... continued

Tips for safe fitting, use and removal

FITTING: It could hardly be simpler. Stop the vehicle and apply the handbrake. Fit AutoSock to the driving wheels of the car, starting at the top of the tyre and working downwards. Move the vehicle approximately 1 metre and put the remainder of each 'Sock' into position - see the "movie" sequence above. The AutoSock will automatically self-centre when you start driving.

USE: There's NO need to turn off any electronic traction and stability devices, e.g. ETS, ASR, ESP, DSC. Drive off gently, avoiding wheel spin. Extreme acceleration and braking could damage the product.

REMOVAL: Take AutoSock off the wheels, shake off any snow, and put them back in their storage pouch pending washing or further use.
