SnowGecko snow socks, XL, one pair

£32.50
RRP: £64.95
Code: ASGXL

Worried about driving on ice or snow?

SnowGecko, made by AutoSock, are super-strong textile socks which you slip over the driving wheels to provide the grip you need on ice and snow. They’re reusable, take up minimal storage space, and in many circumstances work better than winter tyres or snow chains.



SnowGecko have the same white road contact fabric as AutoSock, but a royal blue side mesh, and no straps. This XL size comes in a reusable waterproof bag.

SnowGecko is AutoSock's subsidiary brand, widely sold in European supermarkets in parallel to the main AutoSock brand. They are essentially the same as AutoSock - the contact surface is made of the same specially developed high tech and hard wearing material - except that they don't have the cross straps, and are therefore slightly slower to remove from the tyres. (Get hold of them below the front wing.)

They are TÜV and ÖNORM approved and are a very worthy alternative to AutoSock, at a cheaper price.

AutoSock were launched in Norway in 2002 after a long period of testing, evaluation and improvement. Sales have grown exponentially, with well over two million pairs now sold worldwide, mostly on recommendation. When you've had the opportunity to test them for real you'll soon realise why. Most people are not only surprised but astonished at the difference they make to general traction, cornering, and braking.

"This cheap alternative to snowchains or to winter tyres is staggeringly easy to fit... I used them while driving in the French Alps last week and can confirm they are absolutely superb." (Nat Barnes, AA Motoring Writer of the Year)

AutoSock are also supplied as Original Equipment to many car manufacturers, including Bentley, BMW, Fiat, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lexus, Mazda, Mitubishi, Nissan, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Mercedes-Benz, Subaru, Toyota, and VW Group.

The bottom line is that SnowGecko will provide a massive boost in all round confidence when driving on ice and snow, and hopefully "Get you home" or to wherever you're going, but don't overcook it, i.e. you should always drive with particular care in wintry conditions.

There's only one possible way to fit SnowGecko, and no practice is required.

Please note that SnowGecko will wear out with use, and that worn out SnowGecko are not a guarantee issue! They'll get you moving and keep you moving - see the "Driving with AutoSock" page (one of the tabs above) for more information.

Please test them at the first good opportunity, and then pass the word!

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, if the order is placed before the cut-off time (see above). Some will arrive on the second working day if there has been a "split-delivery". So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
