I’ve had a pair of Autosocks stored in my Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van for about a year now. This past November for the first time, I found I needed to put them on the Van to get up and over Vail Pass during an early season heavy, wet snow storm.
The Auto Socks were surprisingly easy to put on the car. I followed the instructions on the packaging, used the packaging to protect my knees from the wet ground (very nice benefit) and simply slipped them over the tires. It was very simple. So simple I felt compelled to continue to look back to make sure they were still on the wheels – and they were!
On this particular day, there were many cars of all shapes and sizes that were struggling with the we heavy snow. It was very slippery and my Sprinter Van never would have made it up the pass without the Autosocks. They provided the traction I needed in a very simple easy to use package. Once I was down the other side of the pass, I simply pulled off the road and just as easily removed the Autosocks.
