It could hardly be easier!

  1. Simply park your vehicle and engage the handbrake. The vehicle should not be on a slope during fitting.
  2. AutoSock should then be fitted to your wheels, over the tires. Use the accompanying gloves, and begin mounting from the top of the tire and downwards.
  3. Stretch the elastic band over the top of the tire, so that the band is on the inner side of the tire. Then pull the crossing strap in order to adjust the AutoSock into correct position; as far down as possible until the front panel becomes centered.
  4. Once in the proper position, with only the lower part not over the tire, move the vehicle approx. 1m and pull the remainder into position. The AutoSock will automatically self-center when you start driving.

AutoSock should only be used on ice and snow, and it should be removed immediately once the conditions no longer require it to be used. You should also remove our traction device when your vehicle is parked.

When starting up, make sure no one is standing behind your vehicle, as stones and lumps of ice, etc. could be thrown backward with great force.

Always take extra caution and care when both fitting and driving with your AutoSocks!
