Traction Device Now Covers Wide Base Single Tires

| November 30, 2016


AutoSock, a provider of an Alternative Traction Device (ATD) for passenger and commercial vehicles, has announced its product lines now cover several wide base single tires. 

The patented textile cover ATD is available from McGee Company, the U.S. distributor of AutoSock products for Class 3-8 medium- and heavy-duty trucks.

Offered in a range of sizes for U.S. and Canadian motor carriers, AutoSock is a legal and cost effective alternative to chains when traction devices are required, and can be used in states that have no specific device exclusions when chain requirements are in effect. It is the only named approved ATD in Washington and Colorado and its use has been granted in British Columbia.

According to the company, AutoSock is easy to store inside a cab or tool compartment and can be installed in five to eight minutes per vehicle, minimizing a driver’s exposure to weather and traffic. At less than 5 lbs per pair, it is designed to  provide a significant weight savings compared to a 50-lb set of chains.
