Video Transcript for Hopkins GripTrax Traction Plates Review

Hey guys, today we're going to take a look at Hopkins GripTrax Traction Plates. Now these are going to be a great tool to keep in your vehicle, it's going to get you out of any sticky situations. Whether you're stuck in the snow, mud, sand, anything like that. We're going to take a closer look at them and then we'll take them outside and show you how to use them.Now that we're in close, we can see all of these raised ridges that are on this wedge right here, that's going to help start your tire by getting the grip you need to get onto the traction plate. And then we have the nice raised ridges and valleys that are going to help get all of the elements accumulated on your tire off and they can drain out through all of those holes. We're also going to have these teeth that are on one side of the plates.

Those are, again, going to help with traction on your tire, so your tire has something to grip while it's pulling itself out.Now here in the back side we'll take another close look. We see that we have those teeth double-sided all the way around. That's because the plate needs to have traction as well, it needs to be stuck on the ground. And we can see the back side of the wedge also has those pointed teeth that are going to help keep the plate in place while you're trying to get unstuck. And also, all of these holes are going to make the traction plate a lot easier to clean.

You can just take a hose to it or a power washer or anything like that. Once they've dried, just put them back in your car and they're ready for use the next time.Now you see I've gotten my car stuck. I just can't get myself out of this with no other traction. And you see that my tires just can't get any traction in this muddy and snowy field. But, don't worry, just grab the traction plates and we'll get to work.

So all we're going to do, just take the wedge part and put it under the front part of our tire. We just want to get it nice and snug under there. Just kind of work it's way in, want to just let it be. Now we're going to get back in our car and see if it can pull us out. Now we're back in our vehicle, we'll put it in drive and just take it slow, let the traction plate do it's job.

Well we're not stuck anymore, so now we can grab our traction plate and get back on the road. And that'll do it for a look at Hopkins GripTrax Traction Plates.

Once again, I purchased a product from etrailer for an "off label" use. In this case, I bought the auto traction mats to be used in the making of homemade snowshoes! They can easily be bent into a snowshoe shape using a bit of heat, and you can attach bindings to the perforations to hold onto your boots. Works just as well or better than commercial snowshoes, and the price (especially from etrailer!) can't be beat.

eTrailer carried this excellent product and sold it at a very fair price while managing to ship it promptly and very well packaged. The traction plates will come in handy this winter to help my snowblower equipped tractor climb the 12 degree slope of my 250 foot driveway.

I bought these after having a vehicle stuck in the snow. I haven’t had an opportunity to use them yet. They are just a little short , yet easier to stow than longer ones. So I think they are just about the optimum for any non 4 wheel drive.

Using this product for traction on gravel. With two of them I'm able to change direction as I walk the TVXL25 Trailer Dolly up a slight incline. Width and length is ideal. Without this product the dolly wheels just spin in the gravel. Great fix at a great price.

I bought two sets of these, one set for each car. Like snow chains, it is alway a blessing not to have to use them. That said, they are still in the car with the snow chains.

Already had a pair for myself and was looking for a pair for my sisters. Shipping was super fast and price was cheaper than what i paid two years ago. My sisters love them. I hope we don't need them this year. I sure did last year. I have a 2014 Explorer (not AWD) and it was a breeze getting my truck out of the snow. They are very durable.

Used them one time they bent and broke. Ended up in the next trash can I went by.

Exactly as described. Lots easier then getting out and putting chains on when only a little traction will do it. Highly recommend.

Bought and put somewhere in the basement. Didn't try them out, because last year was not that much of the snow.

Best bang for your buck for a small car. At these prices you'd be crazy not to buy 2 sets...also good to have 2 sets because they are small.
