Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (39 Customer Reviews)

Get some extra traction between your vehicle's tires and the ground with these easy-to-use, easy-to-store traction pads. Perfect when you're stuck in snow, mud or sand.

I have not used these in the snow yet , but I have a different brand set that has a much lower “nose” profile that allows the traction pad to be pushed under the tire as far as possible when the tires are already spinning. On these pads (again I have yet to actually use them) I wonder how easily they will go under the tire so that the vehicle can begin to grip them.


Comments
The traction plate just needs to be snug against the front of whichever tire is stuck. If you take it slow, it should work just fine. Please watch this attached video for details:

These got my car unstuck from melty snow and mud! I rocked it in reverse, neutral, reverse neutral,until i could get onto Trax Plates. I suggest step lightly on gas or you'll scrape up tires. When I eased onto gas pedal, tires came up and over these beauties!! I was using my friend's, so I ordered these for myself. A++




by:

Light weight, simple to use, good winter driving insurance.




by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

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.




by:

Ordering from etrailer was easy, quick, and all products perfectly fit the description. Will order from them again if needed. Thank you!




by:

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




by:

Haven’t used these yet, but I’m happy with my purchase through etrailer.




by:

Purchased these traction devices for an upcoming winter travel trip to Lake Tahoe. Hope I don’t have to use them - but just in case.




by:

Got me out of a snow drift while pulling a trailer.




by:

I Have not used this product yet, but looks to be of a good quality and design. Priced very reasonable.
I will order form this company again!




by:

Great product I used these to get a SUV out of mud worked !!!
So ordered two more so I will have one for each wheel




by:

thank you for upgrading my shipment it was here in 2 days. I gave 1 set to my granddaughter shes a new driver. I will let you no when we use them. Thanks again




by:

Looking forward to it helping this wint er.




by:

Products are top qualify, and priced unbelievable low




by:

I have used these twice to get my van unstuck. The worked both times although spinning tire melted a portion of the pad. They are useful and I would recommended them.




by:

Smaller than expected.




by:

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




by:

GREAT quality, useful tool........

by:

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.




by:

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