only useful when there is snow...I know that sounds obvious...but used in anything other than deep snow (not slush, icy roads, wet roads) you will destroy your tyres in no time and become a hazard on the road...it'll be like driving on steel rims...so be wary, but if you live in Northumberland or Scotland...go for it...

pointless in this country

Royals have you seen the weather lately?

OH has been issued with AutoSocks through his employer - they've been a godsend the last few days as he keeps getting stuck on peoples drives!

If you get stuck on your icy drive and dont have any rock salt, try cat litter. Works a treat.

Don't to forget to check with your car insurance company before using these as I know of several people who have had their policies invalidated by using them.

Having looked at the Autosocks website, the fitting instructions say:
Fit AutoSock to the driving wheels of the car, starting at the top of the tyre and working downwards. Move the vehicle approximately 1 metre and put the remainder
.. and there's the problem. If you're already stuck, the "move the vehicle ...." bit makes it much harder. Otherwise, nice idea

If you can't move your vehicle just one metre, then you decerve to be stuck

You obviously live on a different planet where you don't get a foot of snow overnight and then the snowplough packs it feet higher against the outside of your car and into the gaps between cars! voted hot!

Just buy a helicopter instead. Problem solved.

I live down a private lane in Derbyshire with 2ft of snow and I can move my car 1m to fit some snow chains with a bit of effort

I've also helped dig out a few other cars in the village who have been stuck in situ....so if people can't be bothered to do a few minutes shovel work in order to move a few metres to get clear or fit snow chains then they deserve to be stuck.

...and let's say they are elderly or disabled. Still 'deserve it', do they?

or don't own a shovel?

or don't have snow chains?

or can't afford snow chains?

the list is endless, if you care to think about it. It's called being thoughtful, and is imbued with positive meaning.

now, where is my helicopter?

Not really a problem at all. You only need to move the vehicle one metre to fit the sock to the part of the tyre that is on the ground. If your car is stuck, just spin the wheel very slightly on the spot (you could use your scissor jack to do this quite easily and quickly).

Might sound a hassle, but if you're stuck and need to get somewhere is only a 5 min job each side.

Sounds like someone is a little wounded? Well if you want to give it, but can't take it, I say you deserve to be struck :-)

Where is that little whistling emoticon when you need it? Or one that shows you grabbing your coat and disappearing? I'm constrained by this new range

I have auto socks and once you have fitted them either drive forwards or backwards (depending on slope ) and as the tyre spins it starts to grip once the sock touches the floor.easy easy really.I live at the top of a hill and all the neighbours have had to leave their cars at the bottom

I live in North Wales and my family has 6 cars - last week, just before the snow I bought 4 pairs of Snow Socks, manufacturer Snow Gecko, just in case. Then the snow came, 2 of my sons tried them and said they were effective, easy to fit and remove, so much I'm thinking of buying another 2 pairs for the 2 cars without snow socks. They cost £45 a pair, are very strong and won't cause damage like chains can.
