Advice Regarding Ice Cleats for Car Dealerships

Important Things to Consider When Buying Ice Cleats for Automobile Dealerships

Automobile Dealer Lot in Winter

Car dealerships are looking for ice cleats that you can

  • get secure, instant traction in all slippery winter conditions;
  • be safely worn while you're driving; and
  • lastly, you can wear inside the dealership service areas and showrooms without damaging floors or being a slip and fall hazard.
No single ice cleat is best for
  • all the employees at a Car Dealership; and
  • even the same job descriptions at all Car Dealerships.

Here's why. The best ice cleats depends upon

  • the type of indoor floor your employees will be walking on;
  • balancing the risk of accidents and injuries resulting from ice cleats obstructing movement between pedals and injuries resulting from slipping on ice (See Caveats About Ice Cleats and Driving below); and
  • lastly, potential damage to the car pedals and interior.

Caveats About the Best Ice Cleats Car Salesmen and Service Personnel

It's the manufacturer's opinion that the ice cleats appearing on this page are safe to wear while driving. I have experience with the recommended ice cleats and agree that, in my opinion, these ice cleats are safe to wear while driving. But your Safety Manager must make that call.

Some companies feel that the risk of wearing any full-sole shoe attachment outweighs the risk of personal injury to the driver. Companies that restrict full-sole ice cleats use heel-only ice cleats. You'll find both full-sole and heel-only ice cleats below.

Common sense tells you that heel-only ice cleats provide far less protection from injuries on the ice than full-sole ice cleats. However, heel-only ice cleats afford far better protection from falls than any rubber or leather sole footwear regardless of the tread material or design.

Why Traditional Ice Cleats are Impractical for Automotive Retailing

Greeters, lot porters, salesmen, shuttle drivers, and service technicians are constantly going in and out of doors. But here's the problem. They have to remove regular ice cleats every time they go indoors because the ice cleats will damage floors or be very slippery on hard, smooth surfaces. Spikeless ice cleats with wound steel coils are the worst for being a slip and fall hazard on hard, smooth indoors floors.
Then they have to put their ice cleats back on when you go back outside. It's impractical! Even if you can get employees to comply and endure the inconvenience, productivity and efficiency are severely affected.

Helpful Questions About the Best Ice Cleats for Driving

How do you decide which ice cleats are safe to wear while driving?

Here are the things I personally consider.

  • The straps must hug the footwear close enough so that they do not impede movement between the pedals, especially in an emergency.
  • The studs should not penetrate the rubber on the pedals, which would, if they did, again impede moving between the pedals.
  • The last, and in my mind, a less important consideration, is that the studs do not tear-up the rubber on the pedals.

The absolute safest ice cleats to wear while driving is heel-only ice cleats because there are no straps to get hung up, and there are no studs on the forefoot to stick on to the pedals. The obvious downside is that heel-only ice cleats are less effective and also force you to walk flat-footed to keep the studs contacting the ice. The final decision is really up to the individual or company safety manager.

Winter Walking ICE BEAST LOW-PRO Features

ICE BEAST LOW-PRO Ice Cleats Closeup
  • Twenty Eight well distributed tungsten carbide studs.
  • TRANSITIONAL TRACTION - ICE BEAST LOW-PRO are safe to wear on most indoor floors because the 1mm studs minimally protrude beyond the tread. Therefore, both the studs and the tread make contact with the surface.
  • ICE BEAST LOW-PRO are safe to wear while you're driving.
  • Aggressive studs quickly penetrate the coldest, densest ice where less aggressive studs and spikeless ice cleats with wound steel coils fail.
  • Tungsten carbide studs are far more durable than the carbon steel studs found on most competing products.
  • The stud distribution guarantees that at least one aggressive stud will likely be in contact with the ground no matter how uneven the surface.
  • The patented heel spikes are crucial because your heel is the first thing to strike the ground when you take a normal step. Heel spikes allow you to walk naturally. Many ice and snow traction devices force you to walk more flat-footed. Because walking flat-footed is not normal, you tend to forget. And one misplaced step can cause you to slip and fall.
  • Spikes are not replaceable. But the mounting mechanism required with replaceable spikes makes them thicker and can cause discomfort for some people... like standing on marbles... especially over long periods of time. Permanently molded-in spikes are more secure therefor eliminating one more potential point of failure.
  • Spikes at Front and Heel Spikes allow you to walk naturally. There are no special skills to learn.
  • Aggressive, Self-Cleaning Treads provide traction in deep snow and slush while assuring studs stay in contact with icy surfaces.
  • Versatile because Winter Walking ICE BEAST LOW-PRO Ice Cleats
    • fit over all types of shoes and boots;
    • provide traction in all slippery winter conditions; and
    • are safe to wear while driving.
  • Patented Open Design 
    • stays securely on footwear, and
    • is lightweight & compact.
  • Strong Straps and several exclusive patented features keep ICE BEAST securely on footwear and properly aligned.
  • Patented Dual Pull Tabs and a Proprietary Strap Material make ICE BEAST Ice Cleats easy to put on and take off even at extremely low temperatures.
  • Bright Orange Color facilitates compliance monitoring.

Heel-Only Ice Cleats Are the Safest to Wear While Driving

Crucial Things to Consider About Heel Ice Cleats

I always recommend full-sole ice cleats whenever Company Policy doesn't prohibit their use while driving. Every stud must be effective on both full-sole and heel-only ice cleats. However, aggressive, effective studs are more crucial on heel-only ice cleats because you depend upon far fewer spikes to gain traction.
Therefore, choose Winter Walking HEEL-GRIPS™ with 26 2mm tungsten carbide studs if you're not constantly going in and out of doors. That's because you have to remove HEEL-GRIPS before going indoors because of the longer spikes will damage interior floors and are slippery on smooth, hard surfaces.

Choose Winter Walking LOW-PRO HEEL™ with 26 1mm tungsten carbide studs if you're constantly going in and out of doors because they're safe to wear on most interior floors.

LOW-PRO HEEL Ice Cleats Features

LOW-PRO Heel Ice Cleats
  • reduce slips and falls on ice, snow, packed snow and black ice; and
  • are low cost, compact, lightweight and fit all types of shoes and boots.
You use strap-on heel cleats when full size ice cleats are not an option. This would include situations whereby limiting the cleats to the heel section of shoes or boots
  • insures compliance with company safety directives prohibiting wearing anything on footwear that might somehow inhibit operating foot controls while driving;
  • fully exposes the defined heel on shoes and boots to make climbing ladders safer; and
  • lastly, reduces the risk of slipping off foot rests while operating equipment, snowmobiles, ATVs, and the pedals while biking on snow and ice.

Use LOW-PRO HEEL cleats with Transitional Traction if you're constantly driving and going in and out of doors. More aggressive heel-only ice cleats are not practical under these circumstances because you must remove them every time you go indoors. You must remove aggressive ice cleats because they'll damage the floor or be slippery on smooth, hard surfaces.

Use HEEL-GRIPS Ice Cleats if you're constantly driving and not frequently going indoors. The reason that I recommend HEEL-GRIPS in this situation is because they have 10 2mm Tungsten Carbide Studs for better traction.

Lastly, if you're constantly driving and going in and out of doors and not restricted from wearing full-sole ice cleats, I recommend Winter Walking LOW-PRO Ice Cleats with Transitional Traction.

Strap-on heel ice cleats serve double duty.

Heel-only ice cleats

  • prevent the heel from slipping; and
  • also, have to provide sufficient traction to prevent your footwear from twisting, especially on uneven ice.

You'll appreciate the professional quality features Winter Walking has incorporated into LOW-PRO HEEL® Ice Cleats. It's the culmination of over 40 years of experience in manufacturing industry-leading professional ice cleats. LOW-PRO HEEL Ice Cleats stand out from the competition. You'll get the best possible traction from a heel-only ice cleat because of

  • there are 14 Well-Distributed 1mm Tungsten Carbide Studs... seven on each Heel Grip;
  • Tungsten Carbide Studs are the hardest and most durable far exceeding the life of carbon steel studs found in most competing products;
  • the Stud Design assures that they will remain equally aggressive and effective throughout the life of your LOW-PRO HEEL Cleats.
  • Well-Positioned Studs assure the maximum number of studs will make contact on uneven ice;
  • studs are molded in to ensure maximum reliability and durability;
  • an Aggressive, Self-Cleaning Tread ensures better traction in deep snow and that studs will make contact with ice;
  • Replaceable Straps easily and quickly adjust for use on all your footwear including bulky boots;
  • LOW-PRO HEEL Add No Noticeable Weight to your footwear because each Heel Cleat weighs less than 4oz.; and
  • lastly, you'll always have them with you because LOW-PRO HEEL Easily Fit into Your Pocket or glove compartment.

GRIPS-LITE Demo

Choose GRIPS-LITE Ice Cleats when non-conductivity and non-sparking ice cleats are a necessity. Examples include oil and gas extraction, processing, and transport, refueling operations. around explosives, and grain storage. Non-Sparking ice cleats are much safer than ice cleats that are only spark-retardant.

GRIPS-LITE give you improved traction on a variety of slick surfaces including oil and grease, wet floors, and chemicals. However, if your primary concern is slick winter surfaces and you do not require non-conductivity or Non-Sparking, choose a Studded Ice Cleat. That's because gritted ice cleats only reduce falls on the ice and snow by 40 to 50 percent and because they're far less effective in frigid temperatures when the ice is denser.

  • Reduce Falls by 40 - 50%.
  • Aluminum Oxide Grit Bands are
    • the longest-lasting grit traction design;
    • constantly refresh and renew;

Crucial Ice Cleats Sizing Advice

  1. You can go by the shoe sizes. However, the actual size of the shoe or boot can vary significantly for the same foot size. So option two below is a better way to select the correct size.
    (OR)
  2. Measure the length of your shoe or boot. Measure the bottom from the tip of the sole to the base of the heel. Measure on "the flat", don't wrap around. We want the length. Then find the size on the sizing chart with the Footwear Length Range that spans the length of your footwear. Measure carefully. Measure twice. Our goal is to get you the right size on the first try to make you as safe as possible as soon as possible.
Ice cleats sizes are unisex and fit men's and women's shoes and boots according to the sizing charts.
Always try your ice cleats on as soon as you receive them for two reasons.
  1. You want to be ready for the bad weather. Don't wait until the ice is on the ground to find out you need a size exchange.
  2. I can't do free size exchanges for ice cleats that have been used because I can't resell them.
FAQs

What should I do if the length of my shoe or boot is extremely close to the breakpoint of a size range? Should I choose the next larger size? For example, assume the length of your boot or shoe is just under 12½". You look at the specific size chart for ice cleats you're buying. Assume for this example the Medium has size range of 11½" to < 12½" and a Large is 12½" to < 13". For regular shoes and work shoes, stick with the smaller of the two sizes you're considering. If you're planning to use your ice cleats on heavier winter boots, choose the bigger size.

I'm planning to use the ice cleats on both my shoes and boots. But they're different lengths. What should I do?

If the difference in length is small, order the size for the larger boots. Purchase the optional Ankle Strap to use when you use the ice cleats on your shoes. The ankle strap will make sure they stay on. If the difference in length is significant, you may need two sizes of ice cleats. That's because you want the ice cleats to be snug, so they not only stay on your footwear but also stay aligned.

I have a large company. There's no way I can measure everyone's footwear.

I understand. Go by shoe sizes. I'll be happy to exchange sizes later on. However, please make sure you haven't used the ice cleats outdoors.

Is the measuring technique 100% accurate?

Nope. It's accurate most of the time. Measuring is far superior to go by shoe size.
