Trac-Grabber introduces its next-generation vehicle rescue device with a newly engineered rubber block design to provide extreme traction at the point of attack and a redesigned strap for easier attachment to the wheel.
Peace of Mind in The Elements
With 70 percent of the population living in regions that receive five inches or more snow each year, Trac-Grabber is ideal for drivers who traverse snow-covered roads and are worried about getting stuck and stranded in the elements. Through Trac-Grabber’s block and strap design, any driver can pair the device with their car’s power to get unstuck from semi-submerged tire situations anytime, anywhere.
“Since 2010, TracGrabber has delivered on its core mission to get vehicles unstuck from a snow, mud, and sand submerged condition where tires simply can’t get the traction required to rescue the vehicle,” states Jim Perry, Trac-Grabber managing partner and product designer. “Our latest product is stronger, has better grip, and is as light as before, so anyone can install it. With all these benefits, Trac-Grabber provides drivers instant peace of mind and confidence, knowing they won’t get stranded.”
The rescue device, as light as 1.5 pounds, comes in sizes for cars, trucks, All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs), four-wheel drive vehicles, and even commercial vehicles (E.g., buses, and semi-truck).
How It Works
Trac-Grabber works by placing rubber blocks against each “drive wheel. The blocks have been modified to fit the wheel shape for ideal grip and less slippage. Velcro straps hold each block in place through an opening in the wheel. Finally, the hubcap is removed to expose the wheel opening. Installing the Trac-Grabber can be completed within 30 seconds.
Once installed, drivers slowly apply power until the tires rotate to engage the rubber blocks with the surface. The blocks gain traction with the surface, lift and remove the vehicle from its submerged state to allow a driver to get to stable terrain. Then, with a quick unfastening of the Velcro straps, the Trac-Grabber is removed.
Perry stated, “With the new design based on customer feedback, our team has done it again with our next-generation product uniquely positioned to attract new audiences – such as women, young drivers, and even senior/mature adults who don’t want to the stranded. Like a jumper cable, Trac-Grabber is a driver’s insurance policy in the elements to rescue them when they need it most.”
