1. What is the recommended driving distance with ZipGripGo installed on my car?
There is no ideal distance that is recommended. The product is meant for short distances, particularly emergency situations where you need to get from where you are to a road that has been cleared or for when you are stuck in the snow and your tires are just spinning. It won’t harm your car to use them for longer distances, but that is not what they are recommended for. The products have been tested on driving distances under 20 miles.
2. Do you recommend using ZipGripGo instead of traditional chains?
Traditional chains serve a necessary purpose. Most travelers can utilize chains to travel over longer distances. Chains, however, can be expensive, are difficult to put on and can sometimes damage your vehicle. ZipGripGo was developed as a low cost, easy to install alternative meant for shorter travel distances and for emergency weather situations.
3. What is the difference between traditional chains and ZipGripGo?
Traditional tire chains can be expensive, difficult to install and can cause your car, and the roads, significant damage. Until recently tire chains were the only device available that could help your car get through adverse weather conditions. ZipGripGo is an alternative traction device and is the world’s most affordable alternative to traditional snow chains.
4. Can ZipGripGo replace tire chains?
If you are already stuck in the snow, ZipGripGo is the best option because it can be quickly installed and removed, requires no tools and requires no automotive expertise to install. Tire chains are difficult and time consuming. ZipGripGo fits most passenger vehicle tires, whereas, tire chains require knowledge about the exact tire size since they are size specific. Without this knowledge, you can cause serious damage to your car. However, if you are traveling long distances in inclement weather, tire chains are recommended.
5. Does ZipGripGo meet the chain control requirements posted in various states like California and Colorado?
At this time we have not pursued any certifications, but this is something that we plan to do in the future. We will continually update the website with any new information.
6. Which tires should I install ZipGripGo onto?
Tire traction devices from ZipGripGo should be installed on front tires for cars with front wheel drive and on rear tires for cars with rear wheel drive. An extra set of replacement ties is provided for the user to familiarize themselves with installing the traction device before an emergency arises.
7. Do four-wheel drive vehicles really need ZipGripGo?
Even four-wheel drive vehicles can benefit from ZipGripGo. Although four-wheel drive cars and SUVs do well in snow, they still have the same difficulty getting through ice and slick driving conditions as non-four-wheel drive cars do. ZipGripGo is meant for all adverse road conditions and in situations when even a four-wheel drive car isn’t enough to get you through.
8. Which option provides the best traction, ZipGripGo chains or the chain-free version?
Both ZipGripGo products are effective for snow and icy conditions. For some, it might be a matter of the cost difference and for others, the simple zip tie version might be less intimidating. It is just a matter of personal preference. Both are equally effective.
10. Can I reuse ZipGripGo?
These products are not recommended to be reused. The Original ZipGrip includes chains, which can be reused, but we recommend drivers purchase replacement zip ties. The innovative, chain free ZipGrip is not recommended for reuse.
12. Can I use ZipGripGo on any kind of tire rim?
ZipGripGo devices are meant for aluminum and alloy rims only and are not recommended for use on steel rims. Some rims have sharp edges which will shorten the life of the traction device.
13. How many zip ties should I install on each tire?
We recommend that you install four zip ties per tire.
