Flex-Trax unveils tire chain alternative
Bristol, Tenn.-based Flex-Trax Inc.´s new GoClaws tire traction system is ready for both the consumer and commercial markets.
The GoClaws system is "easier and faster to install" than tire chains, according to Flex-Trax President Mike Stollings. It is designed for vehicles "ranging from compact cars to tandem tractor-trailers."
The product utilizes track segments made out of the company´s proprietary Duratanium material molded with hydraulic gripping chambers arranged in a crossing grid formation, all of which is then placed over a tire and connected by adjustable dual-pin linkages.
In Canada, it is known as SnoClaws and is available through the Canadian Tire chain.
