Studs for extra grip on packed snow and ice. Our price is $2/each and you need 4 studs per boot.
****NOTE THAT CAUTION MUST STILL BE EXERCISED ON HARD ICE, HARD-PACKED SNOW, CLAY SOILS, AND OTHER CONDITIONS AS THERE STILL MAY BE SOME SLIPPING.****.
These are approximately 1/4" tee-nuts with matching bolts made steel. These are the tee nuts shown on the boot photo, a bit higher profile than the photo of just the tee-nut.
How to install:
This video and instructions are for four tee-nuts, one in each corner. For each stud a hole is drilled in the boot, the locking nut is pressed into the inside of the boot with pliers, and the bolt is inserted through the hole and screwed into the boot using a ratchet (see video)
1) Using the locking nut as a guide determine and mark the positions of each hole to be drilled, making sure you position them such that the nuts will have enough room on the inside of the boot.
2) Using a 3/8" drill, drill a hole into the boot in each corner.
3) Clamp the locking nut into the boot using pliers
4) Screw the bolt into the nut using a socket
