ZipGripGo is an innovative new traction aid that allows drivers of cars and SUV’s to get out of snow, ice or mud. The heavy duty cleated zip tie system installs quickly to get you and your passengers out of harm’s way. Traditional tire chains are cumbersome to carry and difficult to install..

 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

How durable is  Zip Grip Go?

In one word - VERY! After 3 years of extensive research and development, we were able to produce a specially engineered grade material that performs beyond our expectations in both warm and cold climates. We know that actions can speak louder than words, so see just how durable they are here in our research and development video.

 How long does it take to install Zip Grip Go? 

Thanks to its unique patented design, Zip Grip Go is not only durable, but light enough to be easily handled by anyone. It takes less than 5 minutes to install, and can easily be installed even after you get stuck, making our product the most unique on the market!

Can Zip Grip Go be used in forward or reverse direction?

Absolutely! We understand that either forward or reverse could be required, so we engineered a product to tackle both situations. It is our special double tiered design that allows for both forward and backward mobility. 

How many Zip Grip Go's should you install per tire?

There is no exact number to install, but we have you covered! It truly depends on your rims and your situation. Some rims accept 5 and others 6. We supply 12 per pack to play it safe! 

What size tires will Zip Grip Go’s fit on?

Zip Grip Go was designed to fit on most cars, SUV’s and trucks. The adjustable feature on Zip Grip Go will fit on rims up to 22”. 

Are they reusable? 

Our goal was to develop a product that can easily allow you to use your own vehicles power to get you unstuck and back on your way. This not only avoids the need for costly towing service, but it gets you and your passengers out of harm's way without having to wait for help in a dangerous spot. We tested the product for years and found that after getting unstuck, our test market preferred a quicker method of removal for safety reason versus re usability and for that reason they recommended for a onetime use. That said we continue to appreciate feedback and we hope for great things in future products! 

Can I purchase these outside the United States? 

Our current KickStarter campaign focuses on the United States, but we will be launching to other areas of the world soon. In the meantime please contact us at kickstarter@zipgripgo.com so we can see how we might be able to help. 

Risks and challenges

We have a firm grasp of risks and challenges that can present themselves through the campaign, and we've taken all the time and steps needed to make sure everything runs smoothly. We have been working on ZGG for several years now, and we're finally ready to take this big step.

Our tire traction aid is ready to go. All we need is your support. I can only say that the risk would be a huge amount of backers that may push back some ship dates. That would be a wonderful problem to have.
