Pick up truck traction is a growing safety problem in various parts of the globe. Inclement weather conditions can plague roads and vehicles all thru colder temperatures and climates. The Weight-Mates are an all weather traction device that are easily installed in the bed of a pick up truck, between the (2) rear wheel wells. The tanks are filled with water and can add over 500 pounds directly over the rear axle of the vehicle, drastically improving upon the traction during severe weather conditions such as ice, snow, sleet, rain or even in loose surface conditions such as sand or gravel.
The Weight-Mates are offered in (3) different lengths, 6 foot, 6.5 foot and 8 foot lengths. 6 foot sets are offered in both 20” and 24” (each tank) widths to accommodate 40” and 48” wheel well spacing.
Weight-Mates function as an all-weather traction device, improving upon the previously accepted conventional ideas such as messy, deteriorating sandbags or dangerous cinder blocks.
Weight-mates feature durable, rotomolded LLDPE constuction, which will not crack or break in freezing temperatures. Because of the Weight-Mates low profile design, featuring a 6″ height, you can still top load the Weight-Mates just as you would any pick up truck, with your tools, equipment, etc.
Weighing in at as little as 30 pounds per tank, the Weight-Mates are easily drained and removed for storage if you elected to not use them during summer and spring months.
