Notice how many of these accidents happened near home, or while doing routine driving.
You never know when you will get stuck!
Better keep a pack of Lions Grips in each vehicle
as standard equipment!


SPRING and
SUMMER

March ~~ SLUSHY SNOW IN DITCH
Lake Tahoe, California
  L. H., Sonora, California: "I was on vacation at Lake Tahoe with my family. I was driving our van to the resort where we were staying on a rural country road and skidded on a patch of ice. I plowed into a ditch where the snow was about six inches deep. I tried to drive forward but my tires spun in the slushy snow. After some useless tirespinning, my dad got out of the van, put the Lionsgrips next to my rear wheels and everyone pushed the van a little to catch the pads. Somewhat embarrassing even around family but at least we got out. Getting stuck without Lions Grips is a sucky position to be in."
   
March ~~ SNOWDRIFTS FROZE SOLID IN DRIVEWAY
Valdez, Alaska
  M.P. returned home after shopping to find that snow drifts had solidified in her driveway. She and her husband tried digging the congealed snow away, but it was pretty hard. Finally, her husband said, "Don't you have some of those Traction Pad thingies?" "I sure do!" M. said. "We whipped out a package of Lions Grips and I was able to drive my car into the garage in three minutes ... and avoid the amused stares and knowing head shakes of all my neighbors!"
   
March ~~ PEACE OF MIND IN HAWAII
Hilo, Hawaii
  E.T.: "I haven't had occasion to use the pads yet, but I have peace of mind knowing they're in my truck."
   
March ~~ SAND AT BEACH
Pismo Beach, California
  J. P., Las Vegas, Nevada: "I did use the Lions Grip Pads as a preventive measure on the sand at Pismo Beach. They worked great -- I didn't get stuck as I had in the past."
   
April ~~ SLIPPERY CLAY MUD
Lake County, California
  A man was stuck in clay mud in his 3/4-ton pickup truck, and drove out easily with Lion's Grips.
   
May ~~ DRIVEABLE LAWN MOWER
Evansville area, Indiana
  A grandmother became stuck in wet lawn grass in her heavy drivable lawn mower. She got Lion's Grips out of her car, put them under the lawn mower's tires, and drove right out of the trap.
   
May ~~ MUD IN THE MOUNTAINS
Ahwahnee, California
  V. B. became stuck in his light pickup truck in mud. He used Lion's Grips and drove out.
   
June ~~~ SAND AT DAYTONA BEACH
Daytona Beach, Florida
  Meghan F.: "I was driving our rear-wheel custom van on Daytona Beach on our vacation with my husband. I had to turn around to get to the exit so we could get back to our hotel. I didn't realize that I had backed into soft sand while trying to turn around. My tires dug into the sand and spun like crazy! I knew I should not make deeper ruts. My husband got out and put our Lionsgrips next to my rear tires and with some spinnng I got out safely. I take my Lionsgrips everywhere I drive..."
   
June ~~~ JAGUAR IN BRAMBLE BUSH
Portland, Oregon
  M.S. has five Jaguars; the 1993 XJ6 managed to get stuck in mud in a very large, thorny bramble bush on his property. M. did not wish to fix tow chains to it, so he put his Lions Grips under the driving tires and got out easily, on the second try. "Your Lions Grips worked great," he said.
   

FALL and
WINTER

October ~~ DRIVEWAY MUDDY
Santa Rosa, California
  J. J. got his wife's Nissan Stanza Wagon out of mud in their driveway. She had parked slightly off the driveway, and it poured rain that night. There was no place for a tow truck to drive up without getting stuck also. "I put the pads as tight as possible under the front of the tires. While my wife drove I pushed the car only slightly to get the pads to catch. I used 2 pads on each tire and it easily drove out. They worked perfect!" he said.
   
November ~~ SOFT SNOW
Mammoth Lakes, California
  B. P. became stuck in new soft snow, used his Lion's Grips, and drove out easily. He said, "They worked like a charm, and they are still in good shape and reusable."
   
November ~~ A MUDDY CONSTRUCTION SITE
USA
  Christina: "My husband and I were building our new house in a new subdivision. Anyway one day on the construction site it was very muddy from a lot of rain we received a few days earlier. I got into my van and tried to back up when I realized my tires were spinning in the mud. I was frustrated that I could not get out of the mud. I called my husband and he came over with the pads and after some major tirespinning I got out of the mud."
   
November ~~ FOOTBALL GAME, DIRT PARKING LOT
Burlington, Massachusetts
  Heather C: "I went to a Patriots football game with my boyfriend and my mom and brother. I parked our Buick station wagon in a dirt parking lot filled with other vehicles (we got there rather late) the only spaces left were in the muddiest section of the lot. The other motorists had the common sense to stay out of that mud. We came back to our car after the game, I gunned the engine and spun my rear tires creating a rooster tail of mud spray. We borrowed some Lions Grip pads from another family. I put them down in the mud in front of my tires and we got with ease."
   
Winter ~~ SNOW
Chicago, Illinois
  Ms. Rita L. reports: "I know about these because I was with a friend and she got stuck, in the snow. And she had some of these and got out. She said they work great."

   
December ~~ SNOW IN FOREST
Bad Mergentheim, Germany
  W.W., an M.D., was driving his Mercedes 230E on a country road. Snow was on the ground and the roads were becoming slippery. He turned to go uphill, but got stuck. "I put 2 Grips in front of the back wheels and 2 behind. Then I drove to and fro, and very quickly I got free. ...I think this was very good idea to develop such traction pads. The pads were of excellent help. So many thanks."

   
December ~~~ SNOW BLIZZARD
Sierra Nevada Mountains, California
  K.S. was in Datsun pickup in a fast-falling blizzard. Attempting to go uphill, slipped backward in thick snow on inclined road, and turned sideways. The rear tire was about to go off the side of the cliff. No opportunity to put on chains in this position. She quickly opened a package of Lion's Grips and placed three pads in a row in front of each rear tire. She drove out easily on the first try. She said, "It felt like driving on dry pavement when I was on the traction pads." This gave the truck enough momentum to be driven to a safe position in order to put on chains.
   
   
January ~~~ ICE IN DRIVEWAY
Northampton, Massachusetts
  N. S. got stuck in ice in his driveway, in his Dodge van. He could go neither forward nor backward. One tire was an inch off the ground. He put two pads under that tire, and one under the other (driving) tire. The pads grabbed right away on the tire that was in contact with the ground, but slipped under the airborne tire. He then put more pads under the airborne tire and drove out.
   
January ~~ MUDDY MEADOW
Cobb Mountain, California
  K.S. became stuck in a slough caused by undrained meadow, in a large, old pickup truck. The tires quickly sunk into the wet mud. Placing Lions Grips front and back of driving tires, plus in front of the non-driving tires, helped greatly with the traction. Some quick shovel work had to be done to the wall of mud and gravel obstructing the front tires, but Lions Grips were all that was needed on the driving tires. Took about 20 minutes in all to drive out.
   
January ~~ ICE RUTS
New Hampshire
  J.P. was vacationing, when hit by a heavy storm that left a 3 to 4 inch layer of ice on the ground. There were lots of deep ice ruts in the road, and some snow. The 1990 Mazda pick-up wouldn't budge and the wheels were spinning in ruts of ice. He tried kitty litter, but could not get out. He put down Lions Grips. It worked instantly. "I've never seen anything like it!" J.P. said. "I'd buy stock in your company if I could." [Soon!]
   
January ~~ SNOW NEAR BAKERSFIELD, CA!!
Kern Canyon, California
 

P. & G. P. were driving their front-wheel-drive Geo down the incredibly narrow, winding Kern Canyon Road, east of Bakersfield. This strange day saw 5 inches of snow in the area, something that they had never seen there!! The snow began falling so fast and thick that they were trapped ~~~ going in the downhill direction. There wasn't enough traction to drive back uphill in the snow. They had no choice but to continue on the narrow, rock-walled road. They lost traction and went into a slide, and came to a stop broadside to traffic in the middle of the road. If another car came, it is likely it would hit them. Facing slightly uphill, the wheels could get no traction at all. They tried pushing by hand, but no go.

Since they were in a dangerous position, and the snow was falling fast, they took only enough time to put two Lions Grip Traction Pads down, one in front of each driving wheel. With another person pushing by hand, the Lions Grips grabbed and held. They drove ahead until they got to a turn-out, where they waited for help, which eventually came.

   
January ~~ SNOW AND ICE ON INCLINED GROUND
La Grange, Kentucky
  T.W.: "A company driver got stuck in his big-box truck in snow and ice, on tilted ground. The location was right in town. The driver drove into a parking lot which is on a slight incline, covered with ice and snow. I put a Traction Pad in front of each rear tire and rocked the truck on the pads. This way I was able to get enough traction to drive out of the lot. They're a good item to have in the trunk of the car."
   
   
January ~~ STUCK EVERY TIME NOT ON ROAD
Island off coast of Maine
  M. H., Greenwich, Connecticut: "When I ordered your Lions Grip pads last year, we were spending the winter on an island off the coast of Maine. I was driving a Mercedes station wagon at the time, and got stuck whenever I went off a paved, plowed roadway. The Lions Grip pads were my only assurance of being able to get out of any spot I got into. (Approximate time for getting out of a "stuck" position was 20 minutes.) Thanks for your terrific product."
   
January ~~~ ICE AT SHOPPING MALL
Worcester, MA
  M.B. : "I was driving home from a ski trip with some of my college girlfriends in my boyfriend's van when we stopped at a mall to do some early spring season shopping. When we came back to the van I tried to drive out. My rear tires spun on ice. I couldn't go forward. My girlfriends pushed from the back but I could not got out of the icy ruts. I called my boyfriend on my cell and he told me about the Lionsgrips Pads under the bench seat next to the tire changing equipment. He used them once when he was stuck in mud last summer.We put them next to the rear tires and I got out quickly. Thanks a bunch I was really scared for a moment"
   
February ~~ RACE DRIVER STUCK IN WET GRASS
Upper Lake, California
  R.R. (a race car driver): "I got my own car stuck in wet grass. I just put them down in front and in back of the driving tires and rocked it out. Took about a minute."
   
February ~~~ SNOW IN PARKING LOT
Lake Tahoe, Nevada
  H. L. was stuck in fast-falling snow, in a large parking lot angled slightly uphill. He was in an unloaded pickup truck. He placed three Lion's Grips in a row in front of each driving tire, and could get good momentum right away, but the angle of the parking lot caused him to come to a stop several feet away. He repeated the procedure 3 or 4 more times until he got to the exit of the parking lot.
   
February ~~ BOOM RIG IN DEEP MUD
Lake County, California
  V. G. became stuck in his very heavy "Boom Rig" dual-wheeled commercial truck, in deep, watery mud. The mud came almost up to his rear fender. He placed two Big-Rig Size Lion's Grips under his tires and drove straight out on the first pass, without any trouble.
