Essential winter accessories from AutoSock Direct
High quality snow brush with detachable ice scraper
A good strong brush especially designed for clearing snow off cars. It's 42cm long with an 18cm insulating rubber handle, and long nylon bristles which are not too soft or too hard for the job. It can be very dangerous to drive with snow on your car's roof or bonnet and this brush does an excellent job of getting rid of it rapidly.
Maypole 3 tonne tow rope
It makes sense to carry a tow rope in the car, but even more so in winter. This Maypole 3 tonne tow rope starts at 1.8m and stretches to 3.8m, eliminating snatching. Its drop forged hooks make it quick, clean and easy to use - there's no need to grovel around under the car looking for places to tie on or loop through. Just clip it into your towing eye, front or back.It's basically a big bungee cord, covered in a strong, multi-coloured sleeve.We use them in all our vehicles here, mostly for pulling pallets out of vans, but have never found anything better at trade shows here or abroad.
Petzl Tikkina head torch
Another staff-favourite, this excellent head torch from Petzl will ensure you are not scrambling around in the dark trying to fit your AutoSock. All our vans have a Tikkina 2 in the glove compartment and they come in handy all year round - especially in winter. It has two lighting modes (maximum and economic) and a comfortable headband. It requires 3 x AAA batteries which are included. You won't regret adding this to your basket!
