Pt. 1

1.) Grab MAXTRAX from one of the six glove-friendly built-in handles and use either shovel on both ends to clear debris from underneath the chassis and tires, clearing a path for the vehicle to move forward.

2.) Attach your included MAXTRAX Tell Tale Leashes to allow easier retrieval in messy conditions.

Pt. 2

3.) Once you've cleared away the debris, wedge either end of the MAXTRAX's dual ramps firmly against the tread face of your tire, as low as possible—ensuring the teeth are making good contact so you can take the easy way out with MAXTRAX.

With one pair of MAXTRAX, try to put them under the front tires where possible—your back tires will run them over for additional traction. Two pairs of MAXTRAX allow for even faster recoveries.

Pt. 3

4.) Shift into your lowest gear, and gently begin to accelerate while the MAXTRAX interlock with your tire tread. You'll begin to feel your vehicle being lifted UP and OUT of the mess you found yourself in. Where appropriate, continue driving to an area where you won't get stuck. Remember to always Tread Lightly.

Pt. 4

There's no need to break traction by spinning your wheels, you'll just risk damage to your MAXTRAX and your tires and you won't get out any faster. ​

5.) Grab your MAXTRAX by the Telltale Leashes and securely store them for transport.
