Fitting AutoSock on forklifts

Tips for safe fitting, use and removal

Fitting is very easy on most forklifts. If they are a very tight fit, too tight, please let us know because there is obviously a size issue that we need to learn about.

It could hardly be simpler. Stop the forklift and apply the parking brake. Fit AutoSock to the wheels of the forklift, starting at the top of the tyre and working downwards. Move the vehicle approximately ½ metre and put the remainder of each 'Sock' into position - see the "movie" sequence above.


There's NO need to turn off any electronic traction and stability devices, e.g. ETS, ASR, ESP, DSC. Drive off gently, avoiding wheel spin. Extreme acceleration and braking could damage the product.


Take AutoSock off the wheels, shake off any snow, and put them back in their storage pouch pending washing or further use.
