The Due North® HTA - Heel Traction Aids are ideal for drivers, delivery personnel or anyone operating machinery where use of a conventional, full coverage traction aid may interfere with driving capabilities. Whether you're a professional delivery person or someone who just needs extra stability in winter conditions, the enhanced design and functionality of the HTA will give you the extra confidence you need when walking on icy and snowy conditions. The HTA has two unique design features that quickly and easily allow the user to flip the traction pad or slide the traction pad out from underneath the heel when encountering a walking surface that may be damaged. Simply reverse the procedure when ice and snow traction is again needed and potential damage to the walking surface is no longer present. The increased traction will help with preventing slips and falls on ice and snow, which will help reduce the risk of pulled muscles, fractured bones or even back problems caused by a quick slip or fall. When not in use, the compact design makes them easy to store in small places such as, your coat pocket, handbag or the glove box in your vehicle.
