AutoSock certificate for France
Posted by Elliot @ The Roof Box Company, Last modified by Charlotte @ The Roof Box Company on 28 February 2017 04:45 PM

If you would like to use your AutoSock in France then you require the attached certification, it's also printed on the packaging of all AutoSock sold now.

AutoSock are regarded as "snow chain equivalents" in Germany, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, France, Italy and Austria. 

When the snow chain signs appear on French roads, you will need to display a sticker for your AutoSocks - giving some additional information in order to comply with the French national standard. They are provided on the bag that the AutoSock comes in but we can provide these stickers if you need one for an old set.

It's also worth mentioning that although AutoSocks provide excellent traction - they cannot rival the performance of chains in extreme conditions (steep slopes, hair pin bends, patchy ice). Ideally we suggest you take a set of chains and a set of AutoSocks - to enjoy the best of both worlds!

For rear-wheel drive vehicles, we would definitely advise a set of snow chains on the rear wheels and a set of AutoSocks on the front for maximum traction and control.
