Now that Christmas is over and we're settling in to those months of cold and snow, it's time to think about what you can do to make the area around your home a little safer. Of course, while it's a bit more difficult to get around, you need to take extra precautions when taking out the garbage, getting to your car or the bus stop.
Salting or sanding the area around the outside of your home is a good first step, but also consider what you can do to make every step safe. Here we can take a lesson from ice fishermen who know the treachery of walking on ice and snow. Snow Paws offer a safer way of walking on ice and snow and quickly slide onto your shoe providing the much needed traction necessary to stay safe in winter weather. These winter cleats also come with a handy water-resistant pouch which can fit in your pocket or purse, so you can take them with you wherever you go.
If you have a cane, don't forget to add an ice pick to make sure you have the best possible support. The five-prong ice pick offers the best stability by providing a larger contact area. The tip can be lifted up when indoors to protect floors. Check out our deals on winter safety products.
