Save Time and Money

TruckClaws™ II should be stowed in every truck you and your family members own. You never know when you or a family member will need them. TruckClaws can get you unstuck in your driveway so you can get to work the morning after a snowstorm. TruckClaws can get your RV moving again after you parked it on a sandy beach. TruckClaws can get your pickup truck out of the Mud on a job site. The scenarios in which TruckClaws II are an extremely valuable truck recovery tool are virtually endless. TruckClaws II is made of super-strong aircraft-grade aluminum making them a durable, reusable, and powerful traction aid that can get your Truck, SUV, Jeep, RV, or ATV unstuck from snow, ice, sand or mud quickly and safely. TruckClaws II is easy to install and can be installed after you get stuck. You can even install TruckClaws over conventional snow and tire chains.

Everything You Need

Each TruckClaws Extender Bar Combo Kit comes with two “Claws”, two 48″ straps, two ratchets, two extender bars and a carrying case. Extender bars give you 10 more inches of added grip. Extender bars are for use in mud and sand. When you are buried deep you can use extender bars and a log, limb or 2×4 piece of wood to lift your vehicle off high-center. Always consult our instructions for proper and safe usage and always watch your wheel clearances. Do not use TruckClaws on wheels with plastic rims or wheel covers, remove them first.

TruckClaws II

Wide Vehicle Compatibility

TruckClaws II kits work on a wide variety of trucks and all terrain vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating of 30,000lbs or less. For anything more, such as a semi-trailer, firetruck, dump truck etc., our TruckClaws Commercial product should be used. Below is a list of some of the many vehicle types that TruckClaws II work great with!

Wheel Clearance

TruckClaws Require 2.5 Inches or 6.4 Centimeters of wheel Clearance to operate. Additionally if there is a brake caliper behind the wheel there must be clearance to thread the strap. Almost all vehicles meet this requirement but there are exceptions. You can either measure your wheel clearance prior to purchase, or buy a set and test them out. We offer a 30 Day return policy in the event TruckClaws do not fit your vehicle. If you are unsure if you have enough clearance we advise measuring your clearance and going slow when you test them out. Remember to follow the installation directions included with your kit. Never install TruckClaws II on wheels with plastic rims or hubcaps, remove them first.

Strap Clearance

TruckClaws require an opening in your rim to insert the strap. If you only have small holes in your rims the strap can be curled to thread it through the wheel.  Do not install the TruckClaws Strap over or next too the tire’s air valve stem. In some rare cases there is only one hole in the rim which happens to be where the air valve stem is also. In this scenario please contact us first to try and fabricate a custom solution for your vehicle as pictured below.

TruckClaws II Recommended Single Kit Install

4 Wheel Drive and Rear Wheel Drive Vehicles

A single TruckClaws II kit comes with everything you need to install on both your left and right drive wheels. We recommend installing on the rear wheels so you are able to turn your steering wheel during vehicle recovery, without having to worry about the reduction in clearance caused by this action.

4 Wheel Drive and Rear Wheel Drive Vehicles

If you purchase two TruckClaws II kits you will have 4 traction aid devices. When installing on both 4 wheel drive and rear wheel drive vehicles we recommend installing both kits on the rear wheel drive tires in roughly the 9 O’clock and 2 O’clock position as pictured below.  Having two claws installed on each of the rear wheels will increase traction as you will grab twice as often per rotation.  We recommend installing on the rear wheels so you are able to turn your steering wheel during vehicle recovery, without having to worry about the reduction in clearance caused by this action.

Front Wheel Drive Vehicles

A single TruckClaws II kit comes with everything you need to install on both your left and right front drive wheels. While we always recommend installing on the rear wheels so you are able to turn your steering wheel during vehicle recovery, with a front wheel drive vehicle this is not an option. TruckClaws II can still be used to recover your vehicle but you must use caution. During use of the TruckClaws II traction device, you must keep your wheel straight in order to maintain the required 2.5 inches of wheel clearance.

If your truck is lifted and there is a very large amount of clearance this caution may not be applicable to your vehicle, but doing so will be at your own risk. TruckClaws are emergency  traction aid devices designed to be removed immediately after use. Follow the installation instructions closely, go slow and test them out first.

How To Use Extender Bars

Extender bars are useful when you are really stuck and need additional grip. If your truck is dug in very deep and essentially stuck on high center, extender bars can also help get you out. Laying a log, tree limb, or piece of lumber parallel to the tire and then having the extender bar come down on it slowly, can lift your vehicle out.  Extender bars are intended for use when stuck in deep mud or even sand. We do not recommend use in the snow as it is possible that the extender bar can come loose from the cleat and get lost in deep snow! We strongly advise ONLY using extender bars on your rear drive wheels so there are no issues with clearance. To use your extender bars you simply slide them into the traction cleat until they are stopped by the pre-installed set screw. Always attempt recovery without the extender bars first. This will make sure everything is tightened properly and set correctly before sliding the Extender bars into position.
