IGRIP SCREW STUDS
IGRIP SCREW STUDS
Are A Safe Grip On All Winter Surfaces
iGrip is a Canadian company, specialized in the design and manufacturing of screw studs since 2015, with over 10 years’ experience in the field. Our studs are innovative, with a unique design and superior quality and are suitable for any kind of vehicle and will meet your needs.
The reputation of our products is renowned, because of their safety, their simple installation and our comprehensive range of long-lasting solutions suitable for any weather condition. We have several kinds of studs designed for automobiles, agricultural vehicles, heavy and light machinery, recreational vehicles, snowmobiles, forest vehicles, military vehicles, mining vehicles and bikes, as well as for safety boots.
All iGRIP studs are manufactured in hot dipped steel to maximize their durability and with a zinc heat galvanization process which acts as a shield against corrosion. All studs are equipped with a tungsten carbide point to provide a continued and increased traction. This is possible thanks to unparallelled depth of the stud’s anchoring in the ice. Easy and quick to install, especially because of the tool provided, the iGrip stud may be used without any difficulties more than one season on new or used tires. As well, the studs are easy to remove, as needed.
At iGrip Studs, innovation and new product development are common currency. We listen to our clients and we do not hesitate to create new products to satisfy their needs. With our high production capacity, we cater not only to users but also to machinery manufacturers.

For many years iGRIP has offered ST-type (standard thread) studs. However, in order to improve the product range, iGRIP has added two stud types to the stock, thus answering to the customers’ needs.
The SS (shoulder studs) models were designed for heavy machinery and all kinds of vehicles used in extreme conditions and environments. As well, there are SF (spark free) model studs, which, as the name suggests, do not create sparks when in contact with the ground.
Footwear, tires and tracks will immediately have an increased level of safety after the installation of iGRIP studs, which allows better control of the vehicle when used in slippery terrains.
SUITED TO YOUR REALITY
It is possible to choose and vary the number of studs inserted in the tire or in the footwear soles in order to respond to specific needs.
Moreover, the variable depths and lengths guarantee an optimal grip of the tires, tracks or boot soles on ice, snow, mud, slippery rocks or frozen roadways. For control, effectiveness and safety, choose among our wide selection of versatile screw studs.
3 STUD MODELS:
YES. If the studs are fitted according to the instructions, they will remain fixed to the tire even when driving on rough surfaces. The iGrip screw stud has been thoroughly tested and developed for five+ years. It has been tested on everything from tractors and off-road motorcycles to snow scooters and shoes.
NO. But check that the tread depth is adequate prior to a fitting. Large tires normally have a good margin thickness. Do not use studs that are longer than the tread depth of the tire. The stud should be fitted so that 3 mm of it is visible above the tire surface to ensure that the wheel cord remains unaffected.
YES. This is one of iGrip’s advantages — only very small holes will remain in the tire when the studs have been removed.
We recommend around 100 studs per tractor tire and 2-3 studs per contact patch. There are normally around 40 contact patches around each tire regardless of its diameter. Industrial tires normally require 150 studs per tire. Trucks and ATVs normally require 50-100 studs per tire. We recommend 70-100 studs per tire for cross and Enduro bikes. Please note that these figures are intended as guidelines only, ultimately, it is the customer’s specific needs and the situation that will determine the actual requirements.
