When installing Grip Studs® with the Grip Studs® driver tool, ensure the prongs on your tool are firmly seated in the notches in the studs. If the tool is not seated all the way in the stud, torque pressure can cause the installation tool to break. Grip Studs® tools are not designed to be used with impact drivers.

Select Studs! Select from the recommended stud(s) below. You can also refer to our Stud Selection Guide to help aid in your selection.
Handle only! This tool must be combined with the appropriate install tool in order to drive studs.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Always check shoe sole depth before installing Grip Studs.® Grip Studs® shoe studs can be installed with the Grip Studs® manual driver tool or with the Grip Studs® power bit in a variable speed drill.
Snap a stud into the tip of the install tool (auger end facing outward).
Position the end of the stud firmly against a thick knob of the shoe sole. Firmly apply pressure straight down while slowly screwing the stud into the sole until the prongs on the tool penetrate the rubber. Remove the tool from the stud. The notched collar on the stud should be flush with the rubber. Studs may come out if they are not adequately sunk into the rubber.
Repeat procedure for all studs. For optimum traction, install studs in varied pattern (not in a straight line) on the sole so the studs can make better contact with the terrain.
Grip Studs® are also easily removed by backing them out with the same tool.
CAUTION: Over-tightening may cause studs to penetrate entirely through shoe soles; verify sole thickness before installing studs. Studs may damage or mar floors, truck beds and other surfaces.
