Ice Breaker Mats
We ordered these mats about 18 years ago as we live where there is lots of snow and ice. They have now given us the best wear possible, so have purchased them again. We leave them up all year long and they have weathered many winters. Without these mats, we would no be able to use the stairs with the safety we experience every time we, or friends, use them.
I would recommend these to anyone for safety.

These Don't Work!
I purchased six of these mats for our front porch and four steps on our front walk. Nowhere in the catalog did it say that they had to be glued or nailed down. We just spent a substantial of money redoing our front porch (brick and slate) and my husband was not about to glue anything to it. Nails of course are out of the question. The first snowstorm we had I put the mats on the steps and by morning they were in the front yard.

ice breaker mats
The first snow storm the mats slid of the steps. We did not know you had to buy sealer. We put it on. We were wondering if there was a paticular tempeture or weather conditions for putting them on.

Great product but bad advertising
The product itself is terrific - appears to be of very good quality and anticipate it to last for years. Problem is, I totally misunderstood (yes it it my fault) and thought that when I placed the order I would be getting three mats - one for each of my steps. Come to find out I would only get one mat. I could absolutely SWEAR that the ad said there would be three. I have no choice but to cut the one and only mat I have to cover two steps and leave the top step as is. I understand I would be setting myself up for ruining the mat but feel I have no choice. I could also just return the mat but don't want to do that. Lesson to me: READ DETAILS!!!!!

Ice Breaker Mats
These mats really do work, BUT, I think I might have to use them a little differently than planned. We get so much ice, and I use spikes on my boots for the sidewalk, driveway, getting the mail, snowplowing etc., I'm afraid of poking holes in the matts and ruining them. I hadn't thought about that when I purchased them! I'll use them on the back porch where I don't use the spikes. I'll line up door matt and 3 step mats end to end along the woodpile!

Elderly mom loves them!
I first got these for my parents back in 2005 when they moved to central NY. They worked as advertised and saved my folks from slipping and sliding on their wood deck/stairs. After 9 seasons, I thought they should be replaced. I just got them down on the wood and the snow came. My mom said to me the next day - thank goodness for these ice breaker mats - they are the best!

There you go dogs!
We have been hit with quite a bit of snow and ice already this winter. My wife and I have three dogs, two dachshunds and a Great Dane! The only way to the back yard is down the deck steps! Before we had these mats, it was quite an effort to clean them off so I can get on the porch to shovel a path for the dogs! After we got the mats, it was just as advertised! I took the handle of the broom and hit it on the mat once or twice! What didn't fall off, I was able to gently sweep off! These mats have been a real time saver and back saver!
