Never shovel snow again with Heated Traction Mats

by Ally

It’s not quite time for winter gadgets just yet, but this particular gadget might take a little saving up to get, so it’s probably best if you come across it now. The traction mat is made to sit outside all winter long and whenever it begins to snow you flip it on. It then heats up and will melt snow off of your walkway. Which means no more back breaking shoveling of snow. For some this is just another tool to be lazy with, but for those with back problems or the elderly this gadget would be extremely helpful.

Not everyone has slave laborers children to shovel the walkway every time it snows. The mat can melt up to 2” of snow per hour, so you might run into issues if a blizzard heads your way. Also you have to flip it on before the snowfall starts, so it’ll work better if you’re the type that watches the weather closely. The mat is a bit pricey, for 15′ long x 24” wide it will cost you $1,099. The longer and wider you want the mat the more it’s going to cost.

I imagine that the water from the melting snow will run down to my curb and turn in to ice. So when I step off of my sidewalk i’ll break my leg. Hurray! neato idea though.
