"With the winter will slip and accidents. Many uses of the finished spikes but inventive Kjell Åberg, 77, " tips on how to make your own slip resistance – with just three components."
"– With this idea I go very safe. I do not slip a centimeter, " he says."
"If the winter allows the ice to come all of a sudden. It was the pensioner Kjell Åberg, 77, from Forshaga aware of the last winter. During a bike ride on the Klarälvsbanan he would stop to answer the phone but when he put the foot down, slid it aside, and he injured the shoulder. The long recovery that followed caused him to think about it."
"– It was, so I came up with the idea to make your own slip resistance. I cycle and walk a lot, even in winter but it is very good, " says Kjell Åberg."
"According to him is the ”ordinary” broddarna not good enough. They are clumsy, not suited to go on the ice and some models need to be taken by public transport, says Kjell. As the inventor he is, he looked to combine gravel, glue and shoes to get the ultimate halkskyddet."
" I warmed up the gravel on a baking sheet in the oven so that it was completely dry. The sole of the foot must also be completely dry, so the shoes I put on a radiator. I then used the wax that attach at both the rubber and the stone, " he says."
"the Gravel was pressed firmly against the glued sole, and then he let it dry over night. In the morning had to be brushed abundance away, and then he could venture out and go non-slip."
"– With this idea I go very safe. I have tested it for a week and has been on the ice at the Klarälvsbanan. I do not slip one inch, and the gravel is sitting as the rock, " he says."
"After cykelolyckan he has been extra careful. That is why he wants to share the trick which is primarily provided for the elderly."
"– When you get up in this age, you become extra sensitive, it takes a long time to heal if you hurt. Can I help someone to go for sure so it is good, " he says and continues:"
"– Could it be that a part of the gravel to disappear, so it is just to glue on more."
