Our house has wood front steps. Last week it rained and then froze overnight- those steps were WAY slippery! We need to do something about this before winter arrives, and I want to find a solution that minimizes the use of de-icer because we have plant beds on either side of the steps.
I ordered the ones below, made of rubber, but they arrived today and they won't work. They are smooth-backed and so slide right off the steps. There is optional adhesive on the back, but it's pretty wimpy and clearly won't stick to the unfinished wood for long. So back to Amazon they go.
Any thoughts? Should I look into grit tape and that kind of thing?
