These are surface mounted 3 foot panel tire spikes that come in both “latch-down” and “non-latch” versions. The “latch down” allows you to lock the spikes in the down position to temporarily allow traffic flow in both directions. The standard model uses quarter inch hot-rolled steel for extreme durability and is designed to endure the use of cars, trucks, and personal operation vehicles. They are also available in 3/8″ steel plates for situations where semi-trucks and other heavy axel load equipment will be the primary vehicles crossing the control spikes. Unlike some of our competitors, we supply the full kit needed for installation.

- Install the tire poppers perpendicular to traffic flow. If vehicles cross the traffic spikes at an angle other than 90 degrees the spikes may cause damage to sidewalls of tires.
- The top speed at which a car may cross the installed tire spike is 7 MPH. At speeds over the 7 MPH, excessive wear of the spikes, top plate and internal springs will likely result.
- The tire spikes should be installed in a location where water is least likely to drain into the unit. Having adequate drainage under the unit is recommended.
- Make sure the system is not installed on a slope so as to avoid vehicles accidentally rolling back into the spikes.
- Keep pedestrians away from the tire poppers.
- Maintenance should be performed periodically to the system to ensure that debris is not accumulating inside of the unit.
- It is recommended to have a clear sign warning of the system’s presence and potential tire damage
