    Following a near miss on wet steps I decided to fit some anti-slip tread tape on the treads .

    I nearly went down on my back .. fortunately I caught the grab handle..but I still managed to strain my back..

    Most will have seen this already either in industry or on stairs in offices.. or have it on the van steps already..

    not just anti-slip it also makes the treads more visible at night..

    plenty on ebay.. I bought this one.. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Safety-An...2006?var=&clk_rvr_id=841958082887&mfe=sidebar

    fast delivery.. I fitted some today..

    I used meths to clean the treads before fixing the tape..

    Good idea, mine had already got some anti slip on which peeled off, I bought some skate board grip from eBay, worked a treat

    This is exactly what I need for the top of my rear bumper - it doubles as the rear step and is treacherous on frosty mornings. I'm going to order some of the plain black version.

    Hey Jim.
    You've got it on the wrong way round! Diagonals should go the other way!:crying:
    You'll need to do it again!:doh:
    Tee hee.:giggle:
