It’s been quite mild this winter so far, which is rather worrying. We’ve been chatting about this weird weather at Eazi-Stops and have come up with a conclusion, it’s going to be freezing any time soon! This means sleet, snow, frost and ice and it also means the roads will be full of grit and salt ready to cause damage to your car. You can avoid this though by introducing helicopter tape to the paintwork, here’s what you need to know.
It’s tough and strong: Helicopter tape was originally designed to protect aircraft from damage, it was fitted to a variety of aircraft parts and helped to protect planes from impact damage caused during flight. The benefits of this strong and durable product were plain to see and today it is used to protect paintwork on vehicles and bikes to keep their bodywork in perfect condition.
It’s easy to fit: You don’t require any specialist skills to apply helicopter tape to the bodywork of your car, it’s simple to apply and totally transparent, once it’s on people don’t even know it’s there. You do though, and it gives you a sense of satisfaction knowing your car’s bodywork is protected from road salt, grit and stone chips caused by high speed driving on the motorway.
It’ll last as long as you want: You can leave the protective tape on your car for as long as you like, use it throughout the winter months to protect paintwork from salty road conditions or apply it and keep it on your car throughout the year.
It’s easy to take off again: When you no longer want to use the protective film it removes just as easily and you are left with pristine paintwork. This is a bonus if you are trying to sell the vehicle. Buyers will be amazed at the condition of the car. They won’t know you had a little help in that department and they certainly wouldn’t guess you had applied helicopter tape to your car!
Like the idea of riding your bike during the winter? Most cyclists don’t but they have no other option, use a bike to commute to work for example and you’ll have to brave the elements at some point. One our earlier blogs covered the subject of protecting your bicycle over the winter but how do you ride it safely when it’s -50C outside? Don’t fret, our guide to riding in the winter should keep you safe right through to spring.
Be seen: Winter mornings and evenings tend to be darker, once the clocks go back it’ll start to go dark from about 3.30pm onwards. This presents added dangers so you need to be seen when you are riding your bike. Equip the front and back of the bike with lights and wear a reflective bib when you are riding, make other motorists aware of your presence.
Wrap up well: It can get pretty nippy when you are riding your bike in the winter so wear plenty of layers to keep the chills at bay. Waterproof clothing will be useful and so will a skull cap under your helmet, a scarf and pair of gloves too. If it’s really bitter outside you might want to consider wearing thermal under layers to prevent the frost from nipping at your nether regions.
Ride with caution: Extra care needs to be taken when you are riding on snow or ice, you have to extra vigilant in poor weather conditions. Ride slower than you would normally, don’t turn as sharply and be careful near manhole covers, potholes and other hazards that could cause you to take a tumble. Good balance is essential during wintry conditions and try to keep as much weight as possible on the back wheel to give the bike plenty of grip.
Keep on top of maintenance: Clean your lights regularly, check to see your mudguards are secure, clean and oil your chain on a frequent basis. Look at tyre condition, make sure there’s plenty of air in the tubes and keep your brakes in good condition as well. Give the bike a winter service before the worst of the wintry weather hits and it’ll be in good shape to ride whatever the weather has in store.

Protective rubber feet are perfect for a wide range of uses and we like to think our feet are some of the best in the industry. If you are stuck for ideas of where to put our rubber feet though read this article and it’ll tell you neat places to stick the feet.
Furniture: Stick rubber feet to the bottom of wooden legs on tables or chairs and they’ll protect carpets and wooden floors. Stop chairs screeching across the floor with the simple to use feet and you’ll prevent surface scratches from appearing on real wood, laminate or vinyl floors. Rubber feet are great for drawer fronts, just stick them on the reverse side to prevent the drawer from slamming into the frame. You can use them on kitchen doors as well, just pop them on the back and the doors will close much gentler in the future.
Lamps: Attach a few rubber feet to the base of lamps to stop them from scratching wooden table tops. Give your lamp a little lift and provide the base with a cushion that can be placed on a variety of surfaces.
Glass sheets: Rubber feet are useful for glass covers on desks, chests of drawers and coffee tables too. Place the feet on the underside of the glass to raise it slightly and stop the surface underneath from becoming scratched.
Cooker covers: Got a cover on your hob that makes a clunk when it closes? Place rubber feet on the frame of the cover and you can close the lid without a sound in the future. Rubber bumpers are brilliant for cushioning noise on a wide range of products and cooker covers are the perfect example of where they can be used.
Laptop lid: Slam a laptop shut whenever you have finished surfing online? Prevent this problem with rubber feet, close the lid with care from now on and prevent accidental damage to the computer.

Our Chainstay Plus, Road and Mountain bike kits are extremely effective at preventing damage caused by abrasion, erosion, minor impact, and fluids. Completely transparent, UV resistant and self healing we produce the best in bicycle frame protection tape.
More importantly it is fast and easy to apply using just a sqeegee and a light spray. We recommend a small spray bottle (about 100-150ml with a fine mist nozzle) filled with water and 3-5 drops of baby shampoo mixed in to reduce the surface tension so it’s easier to squeegee out from under the tape.
