The Sure Grips work awesome, well built, quality hardware. If you own a sled you should own a set of SURE GRIPS!

I’ve found you get what you pay for and these removable snowmobile ski dollies are worth every penny.

Snow Tech Magazine – “easily move your sled under it’s own power!”

logoMoving Sleds Around?

How do you move a snowmobile when there is no snow on the ground?

Do you just drive them (with little or no steering) across the asphalt, concrete or across the yard? Wouldn’t it be nice to have some wheels on the skis so you could drive around and be able to steer the sled?

Of course it would be. There are a number of sled dollies that fasten to your skis and let you actually drive the machine (slowly) with the wheel lifting the carbide runners up off the snow less -surface your having to deal with.

The SURE GRIP dollies have two axles , four wheels and a cable to keep the wheels on the skis and spindles, allowing you to easily move your sled around under it’s own power

 Vance Willard – “Buy Sure Grips! Don’t mess with China Dollies.”

A friend who owns several sleds and several Sure Grip Dolly’s introduced me to them.  I had just bought sleds and his advice was to buy the Sure Grips and not mess around with cheaper China snowmobile dollies.

Thanks for building quality snowmobile dollies! Thanks for the same day call to verify my order!. Great customer service!

Keep up the work with USA made products and quality!!

Ben Hanson – “I was very impressed”

Ben Hanson, owner of the snowmobile forum writes:


From time to time I had seen the video for the SureGrip dollies, with people ripping around the yard or driving a sled right up into a trailer. Quite honestly I was intrigued, but a bit skeptical. I thought I would give the SureGrips wheel kit a try.

The product showed up promptly in a deceivingly small box. After opening it and looking at the parts I was VERY impressed. The parts were made well, seemed over-engineered (in a good way), and had an excellent fit and finish.

Once the dollies were under the skis I fired up the motor and prepared to back out. I tentatively gave it some gas and backed down the ramp. It backed over the gaps and cracks with ease. In fact, it actually backed out easier and more smoothly than it would without the dollies. The thing I noticed right away was that I was able to actually steer the sled with precision while backing out

After unloading I had fun driving the sled around the driveway in August. The ski dollies never slipped or moved and gave me full steering capability. Once parked in the garage I put the track dolly under the track and was able to rotate the sled around as desired. Loading the sled back in the trailer was as easy, and fun, as unloading.

My past experience was that conventional dollies suffer from some main issues:

1) other sled roller dollies come off the skis easily, having to keep putting them back on.

2) pushing the sled around by hand is the only option that really works well, sometimes requiring a helping hand on steep driveways and such.

5) Sled Roller Wheels that swivel on all three points (skis and track) can actually be difficult to deal with in some situations (poor tracking, etc.)

6) Snowmobile Mover Dollies and wheels are often under-engineered or made of plastic that can crack and break.

Sometimes you come across a product that you really like and are pleased with. Less frequently you find one that you love and wish you had come across years ago. The Sure Grip Sled Dolly System is one of those products!

These Ski Wheels(included but optional track dollie) make the chore of loading, unloading and moving a sled around almost effortless, saving time and your back.

They are extremely well built and worth every penny

Chris White – “These Sled Rollers Work awesome!”

I wanted to write a quick note on how well Sure Grip Dollies work;

These Sled Rollers Work awesome!

Saturday morning and got a call from them Saturday afternoon to confirm my order and answer a few questions, That’s great customer service in my opinion and hard to find nowadays.  Furthermore I even used them to move a sliding glass window we were installing! we put it on the two dollies and pushed it were we needed it!

If you own a sled you should own a set of SureGrip Snowmobile Dollies!


Thanks again,
Chris White


Doug Gower – “Sure Grip knows friendly customer support!”

I have purchased items online for years, but your phone call to me (10 minutes after I had clicked submit) to personally discuss my order and to chat about sledding, is an absolute first. Having a great product is important but this company knows the importance of friendly customer support and service and I am very impressed!

Snow Tech Magazine – “Trailer ramps … can easily be driven right up!”

Snow Tech Magazine had this to say about Suregrip Removable Sled Dollies:

Sled dollies have been around in various forms for many years, but we have found the Sure Grip Steerable Dollies to be the most versatile sets of dollies we’ve ever used.


Anytime we need to move a sled for any distance across anything other than snow, we slide the dollies under each ski, fire up the sled, and drive it!. With the Sure Grip Steerable Dollies, you steer with precision. . The big 5” rubber wheels have proven to be extremely durable in our years of use.Trailer ramps that have any sort of approach angle to the ramp can easily be driven right up, again saving your carbides. The swivel track dolly lets you move your sled around when you don’t need or want to start the engine.

We’ve used the Sure Grip Steerable/Drivable/Removable Dollies for many years, and have found them to be a valuable asset in our shop. many dealers have several sets for running  sleds in and out of their shops.
