In the latter weeks of December 2013, Handi-Ramp sent off a shipment of non slip tread kits to an Amazon Canada fulfillment center with the goal of selling said tread kits to the citizens of Canada, saving them on the high cost of shipping and transit time.

Amazon FBA deliveryWhen Amazon first offered their Prime service at an additional cost in the United States in 2005, Amazon’s intention was to offer the customer a free 2nd day shipping upgrade by shipping the product(s) directly from their warehouses.  Also available is the ability to request overnight shipping for a discounted fee.

The Prime membership became so popular in the U.S. that Amazon expanded the program to another 6 countries; Canada in early 2013.  With Handi-Treads now available on the shelves of an Amazon FBA warehouse, what’s not to love?

Prime customers are able to place an order for our tread kits and within 2 business days will have their package delivered with contents carefully packaged.  Since the kits will already be in Canada, there’s no need for a customer to pay excessive shipping or customs charges, saving quite a bit of money.

This sounds great, but how will Handi-Treads benefit me?

Well, the most important reason is to prevent unnecessary slips and falls. There’s no worse feeling slipping on a set of stairs or a ramp and bruising a hip, breaking an arm, knocking out some teeth, or visiting the hospital.  Non slip aluminum treads have been tested and proven to outlast both non slip grit tape and grip without any special care or maintenance.  Prefer to move them?  No problem!  Our aluminum treads do not utilize a sticky residue, allowing you to simply unscrew the hardware included and lift.  That’s it!

Handi-Ramp has made purchasing tread kits in Canada hassle-free by offering them thru Amazon’s FBA program, saving time and money.

After months of preparation and planning, non slip treads by Handi-Ramp are now officially available thru Amazon’s FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) Canada program.

What does that mean? For those current and potential customers located in Canada you no longer have to pay excessive shipping and handling fees to receive your product, or will you need to wait upwards of a week to receive your treads.

As of Friday, December 20th two listings became active on Amazon.ca in which Canadian residents are now able to purchase a 3 pack or 5 pack non slip treads, the hardware to mount them, and specific instructions (Handi-Ramp calls these "kits"). Each kit is available to be purchased thru the Amazon FBA program which offers customers free two day shipping with Prime membership, or overnight shipping for an additional cost.

Again, no longer will Canadian customers need to pay for the international shipping (which by the way does not include duties and taxes) and wait upwards of a week to receive their product. Now with one click, customers can purchase a kit and receive them anywhere in Canada within just a few business days!

Non slip treads are designed to reduce/prevent people from unnecessary slips and falls on wood surfaces (decks, porches, stairs, boardwalks, marinas, boat docks, etc). Treads feature our unique raised-button surface which creates the instant traction, saving family and friends from injuries and trips to the emergency room. Non-skid treads can be mounted in any weather condition and will not fade/peel like non slip grit tape or grip paint, which needs to be replaced every few months.

For any questions regarding the FBA program or how treads work, please call (800) 876-7267 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

It’s still icy cold in Canada – perfect for non slip treads, whereas Chicagoans are finally celebrating the 54 degree temps that have swung to our neck of the woods in time for Easter. Meanwhile, in some regions of Canada it is still a bitter cold 9F, including Toronto where blustery, icy weather still mingles. These conditions, while imperfect and far from ideal weather are perfect for our non slip HandiTreads. HandiTreads help beat the ice and cold on stairs by increasing traction.

Snow on treadsHandiTreads provide traction with a unique, proprietary button surface on even the most slippery surfaces including stairs, ramps, and other inclines. Our non slip aluminum treads they are superior to other non slip treads because they will never fade or wear out, saving you money by annually replacing grit tape or grip paint. Non slip treads are easy to install and come with a lifetime residential guarantee.

Can I get HandiTreads in Canada? Are they available?
Each week our company receives multiple freight quote requests to Canada regarding our treads, and much of the time sales are lost due to high international shipping costs or long transit. For a solution, both Handi-Ramp and Amazon have been in talk’s to send our plain aluminum non slip tread (item no. NST-100) to a fulfillment center in Canada in hopes of reaching those potential customers and grow awareness about our non slip tread product. With the help of Amazon or another distributor in Canada we will be able to ship to Canada at a lower cost.
