From a June 5, 2017 article in the Dawson Creek Mirror:
Local Entrepreneur and Rotarian of the year Frank Ripley is helping the world march towards a future free of polio.
Ripley has joined Rotary past district Governor Tim Schilds to help children with Polio through their immunization program.
Ripley—inventor of the wildly popular Rip’s Ice Cleats—is donating a portion of the profits from each pair of cleats sold to support the End Polio Now Program.
The money raised goes towards immunizing children from Polio.

Safety Comes First
Everyday we strap on our safety vests, hardhats, safety gloves and more. Rips Cleats™ protect your entire body and save you from falls and slips on ice!
Hundreds are injured daily
The stats are alarming…hundreds of people are injured (many critically) when slipping on ice and snow. Injuries range from scrapes to broken hips and backs.
Fall Injuries involving Seniors are brutal
Seniors cannot afford to slip or fall on ice. Although many of our clients in industry use our products, seniors cannot be forgotten as falls / slips are devastating.
Injuries Cost Money…its that simple
The cost of having an employee injured on the job slipping on ice is expensive. The reality is the cost of ice cleats are miniscule compared to a long term medical claim.
Paramedics and First Aid Workers
Carrying patients up and down ice covered stairs and driveways is a fact of life. Attending automobile crashes and trying to negotiate slippery roads is risky!
Everyday, Farmers and Ranchers risk falls and slips in the yard, while heading to the barn or corral and simply walking out to the tractor. Farms need Rips Cleats™ this winter.
Customized for every industry
For many clients, the Sharps and Blunts are perfect. If you walk on floors or in and out of buildings, the Blunts are perfect. Need some Cleats that are spark resistant? Check out our Cermac or Beryllium Copper.
