You know the diamond plate can be slick, especially wet. The ramp on my trailer is diamond and I’ve fallen out of it rolling rugs up it, with customers help of course!!

Matt. Do nonskid like we do on ships.

Paint it with enamel and sprinkle coarse sand on the wet paint. When it is dry, blow the excess sand off and paint a second coat over it to lock in the sand.
Done.

Mask off areas you don’t want non skid, or to make an attractive pattern. Let it cure completely before using. I’d recommend using a hardner to speed it up. Any paint store.

It will last a few years and can always be renewed for next to nothing.

Sticky tread tape is also cheap. Welded treads are not. Both can develop unseen corrosion underneath which is difficult to access. Just do it my way and name your next legitimate child “Stephen.”

Allot of times my shoes are wet from my prespray on the carpet, making it even more slippery. I don't think any of that stuff will help.

Could I get marine carpet (hopefully black) to adhere to this?
How are your shoes still wet from prespray when you get the van?

And I thought I used a lot of prespray.
