Ice ferrules have a metal spike to provide additional grip on snow and ice.
They are usually hinged to allow the spike to be dropped into position, or raised to lie alongside the shaft when not in use.1
Care should be taken when using hinged ice spikes to ensure that the spike does not pose a danger to you or anyone else when in use or when in its resting position. This is particularly important if they are being used by children or adults with reduced sensation in their legs.1View references and sources of further information ›
