    Quick fix cheap hand made toe spikes

    aafettspike-jpgafettspike-jpgafettspike2-pngafettspike1-pngI was bored last night so I started playing around with some left over plastic trash can pieces and a couple of pen tips and made some cheap toe spikes. First I cut a template out of cardboard for the size of the base. I cut that out of some scrap plastic trash can. Trimed and glued a couple of pen tips to it. I've drilled holes for the screws and painted it. Waiting for it to dry and then attaching it to my boot.[IMG]afettspike[/IMG][IMG]afettspike1[/IMG][IMG]afettspike2[/IMG]
