How to fit

1)Identify the front and rear of your crampons; the rear is signed by the inscription “BACK“. Lead the elastic through the front of the shoe, making sure, that the spikes of the spiked plate are pointing outwards and not towards the sole of the shoe. There is no difference between the left and right crampon.

2 VERY IMPORTANT! )The front part of the micro-crampon´s tread may get stuck in the tread of the shoe. In this case they must be carefully accompanied towards the middle of the shoe (drawing 2) so that the front part of the micro crampon is correctly fitted.

3) Grab the back of the coloured elastomer with both hands and carefully pull towards the heel so that the micro crampon is fully fitted. It is important to check that there are no connecting parts between the elastomer and the tread on the edge of the sole (danger of breakage).

4+5) Complete the fit by pulling the back of the elastomer upwards so that it is at least 1 cm above the edge of the shoe. If this does not happen, the size of the micro crampon may not be the correct one. If the micro crampon has been fitted correctly, all parts of the tread will be correctly tensioned. To remove the micro crampon, perform the fitting steps in reverse.
