Spike Key - Steelex Hexagonal
This spike key fits spikes with a hexagonal base (Steelex). It has a screwdriver-style handle which is very easy to use. The narrow tip ensures it should fit on spikes in deep sockets surrounded by raised 'pimples' on the sole of the shoe.
Hexagonal spikes are much easier to remove or install than standard spikes, as their sides are flat all round and therefore easy to grip on with the special key.
To keep your spikes in great condition:
- Remove spikes and lubricate the thread periodically.
- Spikes should not be inserted with great force as this rounds off the flat sides.
- This also enables you to see the need to change worn spikes before they cannot be removed.
