If you are doing research before joining the more than 80,000 customers that have rented our camping and travel gear, or have already received your camping gear rental package from us, here's the page to learn a bit more about the setup and operation of a specific travel or camping equipment before you head out on your next trip.
The ice cleats we rent are the lowest-cost options for increasing safety while king on slick ice. We have 2 styles - one is on a buckle style strap like shown here, and some strap on with an elastic band.
Place around the forefront of your shoe as shown here. Make sure they are snug so they don't slip off. The 4 pointed edges dig into ice and are very effective at keeping you from slipping. If there is just one pair of these but 2 people need them, split the pair up between the 2 so each hiker has a cleat on one foot - even that is a big improvement over nothing at all. You will want to remove the cleats as soon as you get to an ice-free area.
