Default Make your Own Tiger Ice Cleat

Hi All,

When I first heard about the Tiger having ice cleats I decided to make one myself until I could find an affordable one.

Here is what I made - purely from photographs and dimensions from my Track Links:











Made out of Plywood - Even the locking parts works as it should, correct with two springs.

I added Filler to give it a more realistic shape which has since been sanded down and smoothed off.

This Cleat has now been spray-painted and looks much better.
Needs to be aged a bit as it looks too new.

I know it's way off looking like a real one - but from a distance

If you can't get hold of a real one - have a go at making one

Kind regards,

Pete.
