Picture lefts is the steel spike that is permanently fitted to the walking sticks be we sell them, this makes it much more stronger than the ice grip ferrule which is perfect for hill walking for hiking. The ferrule is secured with 2 small nails for added strength. The spike can also be placed into a rubber ferrule, which can be purchase, and taken off and on when you need it.
Wrist straps are also a great way of holding onto your walking sticks when you are walking; the adjustable strap makes them fit able to all walking sticks and walking canes. The wrist strap also adds extra support when walking or hiking. They come in two colours brown and black.
In very cold and icy conditions it always important to select the correct walking sticks or walking aids, as you don't want to get a nasty fall. Rubber and steel ferrules don't offer enough support on slippery surfaces and some sort of spike or grip is also needed.
