Designed to be worn for quick, easy accessibility Frabill Ice Picks help you pull yourself back on the ice in case of an accidental submersion. Hold the handles while putting on your jacket or parka. The retractable cord slides through the arms, across your back, and out the cuff. 72" stretchable cord connects the pair of retractable, handheld spikes. Spikes are kept free and clear inside a sheath, only activating with downward pressure.
