      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Adjusting Toe Bails (BD Sabretooth SS)

Recommended Posts

Are the toe bails adjustable on BD Sabretooth SS version? I've been climbing in them and notice the two downward tooth set back pretty far so I'm thinking to adjust the toe bails to the second sets of holes. I think I need to hammer them out but just trying to see any tricks to this.

No hammer is required to move the bails to the second set of holes.

To move the bails; line up the flats in the end of the bail wires with the long dimension of the holes (the holes are oval). Do this by rotating the bail towards the rear of the crampon.


I usually just place the crampon on its side, step on the sides of the frontpoints with one foot, and the side of rears with the other. I use the ankle strap around the front bail where it enters the crampon to make it easy to pull on, or you could use a sling; line up the flats in the oval holes and pull. The bail should come right out.
