Hi

I have an old pair of charlet moser m10 crampons. The anti snow bale plates have disintegrated. Any idea how I get replacement plates? Thanks

I always make my own out of ice cream carton plastic or those flexible chopping board sheets. Seem to last about twenty routes.  Cut to shape, punch holes, tie with tiwraps or fusewire.

Or try just duct tape if you can't be bothered.

There are some "universal" ones around too. I'm not convinced they're essential if you're experienced and have flat framed crampons .

I have M10s and once upon a time they had OEM anti-balling plates.  they perished and died quickly.  I've been making my own out of bleach bottle plastic for years.  Held on with cable ties and bits of  coat-hanger wire.  They last for ages. It's best if they're a bit oversize, which makes them pop a bit.  Make a cardboard template and then get busy.  They take about half an hour to make.  Bleach bottle plastic is as tough as you like, and available in many colours, although my current ones are a rather dull white.  The next iteration will be purple, but some time next year at this rate

All good. I'm sure they're Charlet Moser originals. Presumably just old stock knocking around in a warehouse somewhere in Europe. My winter climbing frequency can't really justify new crampons but I was prepared to push the boat out for new anti-botts rather than gaffer tape which all my other spikes had/have.
