Panther Spikes Tree climbers consist of 4 main parts.
Hook,
Gaffs,
Shell
and Binding.
 
The main supporting element is a hook, which is made of a special aluminum alloy. After several heat treatments, it has parameters that guarantee maximum safety for the user. 

The second supporting element are three types of gaffs. All are cast from alloy steel (Cr, Ni, Mo). After thread cutting and subsequent heat treatment, when the gaffs are tempered to a value of 1000-1200 MPa, they are screwed to the hook with a pair of M8 screws. These screws are tightened to a value of 25N / m and a layer of glue is applied to them, which prevents their spontaneous loosening. The gaffs are shaped so that they allow the leather or synthetic strap to be pulled through the gap, which ensures the stability of the foot in the area of ​​the ankle. 


The third element is the shell. It is made of several layers of glass fabric and reinforced with a strip of carbon fabric. The holes in it allow this support to be moved according to the user´s needs. The shell is attached to the hook with a pair of M6 screws. The calf support, pad, is attached to this shell with the help of velcro.  This is shaped longitudinally to provide maximum comfort to the user.


The leg is attached to the hook with either textile stripes with velcro or a leather or synthetic strap.

Holes for extending leg length in shell at 2cm increments
