Are you searching for a sure-fire way to remove stripped spikes from track shoes? Even the most stubborn or neglected spikes will respond to a few simple tricks, but many of the most common methods require that you pack along tools to get the job done. When you tire from having to carry heavy tools in your athletic bag, consider switching to Needle Eye Spikes and you’ll never need another mechanic’s tool again. Needle Eye steel replacement spikes are designed with a hole that the removal tool fits neatly into for an easy twist on and twist off motion.
Stripped Spike Removal 101
Step One: Using a quality store-bought silicone spray, saturate the perimeter of the spike and keep the shoe in an upside-down position for 5 minutes. Don’t try and remove the spike until the full 5 minutes have elapsed. This method is considered one of the best ways to remove stripped replacement track spikes that won’t turn using conventional means.
Step Two: Using the side of a wrench or a small hammer, tap on the side of the spike until you notice some movement beginning to take place. Continue tapping for as long as it takes, repeating step one if necessary. Within 10-15 minutes, you should see that the spike is beginning to separate from the shoe. Don’t skip this important step because it’s key in getting the silicone spray to penetrate down to the bottom of the spike.
Step Three: Take a pair of needle-nose pliers and grip the sides of the stripped spike, then, with a gentle pulling action, begin to twist the spike in a counter-clockwise motion until the spike begins to come out. You can almost always remove stripped track spikes and deeply embedded spikes using replacement spike wrenches and pliers.
