Frabill Ice Picks are designed to be literally worn, not tucked away in a pocket and inaccessible. The 72 inches of stretchable cord connect the two retractable hand-held spikes. The spikes are covered by a durable guard only activating with downward pressure when needed.
The picks are used in the unfortunate event that you should happen to break through the ice. The Frabill Ice Picks are used to dig into the ice to help you pull yourself out of the freezing water.
