Can you use this spikes on any tree, and palms too?
1 Answer
Generally, tree-length gaffs are reserved for removal jobs and tree with thicker bark, and when climbing palm trees most of our customers use pole-length (shorter) gaffs.

Comfortable and Steady

Fairly easy to assemble and once in them they made me feel comfortable when climbing my first tree. Very sturdy and durable.

If you put the pads on the wrong spurs they will start to slip back.
  • Easy to use and comfortable.
  • None that I have come across.

Buckingham Tree Climbers and Super Pads
April 12, 2021
I am not new to tree work, but brand new to climbing and I wanted to learn how, and part of the job is a quality set of spikes.
Buckingham is the name that kept coming up as the ones to get, that and most of the people I work with have them.
Second time up a tree with them I felt comfortable as could be. They take a bit to get used to, and there is a learning curve Iím still in, but I didnít gaff out once.
The one thing I would do differently, is get pole spurs instead of the tree spurs, or in addition to tree spurs in case a longer spur is needed.
The super pads are comfortable, and I expect they will get even better over time and use.
Westech Rigging Supply had them in stock and got them to my door, on the other side of the country in on time as promised. Price was right too. I will be ordering some pole spurs from them soon.
  • Great price, well made, comfortable.
  • Pole spurs might have been a better option for smooth bark trees.
