They are a strange thing that is meant to do something useful (I cant even remember what- maybe protect the bar connecting the front and back of the crampon, or maybe reduce its chance of falling out), but ends up collecting water and speeding up the rusting of one’s crampons (so certainly store with accordions off). They are also extra weight. So I do not use them.

Also, what Aimee said: Therefore it might help to crampon hobos?
