What is the difference between rugby boots and soccer cleats?

My rugby boots are heavier and sturdier than my soccer cleats. Depending on the position you play, some of the boots go higher up the ankle instead of soccer cleats that cut off just below it. Also, rugby boots have around 10 studs whereas soccer cleats have about 16, give or take.

Can changing from running shoes to running shoes with track spikes damage my legs or feet?

Changing from running in regular workout shoes to track spikes can cause Achilles tendon problems. Your Achilles tendon, sometimes called the calcaneal tendon, connects your calf muscles to your heel bone. A slow onset of pain that increases with exertion is likely to be tendonitis, whereas a sudden pain may be a partial or complete Achilles' tendon rupture. Achilles' tendons injuries are slow to heel and, in the case of ruptures, can even require surgery.

Can I use my track spikes to train on hard surfaces such as cement?

It is not advised to use your track spikes on hard surfaces for a number of reasons, firstly it will ruin them, a hard surface will wear down the spikes, secondly the spikes do not support the foot so it could cause problems with the foot area also the spikes would not penetrate the surface which could make it very slippery - do not use your track spikes on a hard surface.

Need to find replacement for broken belt/track.

Belts for cleated tracks are no longer available from arctic cat. You will have to find a used belt on EBAY, at a salvage yard, or upgrade to a rubber track. An Arctic dealer can look up pieces needed to upgrade to rubber track from the old accessory parts listing to do the upgrade. You will need to replace your drive sprockets and possibly the drive axle to run a rubber track with out cleats.

What is the correct way to place the nails into the gun? This gun uses both cleats and staples. I am using cleats but it does not seem to be working. I may be putting the cleats in wrong.

If you have a Bostitch MIII FN it is only for cleats. Bostitch doesn't make a universal nailer that takes staples and cleats. The MIIIFN is the "floor nailer" and the Model MIIIFS is the "floor stapler"
Maybe check exactly what model you have and ensure you are not trying to put cleats into a stapler.

I have a central pheumatic stapler model 99640. When I used it, it shot out 2 'L' shape cleat (16G, 2") at the same time instead of 1 cleat. I tried to minimize the gap for the mouth, it end up jamed....

I have noticed that some nailers with this problem have a driver blade that is slightly wider than the width of the cleat thus allowing the driver to actually hit part of the second cleat in the strip. To fix problem the driver blade should be slightly trimmed or tapered. File/grind the driver only on the side facing the cleats. Remove only enough metal to allow driver to hit only one cleat. Taper the grind up about 1/2 inch. This tapering is used on many different drivers including fraiming nailers to prevent the driver from hitting second nail on strip (mainly clip head nails). Only other remedy is to find thicker guage cleats that will still fit thru nose. Good luck with your repair

Can't fit the cleats to MO76 shoes. Instruction

assuming your using Shimano pedal cleats?

You should have on the bottom of the shoe 4 threaded holes showing.
(if not then you will need to check the shoe box as sometimes they need to be fitted)

The cleat should be placed directly on top of this... with the point facing towards the front of the shoe.
You then need to place the OO plate on top of the cleat and place the crews in making sure the cleat is positioned straight.

Once tightened then place the cleat on the pedal and make sure its position is correct and your shoe is sitting straight then re-tighten.

hope this helps.
