How are these different from crampons, the devices with the curious and disquieting name?

Ah these are very different, and not nearly as scary as crampons. They even glow in the dark. Think of a giant spring for a ballpoint pen with florescent plastic drawn through the spring. The proper name is "Yaktrax."

I have never owned crampons, but I did have an ice axe in my climbing days unless I'm dreaming.

Crampons are pretty scary.

There is even crampon history.
