I'd like to to replace the anti-balling plates on my Black Diamond crampons. The current ones are next to useless. I can't remember whether they have always been this bad, or whether they have become worse with age as they have got more scuffed. I can't see my model of crampon available any more (whatever it's called) so not sure what to buy which would be compatible. There's a picture here  http://tinypic.com/r/28tjgya/9

Can anyone help please?

Bump, before I resort to duct tape or similar.

They may have changed the crampons sufficiently over the years that you can't get anti-bots for them any more. I just made some for my G12s, because Grivel have changed them a lot and you can't buy purpose made ones any more. I used a milk jug and zip ties. Worked ok although some zip ties snapped first day out - rocky mixed so took a battering. I've replaced with some slightly bigger zip ties, to see if the last longer. https://flic.kr/p/24bcBNf
