If a picture is worth a 1000 words, then video, seeing how things actually work must be invaluable. Please review the few videos of the piksafe in use and how it is assembled

The video below contrasts both an unshielded pick in actual use to the Piksafe shielded pick in use. In slow-mo the debris spray is even more graphic.

The PikSafe can be put on a pick/mattock within seconds. Turn the tool upside down, tap the tool head off, position the PikSafe on the toolhead, and drop the completed tool head assembly unto the handle. That simple. Simple as 1, 2, 3. (You can also view assembly here)
