  • 4 solid steel protective discs
  • adds 2-1/4" to height of cabinet
  • supports up to 800 lbs.

What's in the Box:

  • 4 Spike feet

Great add on item for Salamander Designs A5 Archetype. I had no problems installing them securely and they are rock solid anchoring the rack in the carpet. I am not using a turntable for this rack so I can't speak to the stability in that regard.

The spikes threaded loosely to the A5, which added to the instability of the rack. I hear footsteps through my turntable when the spikes are in use.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These spikes are fantastic and really complete the Salamander Archetype audio rack. I'm using them on carpet and it's a wonderful combination. Very heavy duty construction and helps with component isolation. Do yourself a favor and order them the same time your ordering your rack. Could also be used on hardwood flooring with the included pieces to rest the spikes on so no harm comes to your flooring. Very highly recommended. :)

Great addition to Salamander Designs A5 Archetype

Pros: Beefey

Good Spikes

Andrew from Lanham, MD on 9/2/2016

These are solid, large spikes. They were simple to install on my Archetype 5 shelf and they ensure that the shelf stays firm on my carpeted floor. That's all there is to it.

Pros: Great build quality Easy install

Cons: Pricey
