SPD SH51 Cleat Alignment Tool

This tool is designed to adjust with SH51 Shimano SPD mountain bike cleats.  The tool grabs the cleat and then can be aligned on left and right shoes with a Shimano TL-FC32 BB tool as shown in the picture (not included).

Directions for use:

With the cleats installed on on your shoes loosen the two retaining screws slightly.  Slide the tool over the cleat on the left shoe and adjust the rotation to the desired position.  Then mark that location on the sole of the shoe at the tool’s pointer.  Then repeat the process on the right shoe until the indicator of the tool lines up to a similar location as the mark on the left.  Then mark the right shoe at the the indicator and compare the left and right marks to make sure they are in the same relative location on the sole.

The tool is available in black and works with a Shimano TL-FC32 BB tool sold separately.  Please purchase your new SPD cleat alignment tool at shapeways today.
