Mounting RoboClaws wheel spikes

In order to increase traction wheel spikes can be mounted.

There are two YardForce spikes on Amazon (and other sites like Etsy): Mibrobo and RoboClaws. This photo guide is about RoboClaws.

In short:

  • remove wheels
  • (optionally) pre-drill holes, but people reported success even without that
  • attach spikes from inside
  • assemble back


  • much better traction on grass
  • noise on paving
  • probable damage to tiles
