    Identify this key

    No urgency on this question - just bugging me, so I gots to know what it is. It came w/ a set of Well-go M3 pedals:



    This is my first set of clipless pedals, so it's a learning experience. I didn't need it to install/remove anything...

    I think it is for putting spikes on your shoes. It looks identical to something I saw with someone's running shoes. However, I would imagine that bit to come with the shoes, not the pedals....

    This brought back memories of skatekeys! Anyone remember those?
    You don't read my signature anyway, do you?

    Maybe a pedal axle removal tool? Shimano used to include a tool for that with new pedals. Now you have to buy it separately.

    It also might be for adjusting axle bearing play on the pedals, removing an axle outer end cap or adjusting the cleat release tension.

    Not sure why that came with your pedals, was it new in the box?
    I have some wrenches that look like that, they came with my soccer shoes. The ones with replaceable cleats.
