Italian term or phrase: punte di sicurezza
The term appears in a list of sport items, as follows:
palle da hockey, protezione per pattini, copertine per pattini e punte di sicurezza, protezioni per portieri....

The question is whether it refers to pattini or not.

We have done a lot of web and soul searching, to no avail.

Help much appreciated, with a certain element of urgency.
