Introduction: No Slip Eyeglass Wedgees on the Cheap

Picture of No Slip Eyeglass Wedgees on the Cheap

Many years ago my husband figured out a way to keep his glasses from slipping down his nose while he was working.  He has used this method ever sense.  It is cheap,  fast,  and easy.  This tutorial is how he solved this problem. I found one place that sells Wedgees and they run about 6 dollars a pair. .

Step 1: Supplies

What you will need:
  • 2 pencil pillows
  • Double sided Scotch Tape ( regular tape will work)
My husband likes the longer versions the best but we can't find them in our area.  He buys his at the Dollar store.  

Step 2: Method

How to attach:

Slip the pencil pillows over the ear pieces.
Adjust where they are comfortable.
Eyeball where to wrap the tape.
Remove the pencil pillows.

Step 3:

The pencil pillows last for a long time.  An occasional cleaning is necessary unless you just just want to replace them.  He is very happy with the results.  

Thank you for stopping by and please have a Happy Fall!

We (you and me) are a little similar, in that we are always thinking a thing to make more comfortable the life.

I am sorry if this is a repeat but for some reason some of my comments are not listing under the reply's. Did you receive a notice as I would like to know so I am not re-sending a reply. I agree! I am still thinking about your camera!

sunshiine, that happened to me too the other day. One comment took five tries to stick. Maybe a bug in the site, or try another browser. Anyway, what a creative use for a basic office supply!

Thanks susanrm for commenting! Hope your Thanksgiving was awesome!

Yes, some comments go to the wrong site. Do not worry about the strap of my camera, still a long way for the holidays. In addition, I can live anyway ;)
