Shredded shoelace is very boring and disgusting, but it is very simple, cheap and fast to fix, following the simple steps:

Step 1: Stay Calm and Do Not Pull the Thread!

You will need to fix the shoelace:

- Cellophane tape roll

- Scissors

Step 2: Starting to Put the Tape at the Shoelace

Leave a space and start the tape wound around the soelace

Step 3: After Many Passes, Cut the Tape

Step 4: Trim Off the Excess

Step 5: Your Shoelace Is Fixed!

<p>This is a good fix. Heat shrinking tubes also make good aglets. :)</p>
<p>Aglets: The name of the thingy on the end of a lace that no-one knows :)</p><p>You can also buy crimpable metal ferrules (another good word) which you could use for this.</p>
<p>Cool! Thanks for help with the name, because I am brazilian and neither in portuguese I knew the name :)</p>
<p>Lol, no problem. Most people don't know what it's called. I freely admit the only reason I remember is the <a href="">song from Phineas and Ferb</a>. Once you hear it, it will be stuck in your head forever. </p>
<p>Indeed! Thanks</p>
<p>also a quick blast on the end with a lighter will heat seal the loose threads if no other items are to hand</p>
<p>True. Don't use superglue though. I tried that once to &quot;crisp up&quot; the end. It got VERY hot and smoked out noxious fumes. </p><p>Sometimes superglue and fabrics just don't get on well :(</p>
<p>its true</p>
<p>Sorry, but in this case, the thread is made with cotton and it is no possible to apply fire</p>
