The Problem With Shoelaces

Introduction: The Problem With Shoelaces

Someone already struggling with the tragedy of losing a hand, or even an entire arm, should not be embarrassed or have to stress about trying to do something as simple as tying a shoe.

Step 1: Make the Knot

Take the two laces and cross one over the other, then fold that one underneath. Pull to tighten down.

Step 2: Using the Device

Take the device and put the laces through the bottom. The device should be at the bottom near the knot.

Step 3: Make a Loop

Take one lace and feed it through the top of one of the outside holes to make a loop.

Step 4: Repeat

Repeat step number 3 on the other side.

Step 5: Knot Number Two

Cross one of the loops over the other and then pull through the bottom.

Step 6: Tighten Down

Use your hand to tighten down the knot created.

Step 7: Remove the Device

Take the laces out of the holes and slide the device over the knot.

Step 8: Repeat, If Necessary

Repeat steps 1-7 on the other shoe, if needed.
