Introduction: How to Use a Sock Aid
This instructable describes the steps for successfully putting your socks on using a sock aid. The supplies necessary for completing this task are the following: a sock aid, socks and a chair (preferably one with arms).
Step 1: Orient the Sock With the Sock Aid
When putting on a sock using a sock aid the bottom of your foot goes along the bottom of the curved plastic. Therefore it is important that the bottom of the sock is the part that is against the plastic when first putting it on.
Step 2: Slide the Sock Over the Sock Aid
Start sliding the sock onto the end of the sock aid which does not have the handles. Some find it is easiest to complete this by squeezing the sock aid in between your legs while you use both hands to slide the sock on.
Step 3: Make Sure the Toe of Sock Is Pulled Tight
Slide the sock all the way onto the sock aid until the sock reaches the strings. Make sure that the toe of the sock is tight against the sock aid.
Step 4: Hold Onto the Rope and Drop the Sock Aid to the Ground
Hold onto the rope using two hands. While still holding onto the rope, drop the sock aid to the ground.
Step 5: Place Foot Into Sock
While still holding onto the rope with both hands, place your foot into the sock so your toes are tight against the toes of the sock.
Step 6: Pull on the Rope and the Plastic of the Sock Aid
Pull on the ropes and the plastic of the sock aid to work the sock onto your foot. You may have to move your foot and leg slightly to help with this process.
Step 7: Adjust Sock As Necessary
Adjust your sock so it sits comfortably on your foot. You have now successfully put on your sock using a sock aid.
