Since you’ve found this page, you may have heard by now that Lock Laces® are “elastic no-tie shoelaces.” But what does that mean, exactly — and how do they work? Check out our new Installation page by clicking here
We get that question a lot, and it’s really quite simple: you replace your shoelaces with Lock Laces®, and then you can slip your shoes on and off with one hand — no more tying! And if you’d like to tighten or loosen them, Lock Laces® have easily adjustable tension – just give ‘em a pull and go!
If that was too fast for you, just keep reading and we’ll teach you everything you need to know about Lock Laces®!
Out with the old and in with the new!
You can put Lock Laces® in most lace-up tennis shoes or sneakers in just 5 minutes. Simply take out your existing shoelaces, replace them with our elastic laces with your feet in the shoes, trim them to fit and lock them into place with the fastening system.
Our proprietary trim-to-fit design makes Lock Laces® a one-size-fits-all for both kids and adults. That’s right — grandma and grandpa wear the same size as the kids! As a matter of fact, we guarantee that Lock Laces® will fit in your lace-up shoes. If they don’t, just let us know, and we’ll do everything we can to find a solution.

Forget Velcro – turn any shoe into a slip-on!
Once you’ve installed your Lock Laces®, you can treat your shoes like slip-ons. The elastic laces will stretch when you put your foot in the shoe (so you won’t damage the heel), and the fastening system will keep your laces at the perfect tension. If you suffer from arthritis or have trouble bending over, Lock Laces® will give you your independence back. And you won’t have to wear Velcro shoes!
Unlike traditional cotton laces, our elastic laces will stretch as your feet swell throughout the day. This improves circulation and keeps your feet comfortable no matter what.
Sometimes you need to tighten up your laces and get down to business!
Lock Laces’® fastening system makes it easier than ever to dial up your tension before a run or sporting event and loosen up to give your feet some space to breathe afterwards.
Simply press down on the lock device to open the passages and slide to tighten or loosen. That’s it — no more double (or triple) knots!
