How to Install

Looking for how to put on your new Lock Laces®? You’ve come to the right place. Follow us through this simple 5-minute installation guide and never tie your shoes again™!

Let's Break It Down

Lock Laces make it easy to put shoes on your feet – so we’ve made it easy to put Lock Laces on your shoes. Follow these simple instructions to install your new Lock Laces.

You’ll also need:

  • 1 pair of shoes (or a single shoe, in some adaptive cases)
  • 1 pair of scissors

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1: Replacing Your Laces

  • Remove the old laces from your chosen shoes.
  • Put the lace-less shoes on your feet – we always recommend keeping your feet in the shoes throughout the installation process to ensure a proper fit.
  • Thread the Lock Lace elastic laces into your shoe eyelets in your chosen lacing pattern.

Step 2: Lock-In

  • Grab a lock device (the piece that says “LOCK LACES®” on it). Press down on the top of the lock to open the passages, and thread the ends of the laces through the passages with your other hand.
  • Once the laces have been threaded through, press down on the top of the lock again and slide the lock to the tongue of the shoe. Release to secure the lock device into place.

Step 3: Trim to Fit

  • Before trimming the excess lace, make sure your laces fit snugly but are not too tight. We recommend wiggling your foot in the shoe or, better yet, standing up and walking around the room to make sure they are at a comfortable length. If your laces are too tight, slide the lock toward the toe of the shoe slightly, readjust the laces and repeat.
  • Once your laces fit comfortably, use a pair of scissors to trim off some of the excess lace. We recommend cutting about 2-3 inches below the lock device to leave room for future adjustments.

Step 4: Secure

  • Finally, slide the cord clip onto the ends of the laces and align the trimmed ends with the teeth inside the cord clip. It is very important that you align the ends with the cord clip properly to ensure that the cord clip stays securely attached. Then, simply snap the cord clip together to secure.
