Package includes two laces, pairs of BOTH black button locks with end pieces AND white button locks with end pieces. It is your choice to use either black or white locks.
Laces shoe normally
With the shoe on the foot, tighten or loosen laces at each eye to adjust to your desired fit
2) push lock button, insert laces through lock
Push down on the lock button,
Insert each lace tip through each of the lock openings, slide lock up as shown, release lock
To insure PROPER FIT–with the shoe on your foot, slide the lock up to adjust your desired fit
3) slide end piece
Note: the end piece is optional. Before completing this step, see below for custom options
while the lock is in place at your desired fit, insert lace tips through the end piece and slide end piece up to the lock
4) knot & cut
Loop the laces as shown into a knot–see Custom Options below to decide where you want to place the knot
Pull on the laces to tighten the knot
Cut below the knot as shown
The distance from the lock to the end piece is the distance you will be able to slide the lock. If you want to be able to open up your shoe a lot when putting on your shoes, then leave three inches of distance from the lock to the end piece. A shorter distance will leave less room.
One option is to not use the end piece (far left photo); instead simply knot the laces as shown in Step 4, and then tuck in the lace ends
The middle and right photos show examples of other options using the end piece at two lengths
"A special thanks for bringing the 1st Place Laces fundraiser to The Arc. It is such a blessing to have the funds available to help pay for things from staff wages to special projects."
