I hadn't tried them until yesterday. In all honesty, I have never really had an issue with my laces. I normally don't find myself tying them too tight or too loose (I am pretty much like Goldilocks and get them 'just right' the majority of time). Also, I normally double knot my shoes, so they don't tend to come untied on me. BUT IF YOU ARE SOMEONE THAT DOES HAVE LACE ISSUES, THIS WOULD BE A GREAT ITEM FOR YOU TO PICK UP!
Although when I saw them I didn't think that I "needed" them - they were extremely convenient. They were very easy to 'install' on my shoes. The nice thing is that I didn't need to alter my laces at all - just slide the LaceLocker® on each shoe and they held my laces in place. They are extremely light weight and I didn't even notice that they were on - just noticed my shoe laces weren't flopping about or coming undone.
Two other features that I love are, first, the fact that they are made in the USA, and second, they come in an assortment of colors. The different color options are: black, silver (which I have), hot pink, neon green, lady bug graphics, and even a Neely Spence Gracey Signature series "Inspired...Get Runnng" - which donates 20% of the proceeds to a scholarship fund.
LaceLocker® is a sports apparel specialty device which securely stores tied shoe laces. If you wear laced shoes, LaceLocker® will securely store tied laces without you having to stop and and tie shoes repeatedly. Your child can still learn to tie shoes, but they are safer and you won't have to worry about falls.
