Hold the Sock Trap in front of your sock at the point where you would like to place it, making sure the hook material is facing inwards and the tag is facing out. Press the long hook section of the Sock Trap onto your sock, ensuring all the hook material adheres.
Holding onto the end of the Sock Trap, wrap the elastic section behind and around your leg.
Continue to pull the Sock Trap towards the front of your leg until it has reached your desired tension. Attach the short hook section to the loop material to secure the Sock Trap and your sock in place.
Lift the end of the Sock Trap, detaching the short hook section from the loop material and releasing the tension.
Re-attach the short hook section to the loop material so the Sock Trap is at its loosest point.
With the Sock Trap at its loosest point, slide off your sock. Next time you’ll wear them, simply slide your socks back on and re-adjust the tension of your Sock Traps.
Plastic tape, commonly used by hockey players and other athletes, is expensive to purchase again and again. Consider the short length of time each application of tape lasts, and the fact that most hockey players use up to four metres of plastic tape every time they put on their equipment. Sock Trap is a cost-effective solution designed to last for years, not just a single use.
Once the Sock traps are on, they will remain attached and ready to be adjusted every time you pull up or slide down your socks. With plastic tape, on the other hand, you have to search your bag for it, apply it, find the seams and peel it off, then purchase it over and over again.
Every day, around the world, after games and practices, countless kilometres of plastic tape are discarded into garbage bins and sent to already overflowing landfill sites, where the tape will remain permanently. The growing use of Sock Trap will greatly reduce the pace of this environmental damage.
