Why invent something to replace one of the easiest things in life to do. It's the equivalent of making a machine to scratch your arse

Spam.  Post this again and I'll get KickStarter to pull your project.

The ease of scratching your arse is size dependent though? No?

Yes I can accept your question as valid KK, however those with ample (or bigger)arses or indeed shorted arms could use the tried and tested method of rubbing said arse on a convenient tree, as do bears, I do believe this would offer some comedy effect to bystanders but would not require any form of additional invention. I hope this answers your particular query.

What you could do in this instance is to simply rub your crack up and down on a convenient wall corner or door edge

LOL they say that they have some friends that are 20 years old who can't tie their shoe laces

I had bought something similar but a bit  bigger it cost  £7.99 some years ago .  I forgot how to use it was a big  massive mistake buying it!   You had to tie your  shoe laces   from the bottom to the top. But I like Abstack I  just need to attend a few classes to remember how to use the thing!

How much is it?

Judt watched the video - it's more complex than tying your laces!

it doesn't answer all my questions.......how do you get them off.how easy is it to untie the lace...............

also if you cut the excess lace then you have no ends to put through the next time you do them up..............

to tuck them in would be very uncomfortable especially playing sport......

I can see a market for this type of thing for those with poor fine motor skills.......my son was about 11 /12 before he had mastered the skill.....

but I can't see where this would be an advantage over just fitting a pair of the elasticated laces tat triathletes fit in their running shoes.....

I can see some advantage to this product. i like the thought of cutting the laces too.

Seren- if you have them tri laces they tend to flex too much for weak ankles (only heard this from others)

Jason.I have never bothered using mine as the 15 secs it take me to do my laces up doesn't bother me

 

but if you cut the laces then how do you feed it through the next time

29/05/2013 at 12:55

Yeah totaly 

i suppose just trim them

I suspect the laces will unravel without the aglets
