New Product solves children’s shoe tying problems.

Share Article

Dawn Sollinger, mother of 3 and owner of a family daycare, has designed a new product that solves the age-old problem children have, learning to tie their shoes. The Easy Tie Shoelace is a pre-looped shoelace that threads easily into shoes, and creates a loop on either side of the shoe. Children can easily cross and tie them, and they automatically create a secure double knot. When untied, they do not drag on the ground and present a trip hazard.

The Easy Tie Shoelace was designed after watching children struggle with learning to tie, and realizing the hardest part for the children was holding the loops while they tried to tie them, and also after witnessing accidents happen when children stepped on their own, or someone else’s untied shoelace. The Easy Tie shoelaces are now being manufactured at the Pepperell Braiding Company, Pepperell, MA.

The Easy Tie Shoelaces are helping children learn to tie their own shoes, and keeping them tied. The design makes it easy enough for even a preschooler to tie them, leaving kids with a feeling of accomplishment. Unlike curly laces, these laces teach children the first steps in tying, and they stay secure without the use of locks, looking like ordinary shoelaces when tied.

Quote* Anonymous Elementary schoolteacher: I really like these. There is nothing worse than first graders who can’t tie their own shoes. It can really be a hassle with so many children.

The Easy Tie Shoelaces are patent pending, and are available for private or retail sale at and . For more information call (978) 697- 9364.
