General Details

Extra product information

. The handles do not stretch during use and can be adjusted as required by cutting or knotting. Straps may be tied into a single loop if required.
. An indentation either side at the top section of the gutter/trough shape aid, holds the sock or stocking securely in place.

Method of Use

1. Gather up the leg of the stocking or sock to the toe, with your thumbs inside.

2. Pull the stocking on to the gutter aid, making sure it is gutter shaped, or a "u" and not flat. This can be done by placing the gutter onto your lap and squeezing it with your wrists, while pulling the gathered stocking on with your fingers.

3. You will find most of the leg of the stocking should be in the two cut outs or hollow areas on either side of the gutter. the stocking should not go over the end of the gutter, near the tapes and the gutter should be firmly into the toe of your stocking. Also make sure the heel of the stocking is underneath the gutter and has not twisted to one side.

4. Sit firmly on the bed or chair and use the aid. Lower the gutter to the floor, keeping hold of the tapes in each hand at each side of your legs.

5. With your knee bent at right angles, put your toes in the "hole" made at the entrance of the gutter. Keep your heel firmly on the floor and wriggle your foot right into the toe end of the stocking.
Do not pull the tapes at the moment only use them to guide the gutter if it twists around. If you pull the tapes, you will not succeed in getting your toes right to the end.

6. Lift your heel off the floor, straighten your knee and point your toes. Pull up each tape alternately with a quick wiggling action. This will pull the stocking up your leg until you can reach it.

7. Repeat the procedure for the other leg, if required.
