This is the economic choice in sock aids. The sock aid is die cut from a thin sheet of polypropylene plastic sheet. There are notches and a foam pad on the back to assist with holding the sock on. Simple bend the sock aid into a cylinder shape and insert into your sock (not recommended for compression stockings). Drop the sock aid and sock on the floor in front of you and insert your toes and foot. Then pull the soft braided strap up you leg. As you do, the sock aid with your sock will move onto your foot, up your ankle and calf. Continue to pull and the sock aid will pull free of your sock.
