CHAPEL HILL, N.C., April 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lock Laces® team has developed a new way for individuals to utilize its original no-tie shoelaces by incorporating them in homemade face masks. Wearing masks can help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and Lock Laces® can be used to make one's mask more comfortable, adjustable, and durable.
During these uncertain times, Lock Laces® has made it a priority to encourage the safety and well-being of its customers, as well as all who are sheltering in place and taking the necessary precautions throughout the Triangle and beyond.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) outlined steps for creating a homemade, washable face mask using a no-sew method and common household items. Lock Laces® add greater comfort and functionality compared to the CDC's suggestion of using hair ties or rubber bands as over-ear pieces in the mask. Instructions detailing how to create your own face mask with Lock Laces® can be found here: https://www.locklaces.com/blogs/resources/how-to-make-a-face-mask-with-lock-laces.
Chief Executive Officer Frank Sutton said, "Our Lock Laces® family recognizes that we have a product that can be very useful in playing at least a small part in keeping our customers and our essential workers safe during this pandemic."
Lock Laces® is currently offering its best-selling black two-pack of laces for $9.99 with free shipping for a limited time. This provides you with a way to secure your face mask and turn your shoes into slip-ons. Also, you could share a pair of laces with a loved one or gift a pair to a local healthcare hero so that we can all work together to spread joy — not germs.
