if you get tired of lacing your shoes every time you go outside, then the lace-amatic is the perfect gadget
for you. this small two-part plastic mechanism acts as a ratchet to tighten up pre-tied shoes allowing
users to slip on their shoe and tighten it up without retying a bow every time. the lace-amatic slips over
the shoe's laces and once twisted, it tightens up the laces just like tying them up. while you may be
thinking this is a rather useless invention for lazy people who don't want to tie their shoelaces, it was
actually designed for older people and those with reduced mobility, for whom bending down to tie up
their shoes is a difficult task.
