these are very cute but functional also. The plugs that came with the walker wore out very easily. you can slide on the ground/carpet more effortlessly with these. when putting them on, I used a flathead screw driver to get the old out and these I loosened the screw and they slipped right on. They were loose when I tightened the screw by hand so I used pliers, only turn slightly so not to break it. I turned it about a quarter of a turn. They have never fallen out and still work great. adorable and functional.
These are dangerous. I have fallen when they tripped me. The toe is not only not curved upwards as with a traditional walker ski or skid, it has a gradual slope from the toe towards the "laces." As a result, it slips under rugs and anything else on the floor or walkway. When the slightest dip or rise in a sidewalk or between sidewalk sections occurs, the walker stops suddenly and the person can easily be knocked over by their forward momentum. I have had other skis/skids that had the hand screw type of securing them into the leg of the walker. Any I have used before these had a means to flip them out to remove them when they were worn down. Sometimes that required some effort, but it couyld always be done. These, however, seem to have a very solid core and I cannot get them off. I actually hoped that I could wear the walker leg down on the sidewalk so something would be exposed to work with. I have had to lengthen the leg length yet still cannot get the core out to put new...
Bought these for Mom's "outside" walker that she primarily uses at Alzheimer's Day Services. Putting these on her walker brings a smile to everyone's face who sees them for the first time, improving interaction with Mom, her self esteem, and daily experience. Alzheimer's is tough, and any simple thing, even purple tennis shoes for her walker, that brings smiles and lightness that are priceless for someone who might otherwise be confused and afraid. Staff pointed out that if you look very closely you can see that I put the right shoe on the left leg and vice-versa; I left them that way as it seems to bring even more lightness from the staff that notice.
