|Tyless Convertibles Installation Options
Two Locking Buttons per shoe (Classic Installation): 1: Lace up the shoes as you normally would,
leaving the laces a little bit loose at this stage 2: Grasp the locking button in one hand and the loose
lace in the other. Now lay the lace across two opposed holes, pull up on the button and down on the
lace. The lace will pop into both locking button holes. 3: Once this is done, pull the lace through the
locking button to the shoe eyelet. 4: Repeat on the other lace end and then the other shoe. That's It!
Depending upon how much lace is left over, there are a number of strategies for securing the extra
lace. If the shoe has an extra lace hole at the top (many running shoes have an extra hole generally not
used) you can run the extra lace material back inside the shoe and tucked between the tongue and
eyelet flap. Extra lace material may also be tucked under the laced section. Options for securing the
extra lace can be seen on the installation page of www.tyless.com, Classic Installation. If you want to cut
the excess lace off, first saturate the lace with what is commonly known as SuperGlue about 1/2 inch
from where you want to cut, then leave for one hour, and cut. This will harden the lace material thereby
preventing the lace from fraying and allowing you to re-lace the shoe at a later time.
One Locking Button Per Shoe (Central Locker Installation): !: Grasp the locking button in one hand
and pull one lace into two adjacent holes using the open channels; the lace should snap into place. 2:
Repeat using the other lace end and remaining two holes. 3. Grasp both laces and pull them through
the locking button to the shoe top. The remaining lace is typically run beneath the laced section
between the eyelets. If there are long sections of lace left over, you do have the option of cutting the
lace. To do this, first saturate the lace with what is commonly known as SuperGlue about 1/2 inch from
where you want to cut, then leave for one hour, and cut. The hardened lace material forms a new
endcap which prevents fraying and allows you to lace the shoe again at a later date.
