Grippies™ No-slip Adhesives Now Available For Adult Hosiery
GRiPPiES no-slip adhesives are now available in a clear oval shape as well as the original star and bear shapes. GRiPPiES Ovals are larger than the original star and bear shapes, making them an ideal shape and size for adult socks.

All age groups are vulnerable to slip and fall injury in the home. When GRiPPiES rubbery adhesives are applied to hosiery, they provide traction to help in the effort to avoid slipping on tile and hardwood floors. Iron or stick the shapes on and GRiPPiES stay for good, even through the washing machine.
GRiPPiES can also keep floors cleaner and people healthier—the professional cleaning industry estimates that 85% of pollutants and dirt in our homes comes in on our shoes. The EPA “Doormat Study” measured the amount of lead dust in homes, and found that the homes where doormats were present and shoes were removed upon entering had a reduction of lead dust and other chemicals by nearly 60%. Specifically in homes where shoes were removed, there was a decrease of allergens and bacteria.
GRiPPiES OVAL shapes for adults are available in two varieties: as a self-adhesive for thinner fabrics, like nylon and micro-fiber tights and stockings; and as an iron-on for all fabrics. GRiPPiES come in sheets of 16 individual shapes, which create a non-skid surface on the soles of two pairs of tights, socks or slippers. They are currently available for purchase online at http://www.grippiesonline.com.
