For the price, this is an excellent item. You put your sock on the white form and then slide your foot in and pull on the handles to pull the white form out of the sock, and your sock then goes onto your foot. The only thing I found was that my bare foot, in summer sticky weather, had a tendency to stick to the white plastic making it harder to slide my foot out. Also the cords on the handles are a bit short for me and I have to stoop over, which is hard for my knee, and I bought this to be easier on my knee, not harder. There is also another one at well.ca the Bios Universal No Bend, and I wonder if it might avoid some of these problems.
