Imagine ... never sorting socks again!
In most homes, sock piles abound! Socks seem to have a life of their own. How do they end up in so many places throughout our home?
Socks travel through several stages in the wash and wear cycle - from dresser drawer, being worn, to the washer, dryer, then sorted and matched with their mate, before they make it safely back to the dresser drawer. With so many steps in the process, no wonder they get lost and mismatched.
Socks that end up in mismatched piles and never make it safely back to the dresser drawer are useless clutter.
Have you considered the time it takes to match socks coming out of the
laundry and getting them back in the drawer. Before I found the tool I'm about to tell you about
, in our home our socks made it out of the laundry, but never seemed to get matched up, so they stayed in a yellow basket where each family member had to go to fish out and match up a pair of socks to wear for the day. Think of the daily chaos just trying to get dressed X 3. Only until it got so bad that my entire household's inventory of socks were piled in a laundry basket, would I wage a sock sorting event. I got the kids involved by putting in a movie and all of us would spread out on the floor and match up socks, typically for the duration of the movie.
Perhaps you're guilty of having "sock clutter"? Sock clutter consists of those orphan socks that litter your home, never to be worn again because the mate has been lost somewhere in the laundry process.
What if you had a tool that would eliminate both of these sock chores forever?
- The hours spent each week sorting and matching each family member's socks
- Orphan sock clutter
IMAGINE ... never losing another sock or having to sort piles of socks again! Think of the time and space you'd get back. Imagine mornings running smoothly when family members now have easy access to a pair of socks.As a Professional Organizer and busy mom of two, I am always on the look-out for home organizing and management tools that simplify daily home functions. Imagine how excited I was when I found Loc-A-Soks (also called Sock-Locks.)
With Sock-Locks you eliminate lost / orphan socks forever and save the time wasted sorting and matching socks.
With Loc-A-Sok, socks go from washer to dryer to dresser drawer all without sorting or losing socks

Sock-Locks work for all types of socks. insert each sock, toes first through the grippers. The Loc-A-Sok is a one-step process designed to keep any socks paired from your laundry basket, to the washer, the dryer and into the dresser drawer.
No need to remove the Loc-A-Soc until socks are ready to wear. Store Sock-Locks near the laundry basket and attach socks to the Sock-Lock before dropping them in the laundry basket.
Made of durable plastic, each pack includes enough for 10 pairs of socks, or 20 pairs of thin socks. Sock-Locks come in four colors making it easy to assign a different color to each family member.
