Occasionally the plastic tips on the ends of our shoelaces (aglets) will break-off and fray, which doesn’t effect the shoelace strength, but can make it awfully frustrating to switch the laces into a new pair of shoes. Ironlace™ Paracord Laces You can repair Ironlace™ Paracord laces by using a lighter. Cut off the frayed ends and then melt the ends carefully which will cause the ends to melt slightly. Ta da! No more frayed ends. Ironlace™ & Ironlace™ Sport Our original Ironlace™ products do not melt, so a lighter won’t work for Ironlace™ or Ironlace™ Sport varieties. To fix a missing aglet and frayed ends, cut off the tip and then apply a couple of drops of super glue or Krazy Glue®. Allow it to dry and you’re all set! WARNING: Only an adult should repair our shoelaces with either method. Take care not to set fire to the shoelace and DO NOT TOUCH the melted laces with your fingers as it can stick to your skin and burn! Follow directions carefully when using super glue or Krazy Glue®.
