Thank you for visiting our website.

We regret that we had to shut down our form for adding guestbook messages due to the large number of spam postings we have received. We would love it if you would email us a message that we will manually add to our guestbook.

But first -  a message from us.

Distributing sock-locks is our family business.  Why are we doing this?   We found sock-locks years ago in a local grocery store. First only my husband, Marty, and I used them. Now our two sons (now 15 and 18) use them too.  We rarely have mismatched socks or a single lonely sock.  And sorting laundry (usually done by Marty) is really easy. We always know whose socks are whose because we each use different colors. This is important because now all our socks are all about the same size! 

A couple of years ago, when we wanted to buy more --  no, we NEEDED to buy more -- we couldn't find them anywhere.  We carried a sock-lock on our key chains and showed it to friends, asking them if they ever see them in a store, to let us know.  We even tried making them.  It was VERY frustrating.  When we became familiar with the internet we searched for sock-locks online and couldn't find them there either. We promised ourselves that if we ever found them we would make sock-locks available on the internet and save others the frustration we experienced. Thanks to our friend Diane, another sock-locks fan, we did find them and here we are.

It's been fun to hear from the many sock-lock enthusiasts all around the country, many of whom also had trouble finding sock-locks and are grateful for this website.

In late December 2000, one long-time sock-lock user emailed us about the "Buyer's Edge" column in  the Atlantic Journal Contsitution Newspaper where someone asked where they can find Sock-Locks. We contacted the columnist and she wrote about us in the January 20, 2000 edition. We received many orders from that article.  If you know of anyone else who is looking for Sock-Locks please let them know about us.  If you know of a newspaper column for which an article  about Sock-Locks would be appropriate, please let us know about it.

I have taken the liberty of posting some of the comments we've received to start off this guestbook. We would love to hear from you.  

Regards,

Gail

I have literally checked with every store in this area and
absolutely NOBODY carries sock rings. I really thought that a
couple of the stores like Bed, Bath&Beyond or Linens n'Things
would have them and they truly shocked me when they said they
did not have them.

I've been both using and looking for a source of Sock Locks for many years. It's a pain to be trying to scavenge any still existing Sock Locks around the house just to be able to put my socks in the wash. Obviously, I like Sock Locks. It is such a pleasure to know that I have found your site. I have a new use for Sock Locks that helped us. Some people like to use cloth napkins, one for each person, at the dinner table instead of paper, and they use them, say, a week or a few days at a time. My wife wanted to do this to avoid using paper napkins, for ecology's sake - save the trees and all that. Also, cloth is nicer. Well, when you use cloth napkins, it is nice to be using all the same color napkins at the table. But how do you tell them apart? After all, the last thing you want is to be using someone else's nasty napkin. So what we do is, attach one color of Sock Lock to the top corner of each chair with a string, as a reminder. Then pull the same color Sock Lock onto the corner of that person's napkin. Easy to tell them apart with no mix-ups. My color was white, my wife's yellow, and each of the two kids - red and blue. With your six colors, you can handle a family of six with no difficulty. Also, if you want to get really neat about it, after meals you can attach the napkin to that chair's Sock Lock to dry the napkin and keep it off the table. This system (which I made up) worked fine for us. Jim DeMian Columbia, MO

My father stumbled on to these sock-locks back in 1973 and bought a 1/2 truck load. We used to pass them out at steel making conventions. Maybe I might of been the one that gave you your first sock lock. I sell cars at a dealership in Merrillville Indiana(not chevy), I want to give them away to my customers. I could probably find out from my father where he bought them. I would like a picture to see if this is the same unit , please let me know. Thanks Jeff Collins!

My wife loves your sock locks. I travel & carry them with me. When I return they are all ready to go in the washer & dryer and she never has to match socks. I had aquired the first ones through a friend's mother & had a hard time finding more. I used a Google search for sock rings and came up with your site. Thanks.

Like so many others who have written, I too have been searching a long time to find these "sock locks". Using the search engine 'Overture' I typed it 'sock organizers' and got a hit immediately on your site.

My husband has been using socks locks for years. Then about 3 years ago he needed some more, and we found them in a sock shop at Myrtle Beach. A friend who was with us also bought his first set. Now my husband and our friend need more. We have searched everywhere. I finally found your site after several other Internet searches. You'll definitely be getting an order from us. Thanks.

Just looked through my order database, and paypal records. I do not see an order from Kay Younger. I am wondering which form you used that did not provide an order complete or "thank you for your order" page. If you have a confirmation from paypal or cancelled check, please let me know by private email rather than in the guestbook.

Can you tell me what page you were on where you found the missing buttons? Our order form is on http://www.sock-locks.com/buy.htm. To order online you must pay through paypal. Otherwise you can print the order form and send with a check or money order. As far as a distributor ship goes, send an email to largeorder@sock-locks.com to receive an email order form with shipping costs and reduced prices for large quantities. I'd be happy to discuss this further with you.

Your website is incomplete and works poorly. Missing buttons. Need a button for order complete, how to pay, how to ship. My wife Kay Younger odered SockLocks in Late December and we still have not received them. Is there a problem? I am in retail sales and would be interested in a distributorship for SE Michigan, because no one has these for sale in stores. I could help fix that.

I have been searching for sock locks for years, ever since I got a few as gifts from a friend. My husband "claimed them" and I never got to use them on my own socks but at least had the pleasure of not having to deal with his socks-you know men's socks, shades of black, blue, etc. My husband has become so attached to them that he has tried glueing the old ones that eventually broke or has tried to make them himself. I am soooo happy to have found this website, care of a friend that has heard me ask everyone if they have heard about them. They are wonderful. It is amazing that what appears to be such a mundane product could evoke such a happy response in anyone who uses them.

ABOUT SOCK-LOCKS FOR THICK SOCKS ONLY. We only sell the combined package as shown on the info page. We do suggest that if you only want the ones for thick socks, that you buy as many packages as you need to get the required quantity and then repackage the extra singles to give as gifts (examples: stocking stuffers, baby showers (especially for multiples), bridal showers, college students, etc.)

As a kid in the early sixties, my best friend at that time had a mom who knew about Sock Locks. I thought it was a pretty cool idea. When I went away to college, streamlining the chore of laundering, specifically minimizing my involvement in it, was an important priority. So that's when I made my first investment in Sock Locks (or Sox Lox as I thought they were called). The ones I use now are wearing out, and since I can't find them in any of the local big box stores, this is great outlet for them. You never know what you can get from the internet until you look!

Wonders never cease. I'm working out at the gym today and dutifully pulling out my socks. which at my wife's insistance are linked by these things for which I have never known the name. Lo and behold this guy who is changing in a locker down the hall raises his hand with a sock lock in his hand and says his wife demands their use also. He tells me that there is actually a website which sells these things. So as soon as I get home from the office I check it out. I couldn't dare do this at work where as a an executive of a financial firm I wouldn't run the risk of being caught with this weird device on the screen. Anyway back to the gym, my buddy and I agree that the use of sock locks is a sure sign of "analness" but that we couldn't do without them (our wives are another story). But you better watch it. My daughter, an advertising hotshot is thinking of becoming an entrepreneur and if you don't start selling the thick sock locks separately, I am going to encourage her to focus on the "thick sock" market.

My former mother-in-law gave me sock locks in about 1978. They are still fuctional, but my supply is beginning to dwindle. I have searched five and dime and notion stores for more than ten years. Everyone needs these.

I have been a long time user as well (probably over 20 years). I grew up in a family of 5 boys and my parents had them for us to use (each had his own color). I've continued using sock locks and now am running low. I have six children and they are using safety pins to attache the socks together. I'm ordering a mess of packages as an underground tactic to see if I can get the kids to switch. (They make fun of my sock locks...) I think when they see how easy they are to use, and when they discover they don't have to do anything when the socks come out of the dryer (such as remove safety pins and fold the socks together), they'll be sold.

Cindy,

I am so glad you came back and sent your request again and typed your correct email address in your message.  You should have your email large order form now.

I am trying to place a large order, but have gotten no responses yet from several e-mails sent. I, too, have used these for years, but also have had difficulty finding them. With a growing family, I am especially interested in buying a bunch more. Several friends and family members are going to get them as stocking stuffers this Christmas, if I can find enough of them.

I like your product very much.However, I have more of the THIN than I know what to do with. Since my company and most companies, have gone to business casual, I wear thicker socks with casual shoes on a daily basis. I think you are missing a major sales opportunity by not offering the THICK sorter in a package by itself. Just think of the athletic sock and business casual market that you are missing.. I will be one of your first customers if you decide to offer a THICK sorter only package. Thanks, Ray Carroll

I hated Sock Locks as a kid. I remember my mom yelling at me to "put those socks on a Sock Lock!", while rolling my eyes. Now as an adult, as I do my own laundry, I realize how conveniant these things were. And I also like a bunch of other people ran around looking for them and had no luck. Thanks for tracking them down. I can't wait to tell my folks about it, there gonna flip!

My husband has used these sock sorters for over 20 years and his old ones are finally wearing out! He has been trying to be gentle on the ones he has left and thought we would never find more. I have been looking for more for the past 3 or 4 years and no one has even heard of them in the stores. I had looked on the internet and even asked "Fran and Nan" in the newspaper, because they can find anything, but they could not find these! Thank you so much for making sock sorters available again!

Amazing! I have been searching for these things everywhere; only one place had them and now they don't carry them anymore. All of my friends laugh at me; they say the clips look like little frisbees, but the joke is on them when I pull my socks out of the dryer and don't have to sort them. I love my sock clips!

I thought my husband was just a nerd for using these and he too was in a panic when he needed more and could not find any!!! He went from discount store to discount store looking for the past 3 years or so. I simply went online and did a Yahoo search and came across this website! Can I tell you how EXCITED he was when I told him I ordered him 2 sets of 16! I totally made his day! I had no idea it was that simple! Sock Locks making him happy! Then as I read all these other stories in the guest book I realize that he's not alone in his desire to search for more. Who knew sock locks were so popular. I need to thank you for this website because not only did you make my husband's day but you made me the hero finding them on the internet!

I am so glad I found sock locks again. I grew up in a family of eight people and my mother used sock locks to save sock sorting time. Each of us had a different color. It made laundry easy. I found them once in a store when I first got married but since we have two children, I had to find more. Needless to say, I could not find them anywhere in stores. I also carried an example to ask store clerks. I finally typed in sock sorters on the Internet and my husband were both surprised that we found them again as easy as that. Thank you so much for thinking about the sock lock fan club across the country. You have saved my life while doing family laundry. Therese

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH !!! I finally found you!! I've been looking for these sock-locks for years. Here's my true story: I remember that when I was a child I saw one of those rings somewhere in a drawer, and wondered what it was for. More than 20 years later, while reading a web page, the author mentioned them and described them (then I had a flashback)... and until then I knew what it was for, and since that moment I was looking for them, because I NEED THEM. So my search began, needless to say, I was quickly frustrated because they were simply not available anywhere. Today, I found this glorious website, more than 22 years after my first encounter with this gadget. By the way: when were the sock-locks invented? Thank you very, very, very much!! Regards.

I have been looking everywhere for Sock Locks. I stumbled onto your website after years of searching for these. I have tried some other sock clips but the ones that held as well were 3 times as expensive. The others I found (that I had to order from Autria) just came out in the Wash Machine. I can't wait for my order to arrive!!!!

We tried to put our daughters little socks in the sock locks, but the socks just
fall out. And we have the enormous pile of unmatched socks to prove it!

months for "sock rings",as we call them, without success! I have even placed
classified ads. Ours are just about gone. People look at you like"What did you

Hi, Hooray! I found your web site for Socks Locks!!! I found them once on one of those small-sized gift catalogs about twenty years ago, and I liked them so much I gave some away to my friends. I later regretted that (only a little) when I wanted more and couldn't find a source for Sock Locks. I've been looking for them for about ten years or more, and didn't even know they now come in colors. I'd always thought that'd be a good addition. Good for you! I had almost given up hope of finding them, mumbling to myself everytime I did the wash and had to sort my all socks. Since I'm a single guy, by the time I got around to doing a load of socks, etc., I had about two or three weeks worth of stuff to sort. You can imagine how happy I am to be able to obtain more sock locks. Life just got a little brighter! Thanks Again, Bruce P.S. Feel free to quote me.

I have used sock locks for many years and love them. I do not have to scramble around in the drawer to find matched socks. I have been looking for sock locks locally to give to friends but have been unable to find the right kind. I am glad that I found this site.

I think these are great. My brother used them all the time to keep track of his families socks. Since I became a mother I have been looking everywhere for sock-locks, but unable to find them. Thanks for putting them on the internet. "DEATH TO THE SOCK MONSTER. LONG LIVE SOCK-LOCKS."

Thank you so much for making it easy to find your sock-locks. I have searched the stores for the last 2 1/2 years. I just decided to take a chance and look on the internet. You probably have a very good idea what a time save these little gizmos are. We look forward to getting our shipment as soon as possible. Thanks

I am sooooooo thankful that I decided to look on the internet for sock locks!!! Years ago I too bought some in a local grocery store. When my husband and I wore ours out, I began looking for more. Much to my chagrin, I have been unable to locate sock locks locally or in Houston. I can't believe that these little things are so much help with the laundry and NO ONE carries them. Thank you for your assistance.

I love them. I must echo the popular sentiment that packs of doubles would be very handy.

I've been looking for these things for a long time in the various dollar stores, etc. And I can easily find the single ring variety. These are completely useless; I have plenty and they are of no use to me at all. What I'm looking for are what you refer to as the 'thick sock' type, i.e. the double rings. Do you sell these separately? I've no inclination to buy sixteen of the useless kind (of which I have a surplus) in order to get four pair of the kind I really need. thanks, steve

Thank You, Thank You!!!! I love you already and I don't even know you. I can't wait to be able to order my new sock locks from you. I may even start a business with these. LOL My life has been so unorganized since I have been unable to get more of these sock locks. My husband and I even thought of trying to manufacture these things because we were sure everyone else had the same problem with socks being lost in the laundry. I was in the same boat as you were, I had purchased some sock locks either in a Kmart or Walmart years ago then they disappeared from the market place. I travel some and my husband travels also, we have looked in almost every city we have been in. Thank you for making them available. GT

Oh my gosh, I can't believe it. We found these over 25 years ago when we were first married. We didnot know they came in colors. What a small miracle that makes a big difference. Thanks so much.

With seven children we have used your sock locks for years. My only wish is that I could buy a package with only doouble locks. That would be great.

I've used products like this for several years, purchased at large discount chains. However, I never had a good, reliable supply source. I'm glad I found your page and am ready able and anxious to purchase product. I wish you had a 'real' order system so that I could order right now...... !!! Thanx for existing Dr. Don M. Lucas

We posted the following comments from our customers to get our guestbook started.

I want to thank you for the sock locks. I had been looking for them for about a year. I was down to one spare.

Please tell us how you found the Sock Lock webpage:

I was actually looking for any site that I could ask where to find socklocks - I couldn't believe you had a webpage! We had been looking everywhere for them.

--Kathy from Louisiana

Please tell us how you found the Sock Lock webpage:

The best secretary in town! I've been looking in stores for 2 years!

Thank you. My husband has used them for years!! Yeah Internet!

-- Marsha in California

* * * * * * * * *

I have been using sock-locks since I was a teenager, and would like to get them for my children.

-- Howard in Utah

* * * * * * * * *

I've been looking for these for years. I have a few and want more.

* * * * * * * * *

I have searched for a very long time for sock-locks, but to no avail. Fact is sock-locks are as important to me as sliced bread! Glad you ran the listing in the Atlanta Journal Newpaper.

* * * * * * * * *

I am so glad that I found your site! When my husband and I married 5 years ago, he opened my eyes to the wonderful world of sock-locks. We have been using his existing supply of them since. Our family has expanded several times and we have not been able to find sock-locks in any of the stores in our area, which is Louisville, KY.

* * * * * * * * *

I have been looking for these everywhere in Kansas City!

* * * * * * * * *

"Thank You, very much!"

Had been looking for this item for well over a year now. Had told family and friends to let me know if they found some. Reviewing form now; will be ordering shortly!

* * * * * * * * *

I have been looking for this item everywhere. I use it faithfully and have saved lots of money on socks over the years.

* * * * * * * * *

I am very pleased to find someone who sells this product.

* * * * * * * * *

Have been using them for years, and have been looking for them for too long! Delighted they're still available.

* * * * * * * * *

I love my sock-locks. need more

* * * * * * * * *

I think your product is great and have been using them since I was in college. As a single man, they were invaluable. While my wife initially laughed at them, SHE LOVES them, particularly when she hears hear friends gripe about what a pain it is to sort their husbands' socks!

* * * * * * * * *

Please send me some information about your product....we've had a terrible time finding these locally any more and are almost out of them.

* * * * * * * * *

My husband LOVES your product! Don't ever stop selling these sock-locks.

* * * * * * * * *

I have been looking for these since forever. I bought these in NYC in the 80's and when I ran the store I bought them from, stopped buying them. They're great.

* * * * * * * * *

I had used your product years ago, when hubby was in military.. they are perfect for nylon socks...... after several years of NOT wearing them, he's back to them, and the washer just eats them!! Thanks for the redesign.... cause we have some thicker socks I'm anxious to try in the banded double locks.

Note: We can't take the credit for the design, but we appreciate the praise anyway.
