Not a fan of the way the have them molded together. I use them for gym socks in pairs, one per hole but the way these are made you only have one set. I use small plastic ty-wraps to hold two together so I can keep two socks together. This set gives you keepers for one pair, then the other 4 are only for 4 very thin sock pairs that will fit into one hole.
As a mother of 8 children, I used to hate sorting socks! But socklocks have changed laundry of socks from the worst to being the easiest! In my family,each person is assigned a different color for their sock locks. Sock locks go on to the pair of socks when the person takes their socks off and before putting in their laundry hamper. They stay on through washing, drying, sorting (sorting is a dream with these on!) and into the family members' drawers. Mine have held up for over fifteen years and I am only now starting to get replacements. The only complaint I would have is that when I ordered the sock locks this time, the site said they were assorted colors. There are two colors to each package. I was trying to get a bunch for my married children to use in their families now, too. Unfortunately, the packages were almost all the same two colors. The quality of the product is still excellent, tho,' so I still gave five stars.
I live in an apt and have to go to community laundry. Was HOPING for a solution to the "Lost Sock" mystery. Gave these a try. It was a miserable failure! Very small to try and push 2 socks through the loop ( per directions). Very thin plastic material. 3 of the 5 I used, broke in first with. They were thin dress socks! Cant imagine trying with athletic socks. So this product failed to I will continue to find the ultimate " sock keeper". Will NOT buy again.

Have used these for years. Work well and I can't remember having a sock that doesn't fit in them. But perhaps would be a problem if you have very heavy wool socks. Works great however for usual weight white and dress socks. I have tried another "softer" more flexible brand but socks seem to fall out of them sometimes during washing. My socks stay put in these. They save time in that I don't have to take the time to go through a pile of single socks to find its mate. Inexpensive helpful tool.
I am thrilled to get these Sock Locks. I looked online a few years ago and couldn't find them. I have had some for MANY years, a few broke over time and I seem to have more socks than I used to. I initially bought the locks maybe 35 years ago when my husband had so many different colored grey socks that I spent far too much time matching them up. Once I bought the sock locks, he used them faithfully and I no longer had a problem. I will not get 35 years out of the new ones since I won't be around that long, but they should last for the rest of my life!
My elderly father buys socks all the same, except they aren't always the same length. He has very limited vision, determines by feel which socks are the same length, and relies on sock locks to keep same length socks together. We couldn't them in local stores to replace old ones that are brittle and broken, so I was very happy to find these on line at a good price. You can see in the product photos that only two of the six are attached; the rest are singles, which are not much use. If all the locks were attached, my rating would be 5 stars; single sock locks are not much use. I use cable ties on the other four; so out of the 24 locks in a package, he now has 12 (instead of 4) that are usable to keep socks in pairs.
Everyone wants to spend as little time doing laundry and sorting clothes and socks. SockLocks are the best way to keep each pair of socks together in your laundry. Pull a portion of the sock through the lock and the pair stays together through both the wash and dry cycle. When I received my packages I saw that each package contained 2 colors.. Each family member can have a different color SockLock. The locks are extremely durable and mine have lasted for decades(no lie). How many products on the market could make that claim. I just needed a few more sets because I lost a few and also gave some to my daughter. They make a perfect little gift for family/friends or the college student leaving home. I highly recommend LuLu's SockLocks and I give them a "10".
I have used these sock locks for years. I was tired of trying to figure out what socks went together. Was it a black or blue sock? Was it an older or newer sock? This makes doing laundry so much easier. When you take your socks off before putting them in the hamper you just push them through a holder and voila socks stay together. You just wash, dry, and throw them in the drawer. When I am getting a pair out to wear, I take the holder off and put it on the pair I wore yesterday and throw them into the hamper. If you think you can't get your family to do this? Let them sort their own socks or better yet I made them do their own laundry. It worked.
