Easiest way to repair shoelace tips (aglets)

For these shoelaces I used clear 3/32" heat shrink tubing, a hair dryer, and tweezers to prevent burning my fingers.

1. Cut the desired length of tubing
2. Slip shoelace inside
3. Hold lace with tweezer
4. Apply heat with hair dryer

So fast and easy! The shrink tubing is great for quick fixes of crushed plastic aglets, to shorten your laces or to make custom laces out of other cords or ribbon. I am going to try the colored tubing next. Thrilling!
