Penelope’s surprise gift

We would like to share a lovely story with you.. Penelope rang in as she did not order a Sock aid, she did not know what it was for or who from – when she was given the name of Elizabeth who brought it for her, she told us this lovely story:

“Celebrating 60 years of marriage is an amazing milestone. So what does your bridesmaid buy you? At the tender age of 70, Elizabeth brought a truly inspiring gift to help her friend – a Soxon Stocking Aid – with a twist.

Living in harmony is the corner stone in any partnership – it can be those little every day habits that can make all the difference. With 60 years of marriage, there is little that you have not seen and shared together. At the same time, there is probably little that you need.

Content to enjoy the simple, comfortable and homely pleasures. But if your husband cannot get his socks on! Elizabeth’s thoughtful gift enabled frustration free dressing for Penelope’s husband, so he doesn’t need to keep asking her to help him each morning. ”

We hope this made you smile as much as it did us.

How to use

  • Slide your sock all the way to the top, leaving space for your foot to slide in
  • Holding on to the tapes, pop the Soxon on the floor.
  • Use one foot to hold in place and slowly wiggle your other foot in. Make sure you get your toes right to the end of your sock before you start to pull up.
  • No need to bend over as you pull the Soxon up your leg. A wrinkle free sock and cosy toes.
  • Click our ‘video’ tab to watch our instruction video

The Soxon Sock Aid can be used with both hands or one for independent dressing. Use with everyday socks or stockings.

Can I use this sock aid for support/compression socks/stockings?

What types of socks can I use with this sock applicator?

Ankle, casual, trainer, cotton socks, pop socks, nylon tights and stockings.

Does the Soxon help take socks off too?

Unfortunately not. We would recommend using our long handled shoe horn or a Classic Pro Reacher. These aids will help to push the socks or stockings down.

How long and wide are the fabric tapes?

34″/85cm long, 1″/2.5cm wide.

How can I wash the Soxon?

This sock aid is machine washable at 40 degrees using a mild detergent, keeping it clean in-between uses.

What is the Soxon fabric?

Luxuriously soft hypoallergenic bamboo fabric – with a low friction terry towelling inner so its gentle on your skin.

  1. Dee

    Dear Helping Hands
    I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am for a product I purchased from you a few years ago when I had both my hips replaced. The product is “Soxon” and I’m happy to tell you it served me well through 2 hip replacements and now I have had a spine operation I’m using it again! I’ve also loaned it to family and friends. Thank you for making such a simple but helpful item 👏😊

  11. Frank McDonagh

    It is impossible to put on my socks without it

  12. Dennis Nutting

    Works well, some effort is needed to pull the tapes so hope will stand the time. Not sure if it is washable as fleece attracts cotton particles from socks.

  13. Mr Bibbings

  29. R Smith

    I am now able to get socks on without any assistance

  30. B Legg

    I am preparing for hip replacement so practising using these items for after my surgery

  31. Patrick Lacey – Amazon Customer

    Due to leg pains it was very painful to bend down to put my socks on. The Soxon device is so easy to use and takes away the need to bend down so my problems with leg pains are considerably less. It would also be very useful for someone with waistline or backpain problems.

  32. Daveh – Amazon Customer

    Changed my life . Being disabled it’s made life a lot easier. The quality is very good. And the price even better. Thank you .Dave

  33. M Moss

  36. Julia Larman

    It enables me to wear tights, without asking for assistance

  37. Dr D G Salter OBE

    I am in less pain & discomfort when using the Soxon

  38. Cassandra – Amazon Customer

    Had one of these for years. 1st purchased at onset of arthritic knee. Been with me through 2 operations for new knees and continues to be useful due to additional weight problems! It is comfortable to actually use, being fabric rather than plastic. The straps are brilliant as well. Now have a friend who is also going in for knee operation. He now has all the accessories that I found useful during recuperation. EXCEPT my Soxon! I purchased another one for my friend!!

  39. Mrs S Turner – Amazon Customer

    This product makes putting on socks etc very quick, easy & not a chore! Definitely very pleased with this purchase!

  40. Amazon Customer

    Brilliant product, ideal to getting socks on despite hip problems and unable to bend my knee. Now I don’t have to ask somebody else to put my socks on for me!

  41. Armchairgardener – Amazon Customer

    This is an ingenious gadget for putting a sock on without it being necessary to touch your foot. It does however take a lot of upper body strength to pull on even a size 9 foot’s sock. Its important to align the sock’s heal correctly on the gadget before tugging it over your foot.

  42. Rogan Josh – Amazon Customer

    This device is really useful, I have been struggling to put on my socks because of my sciatica, now the problem is solved, easy to use. I was a bit worried about snapping the straps off at first but it seems really robust. (I was a bit surprised when I first opened it to find there was only one…D’uh… I need something to aid my brain now!!!)

  43. A Link

    This product makes a lot of difference to my daily life!

  44. P M Hopkins

  46. anne lloyd – Amazon Customer

    I have osteoarthritis in my right hip , was getting so hard to put my socks and tights on . This is so easy to use , would highly recommend.

  47. Mrs M Watts

    Now that I can put my socks on with great ease my feet are warm again and I no longer need to struggle

  48. P. C. Cartledge – Amazon Customer

    I bought one in 2009 after a hip operation. It is wearing out now so I shall replace it. It can be difficult to use if your feet are damp, so some talc on your skin would help it slide over the skin. Have used it with all sorts of socks with little trouble. If you seriously lack strength in your hands or arms it may be more difficult.

  49. Stuart B- Amazon Customer

    I have tried several aids for putting socks on and this is by far the best. Provided you position the sock carefully on the aid the sock can be pulled on and then needs little or no adjustment. My only concern is that you have to pull quite hard on the straps so I wonder how durable it will be however it works so well I will live with replacement cost if necessary

  50. News voyager – Amazon Customer

    Couldn’t manage without it – immediate service, arrived properly (not over) packaged.

  51. Elaine S – Amazon Customer

    This has made such a difference to my morning routine. Easy to use and so comfortable, I have very bony feet and the normal plastic ones are painful to use, this is wonderfull. Would recommend to anyone that struggles with socks and wants to be able to do this themselves.

  52. C R Wart

    Have bought this product several times. No more bending to put my socks on

  53. Roger Martin

    10 out of 10 so easy to use and eases daily dressing

    Having broken my hip this allows me to put my own socks on, feeling more independent. Great value

  61. V Coates

    I have a broken hip and this helps me put my socks on

  62. Amazon Customer

    Works brilliantly – good idea to have a little practice prior to the surgery! Gave hubby and I a lot of laughs. Good luck if you’re due surgery – you won’t look back – but definitely do the exercises pre and post op to aide recovery and mobility.

    Excellent customer service and my husband is delighted with the product

  69. Mr M Stone

    So much easier for my wife to put socks on so no more struggling. It could possibly have longer handles to pull up as I have a bad back.

  70. Lynn Coles – Trust Pilot

    Great little gadget. The towelling material helps to keep the sock in place until you’ve got it on your foot ( unlike some of the plastic versions). The fabric is also very soft against the skin. I guess the Soxon could be washed if needed.

  71. B Segal

    I can now put my own socks on independently

  72. S.B Whiting

    All of your products are excellent. Really helped me after my new hip – Fantastic company to deal with, thank you so much

  83. Mr Weston

    The Soxon is fantastic for putting on my compression socks – I take it to the diabetic clinic with me and everyone asks where they can get one – its marvellous!

  84. My J Jaines

    Since my hip I am not as flexible as before and the soxon has made life easier. Terrific range of products to make life easier in our declining years – keep up the good work!

  85. George Clark

    This is a quality product that is a big help! I have been doing a bit of shopping online with a company called WISH they are based in China. Comparing products from WISH with the quality of the Small Stocking Aid from The Helping Hand Company makes its Quality stand out even more!

  86. David Collins

    After my hip operation I have used the Soxon twice a day, every day, for the last 12 years and after nearly 9,000 uses it’s still going strong!

    Thank you for making such a fantastic product

  87. Charles Taylor

    Prior to my first hip replacement in 2016 I’d the usual home visit from the Ninewells Hospital Physiotherapist who assesses me for disability requirements post operation. She issued me with a standard issue device to help with pulling on of socks. In her presence I told her it was awkward and ineffective as opposed to the Helping Hand Company’s Soxon device. The lady agreed and I have to add that when I went for my 2nd and left hip replacement operation 10/2017 I found that your Soxon device was now standard issue in the Hip replacement wards 16 &17 of the Hospital. I even got issues with one in addition to the one I already had. I now have three such devices, on in the car with a spare dressing stick, one in daily use and one for the wash. I have to say that now, although a daily fair weather electric cyclist as part of my exercise regime I still rely on daily use of your products to assist me with my casual disabilities acquired as normal from hip replacement operations. I am indebted to you on a daily basis.

  88. Alex Wadkin

    The best on the market, the SOXON is simple and efficient and long lasting. A wonderful aid for putting your socks on and at a reasonable price. Just replaced 10 year old SOXON with same product as whilst still doing it`s job was looking a bit worn.


    My mate has one loves it!

  90. Clifford Boles

    Fantastic product which has made such a difference to helping me out so much.

  91. Jane Jarrard

    Very easy and comfortable to use, fast efficient delivery thank you.

  92. L Jackson – Amazon Customer

    I have never used a sock aid before so did not know what to expect. This one is brilliant. Unlike with the other ones on the market you can get the sock on the aid without over-stretching it. The material used prevents the sock from slipping off and thus you can get your toes right where they belong. It also means that your socks are pulled up to the ankle, which is not the case with another plastic sock aid I purchased and don’t use. And it’s washable!

  93. Mr. K. Vanstone – Amazon Customer

    I bought this for hubby who has arthritis & finding harder & harder bending to put his socks on so increasingly I was having to do it for him. When I bought this for him it gave him back his independence. He says it is really easy to use & I think the best value for money… Excellent product.

  133. Amazon Customer

    I was given one of these by the hospital after my first hip replacement way back in 2010 but it finally gave up the ghost! I wondered if Amazon sold them and was delighted when I found they do. Very handy, if you can’t bend very well, to help you put socks and tights on.

  134. Amazon Customer

    Having hip arthritis I could not put socks on, went weeks with no socks. Then I was recommended this Soxon product. It is an absolutely brilliant aid, I couldn’t do without it now, an absolute game changer. If you suffer the same, get one as soon as you can, you won’t regret it.

  135. Gail Collingburn – Trustpilot

    Husband finds it invaluable. He has two artificial hips and bending is difficult.

  138. G Johnston

    Very pleased with my purchase. It has already fished a paintbrush out of the gutter

  139. G C

    I have had one of ‘sock puter on’ as I call it for as long as I can remember and I have tried other makes which were not a patch on this one

    Without it I would not be wearing socks

  140. S Goustas

    Should be minus 5. I could not use this – I followed the instructions & watched the video but the soxon would not move when being pulled with the straps & the sock stayed insitu. I tried to do it a number of times & have given up. A waste of money.

  141. Pete Young

    very useful
