Re: No dirty boots in the house


Looks a lot handier than those white 'booties' I wonder how long they will last [before they are no longer automatic]

I think they have air that makes them work, so the nail in the boot would do them in.

Re: No dirty boots in the house


Pretty sure they work with metal strips not air. Think curved metal like a tape measure but thicker and more curled. Same difference though. How many times can you open and close them before they stop working.
If anyone gets some, please post your opinion here!

Re: No dirty boots in the house


Bookmarked as they're back-ordered and trying to catch up (I won't buy the Chinese rip-off versions personally. For anyone else willing to wait to buy the original made in the USA - https://www.stepinsock.com/ )

I want a few pairs of these for worker folks and guests who are just dropping in for a minute.

You might be right about the metal strips like a pop up tent, band saw blade type steel. .

This is more for contractors that work in the mud and then get asked to go look at something in the house next door.

Re: No dirty boots in the house


Trimaco makes a dispenser that you just step into that automatically covers your boot with a disposable wrap.
https://trimaco.com/products/protect...z-floorguards/
Works pretty well and you don't have to buy a set of covers for each person coming inside the job.

Re: No dirty boots in the house


The concept looks great.


But I have to wonder if it is lightweight flexible hose of the contractor biz.

Re: No dirty boots in the house


Yeah, I guest for the contractor crowd, okay.

But I'll bet they won't satisfy someone who's got The White Carpet of Compulsive Tidiness.

I just have floors at the house that are easy to clean. I'm with @Bondo on this one. I'll just wallow in the filth . . .
