The easiest way to open Zubits closures is to just step on your opposite heel and pop your foot out hands-free. But some people may not have the strength, coordination, or ability to use their feet like this (kids, elderly, arthritis, special needs).
Save the excess shoelace that you cut-off when you installed your Zubits. (we used a white shoelace to stand out).
- Thread the shoelace through one side of the top Zubits closure hole.
- Tie a knot leaving a loop just large enough to put a finger through.
- To separate the magnets, just pull the loop forward and up.
