Hard to provide star rating as the problem is me not the item. End pieces are really clunky to accommodate the ratchet feature so taking glasses off/on is made difficult. The retainer is stiff plastic and floats around the back of the head like a reverse face guard. Sticking with the classics
I love the design and the color (I got the pink/purple), but unfortunately it does not fit on my sunglass frame.
It's a bummer but with the price-point, it's not worth a return so I will keep it around to see if any of my friends want it.
It's so cute, it's a shame
I am a carpenter and use cheaters for close in work while not needing them otherwise. I tried several different holders with mixed results. I need to be able to grab and put my glasses on with one hand often while holding a tool while on a ladder. Most other holders either broke or wore out from admittedly harsh use and constant snagging. The ones that held onto my glasses the best, meant that the glasses broke often.
These hold well while also releasing the glasses before they break. They last incredibly long under the harsh use I give them. I can ratchet them down and they help keep the glasses from sliding down my nose when I look downward. I would have given them a 5 star review for my first pairs. This 3rd pair is shorter than those and it’s harder to get my glasses on with one hand now because they’re so close in.
....”Ratchet. The best answer.
Actually works, and because of that it saves me money by NOT LOSING GLASES.
Got this in a Cairn subscription box (so I didn't purchase it for myself, nor would I have done for reasons that will become clear). Maybe I'm missing something, but these seem massively overengineered. Eyewear retainers make sense, but why do we need retainers that ratchet? It feels entirely unnecessary. It seems like the kind of product that was presented on Shark Tank, and the sharks' response was "Who would ever need something?" It's an innovation for a problem that doesn't seem to exist.
I'm not saying they don't work. Honestly, I haven't tried them. I'm sure they work as advertised. I just don't understand why they exist.
