Easy Golf Shoe Buying Tips to Save Money and Find the Perfect Fitting Golf Shoe? Golfing shoes are really not that much different then any other shoe. The number one most important thing when selecting any type of shoes is that it fits comfortable and it is a style and feel you like. If you are out shopping for golfing shoes and trying to select the perfect one for the first and foremost thing you must decide is do the shoes fit well and do you like them.
Get Rid Of The Old In the past golf shoes were made with small metal spikes in the soles that help with traction. However, today most golf courses no longer allow these types of shoes on the course and you will not be able to play golf with them. So if you have old golf shoes like these then it is time to throw them in the trash and upgrade. Also if you think you have found a great bargain on a pair of golf shoes at a local yard sale or other place makes sure they are not metal spike shoes. The modern golf shoes have a hard plastic spike on them that is much easier on the grass of the golf course.
Brand Name Or No Name Many people go with a brand name they might know or feel loyal to or even worse yet because their favorite golfer endorses a pair they purchase that show. However, more important then brand name, endorsements or anything else about the shoe is the fit. Even though you might like a particular brand if you can not wear it comfortably then it is not going to work for you. Your game is not going to improve because it is endorsed by Tiger Woods.
On Sale Or Good Price Don't pick a shoe just because it is on sale or has a really great markdown that makes you feel like you are getting a good deal. Again if the shoe is not comfortable and you can not wear it properly then you are not saving any money by purchasing it on sale. So regardless of the price or discount on a particular model make sure that you try it on in the store and give it a complete test to make sure it is comfortable before purchasing.
This axiom is true for any purchase that you make you must really know yourself. For example do you only play golf once every few months? If so be realistic and do not spend top dollar for a professional line shoe. Instead save some of your money and look at golfing as a fun hobby. However if you are seriously addicted to golfing as many of us are and you are out on the green a few days each week then you probably can not afford to try a bargain brand to save a few bucks. If this really is you then go ahead and spend the extra money and buy a top of the line shoe. This really goes for any sports equipment purchase that you might make.
If you are in the market to buy a new pair of shoes make sure you are honest with yourself and truly assess your needs and then decide how much you will spend for a shoe accordingly. When you actually get to the shop try on as many pairs as you can and really gie them a good trial test and see if the are comfortable. Don't become persuaded by salesmen, advertisements, endorsements and other sources that want to sway your decision. Instead find what is comfortable and fits your price range.
Bunk Bed Safety: Tips and Guidelines for Bunk Bed Owners
When children see bunk beds, days of fun play begin to materialize before their eyes. Bunk beds become the new fort, castle, or house that children will play in all day long. But bunk beds can also be the source of band-aids, bruises, and tears. To keep everyone happy and safe, we have created this Bunk Bed Safety Guide to remind children and adults alike of the rules that go with owning a bunk bed. Even if your bunk bed purchase is not for children, the tips shared here are still an important and valuable part of owning a bunk bed.
Let's start with some general safety tips!
Children under 6 years of age should not be allowed on the top bunk
Do not use water or sleep flotation mattresses with your bunk bed
Prohibit jumping and general horseplay on or under the bunk bed (Sorry kids!)
Periodically check the bunk bed to ensure that all hardware is tightened and in its proper position, and that the bunk bed in generally free from damage
Do not use any substitute hardware or parts. Please contact us immediately if there any parts or hardware are missing from your bunk bed when it is delivered. We will be able to assist you in getting the correct replacement parts delivered, free of charge.
More detailed guidelines...
Mattresses: Please use only standard mattresses on the upper bunk. By law, manufacturers must label bunk beds with information on the appropriate size mattress to be used with their bunk bed. Follow these instructions to prevent entrapment or injury. On the top bunk, ensure that the mattress and foundation do not exceed 8" and that there is at least 5" of space between the top of the mattress and the top of the guardrails. Again, please do not use any type of water or sleep flotation mattress with your bunk bed.
Guardrails: Guardrails are included on bunk beds for everyone's safety. Whether a child or adult is sleeping on the top bunk, always use guardrails on the long sides of the top bunk. Even if you are placing the bunk bed against a wall, use the full-length guardrail on the top bunk to ensure no one gets trapped between the bunk and the wall. Again, please do not use any substitute parts. Call us and we will be happy to get replacement parts shipped to you, free of charge.
Top Bunk Safety: Always use the ladder for getting into, and out of, the top bunk. Do not allow more than one person on the top bunk at a time. Young children, (under 6 years of age) should not be allowed on the top bunk. A night light may be especially helpful for children who get up in the middle of the night and need to get down from the top bunk. The maximum weight capacity for top bunks is provided by the manufacturer. Do not exceed the manufacturer's maximum weight capacity. Again, please check your bunk bed from time to time to make sure that it is free from damage, and that all hardware is tightened and in working condition.
Finally, one of the most important safety guidelines for bunk beds: To prevent strangulation, never attach or hang anything to the bunk bed that is not designed for use with the bunk bed. Examples would be jump ropes, belts, or any type of hooks.
