Always have to push back the glasses that slip off? Maybe it’s time to make some adjustments so fake Oakleys glasses don’t slip anymore. If you’re in a hurry, there are many quick fixes you can try at home to temporarily hold the glasses in place. For a more permanent solution, you may have to adjust the frames so that they fit better on your head and won’t slip through the day.
Repair knockoff Oakley glasses at home
Wash your face clean to remove natural oils. Oily skin can cause glasses to slip off your nose. The most effective way is to use natural skin care products that can remove oil and wash your face 1-2 times a day. Apply the cleanser to your skin, then rinse off thoroughly and put on your glasses to see if it still slips.
Your body may produce more oil at the end of the day, so keep cleaning wipes handy so you can wipe off excess oil at any time.
Frequent use of cleansers to remove oil may dry out the skin.
Wrap the hair rope around the temples to increase the friction. Prepare two hair ropes that match the color of the frame so they fit perfectly into the temples without being too obtrusive. Slide one of the hair ropes into the third of the temples, stopping to make a full circle. Pull the hair rope taut and thread it through the temples again. Continue looping a few times until the hair rope is snug against the temples, then repeat on the other side.
Try to keep the hair rope flat against the temples to avoid discomfort.
Try various thicknesses of hair rope to see which one fits best on the temple and is most comfortable to wear.
Apply wax to the center beam of your glasses to keep it from slipping. Glasses anti-slip wax comes in a lip balm-like tube that provides friction between the frame and the nose. Open the cap and apply a small amount of wax to the middle beam of the glasses. Put on your glasses and see if they still slip off easily. If it still slips, apply more wax.
You can buy glasses anti-slip wax online or at your local pharmacy.
WARNING: Glasses must fit snugly against the head for the anti-slip wax to work best. Go to an optical store or find an optometrist and have them measure your face to determine the right frame size for you.
Put heat shrink on the temples to make them tighter. When the heat shrink tube is heated, it shrinks according to the size of the attached item. Put the heat-shrink tubing around the temples on both sides and slide it up to fit snugly against your ears. Hold up the heat gun, set it to low temperature, and blow the heat shrink tube from a distance of 10-13 cm for 30 seconds to make it shrink.
You can buy heat shrink tubing at your local hardware store. Choose heat shrink tubing that matches the color and frame so it doesn’t look too obtrusive.
If you don’t have a heat gun, you can use a hair dryer set to the highest heat.
The heat gun should not be held against the glasses for too long or the frame will be damaged or melted.
Some frames have rubber strips on the temples that increase grip.
Adjust the frame
If your glasses keep slipping off your nose, consider changing the nose pads. Using the small screwdriver included in the eyeglass repair kit, loosen the screw on the nose pad and remove it. Pull out the old nose pads and replace them with new ones. Tighten the screws and repeat on the other side.
You can buy replacement nose pads of fake Oakley sunglasses online or at optical stores.
Optometrists can also change your nose pads for a small fee.
Tip: If your frame doesn’t have nose pads, you can buy non-slip pads to stick on the center bridge to keep your glasses in place.
