  1. 1

    Purchase an Oakley Half Jacket frame accessory kit. Purchase the kit directly from Oakley online or from a local Oakley store or dealer. To find a local Oakley store or dealer, use the store locator tool (see Resources) on Oakley's website.

  2. 2

    Hold your Oakley Half Jacket frames securely in one hand, with the arms facing you. With your other hand, grasp the ear sock firmly with thumb and forefinger and begin to gently slide it towards you in a rolling, rotating motion. Continue to slide and rotate the ear sock until it comes off. If you are having difficulty removing the ear sock with one hand, place the frames on a secure surface such as a table and proceed to roll the ear sock off.

  3. 3

    Squeeze a tiny drop of dishwashing fluid onto your fingers and gently rub it onto the arm from which you removed the ear sock.

  4. 4

    Slide the bigger hole of the new ear sock over the end of the slippery arm in a gentle rolling motion. Push and slide the ear sock on in this rolling motion until it's firmly in place.

  5. 5

    Repeat the steps for the other ear sock.

  6. 6

    Rinse the frames off with warm water to remove the dishwashing fluid. Pat dry with a towel.

Tips and warnings

  • Change the look and appearance of your glasses with different colour ear socks.
  • Avoid forcing the ear sock into place, which can cause damage to the rubber.
