You can convert your wire-frame temple tip to a cable end. This is great for children and athletes or anyone who prefers a tighter frame fit. Just snip off end and slide on!! Set of two.

This process is not suitable for plastic or flat temples. Call or chat to see if your frame is eligible.
Instructions For Adding Cable Ends
These will not work with frames that have thick metal temples or full plastic temples.
Remove plastic temple ends (can use hot air from blow dryer) and test to make sure metal temple will fit. Avoid heating lenses.
Measure frame temple to crotch of the ear and mark the temple. Cover with a cloth and cut approx. 10mm behind your mark. Measure twice - cut once. Keep in mind all cuts will be different for all people due to sizes. We use wire cutters to snip off the ends.
Remove burr edges if need be with sand paper.
These will have a tight fit so that stay in place. Twist back and forth to get them to slide on the metal frame. Once satisfied with fit you can lightly sand and clean with alcohol to remove any oils.
You can carefully apply a drop of glue if need be (we do not recommend). We have not needed the glue to make the temple ends stay secure. Glue is optional.
