Why Should You Care About Your Temple Tips?
More than Just Aesthetic Pleasers
Remember how Cinderella’s shoe was the perfect fit? Well, think of the temple tips as the shoe's cushion. It's not just about looking fabulous (which they undeniably do); they ensure your shades sit snugly behind your ears.
Red Marks and Discomfort – No, Thank You!

A Matter of Balance
Ever had your sunglasses play see-saw on your face? Yep, without those temple tips, your sunglasses won’t sit balanced on your face. And we wouldn't want them taking a nosedive now, would we?

Softening the Old Tips
Warm 'Em Up: Using the hairdryer on a medium setting, direct the warm air to the old temple tips. It makes them pliable and easier to remove.
Time to Play Dentist!
Tweeze 'Em Out: Grip the temple tip with the pliers and gently wiggle it off. Think of it as pulling a tooth but with less drama and no anesthesia!
Let's Slide into New Beginnings
Heating the Newbies: Just as with the old temple tips, warm the replacements slightly. This ensures they slide on with ease.
The Gentle Push: Slide the new temple tips onto the arms. Ensure they're a snug fit. If Cinderella's shoe fit, so should these!
Step back, admire your handiwork, and give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back. Wasn't that almost therapeutic?
Troubleshooting Tips for the Clumsy and the Confused
What If the Temple Tip Just Won't Budge?
Ever tried opening a jam jar that feels like it's glued shut? Sometimes, temple tips can be just as stubborn. If heating doesn't do the trick, try soaking the temple in warm soapy water for a few minutes. This should loosen it up.
Did You Jump the Gun?
Maybe you got too excited and accidentally damaged the arm. It happens to the best of us. If the damage isn't severe, a little heat and reshaping might do the trick. If not, a trip to the store might be in order.
Ray Ban Ready: Flaunt Those Shades!
You did it! Armed with your new knowledge and freshly repaired Ray Bans, you're ready to take on the world (or at least a sunny day).
