HOW DOES A BOOT JACK WORK?
A boot jack, also known as a boot pull, is a small shoe accessory that helps in the removal of (cowboy) boots. It has a u-shaped opening that holds on to the heel of the boot, and a flat area to which the wearer can apply counterweight with the opposite foot. The user would then pull his foot free of the front boot.
A boot jack has so many benefits as opposed to removing boots by hand:
It allows pulling your foot straight up and out of the boot.
By using your full body weight it allows to hold the boot in place. This gives much more leverage and a tighter grip.
There’s no need for the user to bend over or sit down to take the boots off. A dirty boot would make this even more inconvenient.
