What are QUICK TIPS®?

QUICK TIPS® are instant heel caps for repairing worn-out heel tips on stilettos & high heel pumps. These durable caps cover the exposed metal nail & stop the clicking. Great for in-between shoe repairs or if you don't live near a shoe repair shop.

Choose between two types of QUICK TIPS®: Slip-On Caps and Cap & Wrap. Both repair heel tips, just in different ways. Compare products.

What's the difference between QUICK TIPS® Slip-On Caps and QUICK TIPS® Cap & Wrap?

Both products instantly repair worn down heel tips and require no tools. See which heel cap is right for your needs:

QUICK TIPS® Slip-On Cap is our extra-discreet solution. It's a slip-on cap that is specially tapered to fit snugly and discreetly over your heel, so it's virtually unnoticeable. Perfect for quick fixes and protecting newer heels from wearing down.

QUICK TIPS® Cap & Wrap is our heavy-duty, extra-secure solution. Caps lock onto your heel with our no-residue, self-fusing wrap. The cap is made from extra-strong rubber, and the wrap ensures a secure, custom fit for a lasting repair.

Why do heel tips need repair?

Rubber heel tips protect your shoe heel and help create a nonslip grip. Over time, the rubber part of the heel tip wears down revealing the metal nail used to attach the rubber tip to your heel. Once the metal nail is exposed, the heel tip should be repaired to avoid the clicking sound, slipping, and damage to your shoes and floors.

QUICK TIPS® Slip-On Caps

Do I need to remove the old heel tip before applying QUICK TIPS® Slip-On Caps?

No, it fits over your existing heel tip (and any exposed nail).

How long does QUICK TIPS® Slip-On Caps last?

Caps are made of high performance, flexible rubber. For longest-lasting wear:

  • Apply the tightest-fitting cap
  • Avoid stepping into cracks & gaps
  • Use before your rubber heel tip erodes all the way down to just the metal nub

Does the Slip-On Cap work on all heel shapes?

Yes. Its patent pending taper design allow it to seamlessly contour to any heel shape (horseshoe, round, triangular, square).

How do I know what size I need?

QUICK TIPS Slip-On Caps are available in 4 sizes and fit heel stems 7-15mm. Always choose the tightest fitting cap, and size down if your heel is between sizes. Use a ruler to measure your heel, or print this guide to find the right size for your shoes.

  • X-Small: 7-9 mm
  • Small: 9-11 mm
  • Medium: 11-13 mm
  • Large: 13-15 mm

How do I remove it?

Firmly wiggle the cap back and forth to loosen it. Then, gently pull to remove the cap.

QUICK TIPS® Cap & Wrap

Does QUICK TIPS® Cap & Wrap work on all degrees of worn heel tips?

Yes. It works even when only the nail remains. However, caps last much longer when you use them before the rubber erodes all the way down to just the nail.

How long does QUICK TIPS® Cap & Wrap last?

Caps are made of high performance, extra-hard rubber for maximum durability. For longest-lasting wear:

  • Choose the right cap size
  • Wrap band very tightly
  • Avoid stepping into cracks & gaps
  • Use before your rubber heel tip erodes all the way down to just the metal nub

Do they work on all heel shapes?

The cap is horseshoe shaped, but fits over a variety of heel shapes (including round, triangular, and square).

Do I need to remove the old heel tip before applying QUICK TIPS® Cap & Wrap?

No, the cap fits over your existing heel tip (and any exposed nail).

What are self-fusing bands and why's it needed?


Self-fusing bands are made of specially formulated silicone that fuse together when stretched & wrapped under tension. It permanently bonds to only itself, leaving no residue. How it works.

Unlike Slip-On Caps that stretch to grip your heel, these caps are made of extra-hard, heavy-duty rubber material. The self-fusing band wraps around the cap & heel to create an instant seal to fasten them together. Because the band leaves no residue, it's safe on your heels.

Does it change the height of the heel?

The cap is similar in size to a standard heel tip. It will increase the height of your heel by about 3 mm.

How do I know what size I need?

QUICK TIPS® Cap & Wrap comes in 3 sizes. Print this guide to find the right size for your shoes. It's important to carefully measure your heel tip to choose the right cap size.

  • Small: 9.5 x 10 mm
  • Medium: 12 x 12.5 mm
  • Large: 15 x 15 mm

Do you need any special tools to apply QUICK TIPS® Cap & Wrap?

No. Unlike all other DIY replacement heel tips, no tools or glue are required. QUICK TIPS® Caps attach over the existing worn-down tip, eliminating the need for tools. Each pack includes heel caps and self-fusing bands. The self-fusing band is applied around the cap & heel to fasten them together.

The band is not fusing together. What's going on?

Stretching activates the fusing properties. Stretch the band at least 3x its length while wrapping to ensure proper fusing and a strong bond.

Note: Liquids, lotions, and oils prevent the band from self-fusing. Before applying, make sure both shoes and hands are dry and free of any debris, lotion, and oils.

The caps aren't staying on my heel or they fell off. What's going on?

QUICK TIPS® Cap & Wrap are designed to be a semi-permanent solution when applied properly. If your cap falls off within only a few days, follow these tips when reapplying to ensure the cap stays on your heel.

Can I super glue the cap on?

We don't recommend it, because super glue doesn't work on high-friction areas like a heel tip. Although super glue is great at resisting direct pulling, it's weak at side push and pulls. The walking motion is naturally angled, and sidewalks and other walking surfaces are full of little bumps that cause super glue bond to loosen & crack. Super glues work best where there is no movement or stress.

How do I remove it?

The band leaves no residue, so removing QUICK TIPS® Cap & Wrap is easy. Carefully slice the band with scissors and peel the band off. To avoid cutting the heel fabric, only slice the band where it overlaps the cap.

STOPPERS™ Heel Protectors

How long does STOPPERS last?

STOPPERS are reusable and made of a strong, tear-resistant rubber for maximum durability. Its sturdy base is highly resistant to warping & puncturing from the heel.

For longest-lasting wear, remove STOPPERS after use (when storing your shoes) to prevent it from stretching out.

Does STOPPERS work on all heel shapes?

Yes. Its patent pending taper design allow it to seamlessly contour to any heel shape (horseshoe, round, triangular, square).

How do I know what size I need?

STOPPERS are available in 4 sizes and fit heel stems 6-13mm. Use a ruler to measure your heel, or print this guide to find the right size for your shoes.

  • XX-Small: 6-7 mm
  • X-Small: 7-9 mm
  • Small: 9-11 mm
  • Medium: 11-13 mm

Does STOPPERS work on any surface?

Works on any soft or uneven surface such as grass, gravel, cobblestone, brick, grates, firmly packed sand, wood floors, and decks.

How does STOPPERS work?

STOPPERS’ patent pending taper design gently grips & contours to your heel shape for a secure, seamless fit. With 3-10x more surface area than your bare heel tip, this heel protector prevents your heels from sinking into grass & slipping between cracks.

How do I remove STOPPERS?

Twist them off, like removing a wine cork. Avoid trying to pull them straight off as this might pull out the rubber heel tip. Just keep twisting, and they'll start to loosen. It's also a good idea to clean off the STOPPERS, so they're ready for the next use.
