George T. Adams can still put on his socks at age 85, but may not be able to do that in a year.
Thatâ€™s why he invented the â€œSox Butler,â€ a device that helps a person put on socks without having to bend down.
Adams first tried looking in medical supply stores for a similar device.
â€œAnd they didnâ€™t have anything,â€ Adams said. â€œOn the way home I said, â€˜Hell, Iâ€™ll just make something.â€
It took Adams a few days to come up with the design back in 2010. Heâ€™s made a few improvements since then.
Adams charges $9 for the Sox Butler. Thatâ€™s about what it costs for the materials and labor.
