How to use your clarks foot measuring gauge

Please read these instructions carefully before using the gauge.

To help you become confident using the Clarks Foot Measuring Gauge follow our step-by-step video and written instructions. Please take time to look at them before using the gauge and remember, measuring is only ever a guide. We also recommend that before you shop on line you take the time to take several practice measurements at a time when your child is happy to cooperate. This will help ensure you obtain the most accurate measurement when you are ready to shop.

 

How to use the toddler measuring gauge

Step one

Step One

Make sure your child is wearing socks that fit well. Sit them on someone else's lap, facing you with their legs dangling. Kneel in front of your child. If your child is able to sit on a chair please ensure this has a firm seat and they can sit safely with their knees bent.

Step two

Step Two

Hold the measuring gauge in your left hand with the toe slide end nearest your body. Rest your child's foot in the gauge with their heel in the heel rest – gently hold it in place with your left thumb.

Step three

Step Three

Keep the gauge parallel to the floor ensuring their knee and ankle stays at right angles throughout the measuring process.

Step four

Step Four

With your right hand gently hold down their toes to prevent their toes from curling. Move the toe slide until it just touches the tip of the longest toe.

Step five

Step Five

Make a note of the length measurement indicated by the black lines in the circular window. Don't forget to add any extra millimetres from the side scale to the number shown in the window.

Step six

Step Six

The width tape will automatically be lined up at the correct part of the foot. Pull the tape gently until it is just resting on the foot. Do not pull the tape tight as this will give a narrow measurement.

Step seven

Step Seven

Hold the tape end out parallel to the floor. Looking down and making sure you do not twist the gauge read off the number where the tape comes out under the tape carrier indicated by the three black arrows. Make a note of the width measurement in mm.

Step eight

Step Eight

Enter the longest length measurement and widest width in the size calculator. This will tell you your child's Clarks shoe size. If you are in any doubt about the measurements you have taken, simply visit one of our stores, where one of our trained members of staff will be happy to offer you a free measuring consultation.
