Use Baseball Glove Laces
to repair your Gloves
Baseball glove laces are available in single strings, in bundles or come in glove repair kits. The laces are usually 48-72 inches long, 3/16 to 1/4 inch thick and are made of strong leather. You can choose from several colors.
You might also need a glove lacing kit, which costs about $9-15. A glove repair kit that includes one needle and one lace costs about $9. One 48" long lace costs about $5.
The Rawlings Baseball Accessories Set costs about $32. It includes a glove repair tool, a glove lace and other accessories.
The procedure for relacing the glove is as follows:
1. Soften the new lace with glove oil or glove conditioner.
2. Remove the broken lace with a hand tool.
3. Tie a knot at the end of the new lace.
4. Push the lacing needle through the starting hole.
5. Insert the new lace in the top of the lacing tool and pull the needle with the lace through the hole. The knot should fit tight over the first hole.
6. Continue this procedure for all holes.
7. At the end of the pattern, tie another knot at the end of the lace and cut off any excess of the lace. The lacing should be tight and the knot should fit tight over the last hole.
