How to Put Jibbitz on Your Crocs The Easy Way!
Want to put Jibbitz on your Crocs as quickly, easily, and safely as possible?
There’s a fast and easy way to do it that will stop the pinholes from poking your feet that I don’t see anyone else talking about.
And yes, I’ve bought everything from LED pineapple and black cat Jibbitz to “Calm Down” pins. So I know a thing or two (sadly). Heck, I even have a glass of red wine Jibbitz for Friday workday luck.
OK, enough of how sad my life is.
Here’s How to Put on Your Jibbitz Croc Charms
First, Let’s Cover the Basics
In case you somehow landed on this article from space, let me get a few basics out of the way.
Obviously, you need to choose your Jibbitz first. If you don’t have any, here are a few of my favorites.
No, I am not a grown adult with all of these Crocs Charms…
Next, you need to decide which hole you’ll be placing these very grown up decorations in.
You have a total of 26 holes to choose from - 13 on each shoe. I highly recommend you space them out and don’t fill every hole.
What I do is a “one in every corner and one in the middle” type design. That’s 5 per shoe. You only want to fill about half of the holes or else you might start to get some discomfort.
OK, let’s put these bad boys in your shoes.
Method #1 - Off The Ground
Method #2 - On The Ground
OK, just in case this isn’t your bag, let me cover putting Jibbitz on your Crocs with the shoe on the ground.
Step 3 - PUSH!
Now, use your whole hand to SMASH the charm in until you hear that same delicious POP
Taking Your Jibbitz Out of Your Crocs
Removing your Crocs Charms is super easy.
All you have to do is pinch the area around the charm and pull the Jibbitz out at a 45-degree angle. Just don’t go too fast or you might damage the hole and make it more difficult to hold a charm the next time around.
What if You Have a Different Type of Crocs?
Just in case you’re a sociopath who doesn’t get normal Crocs clogs, I’ll cover a few of your other options for you here.
Tie-on Jibbitz are even easier than traditional ones. Just find an area on your Crocs sandals strap and center that bad boy on there. Wrap the tie around and clip it to the other side until it locks into place.
This works just like any other clip-on thing you’ve ever used in your life. Pinch the clip on the back until it opens and place it firmly anywhere on the clogs you want to display it.
To remove it, just push the clip again and take it off.
Boom, you’re adulting.
I’m not sure if this is sad or not, seeing as how I’m an adult…but I’ve done this long enough to have learned some helpful Jibbitz tips for you and your kids.
1. Jibbitz Can go on Just About Anything
I put my Crocs Charms on all my shoes (the clip-on or tie-on ones), and I even use them for little decorations around the house.
My kid’s backpack, on the mantle, in the play den_they can go just about anywhere.
2. Jibbitz Make an Awesome DIY Project
If you want to practice some arts and crafts, make a DIY charm bracelet with whatever Jibbitz you have. It’s fun to mix and match or try to complete a set.
You’ll need some jump rings and needle-nosed pliers to attach the charms to the bracelet. That is, unless you’re really crafty and can drill some holes in the charms. Up to you!
3. Jibbitz Are for All Types of Crocs
Jibbitz work on adult-sized and kids Crocs as well as Baby Crocs, so don’t hold back!
Q: How do you put Jibbitz on Crocs?
A: You put Jibbitz on Crocs by placing the charm in the hole and pushing down until you hear a POP! Noise.
Q: Do Jibbitz fit all Crocs?
A: Yes, Jibbitz fit all Crocs: Adult, kid, and baby sizes. If you don’t have Crocs with holes, then there are other types of Jibbitz for those shoes like tie-on or clip-on Jibbitz.
Q: How do you wear Jibbitz charms?
A: You wear Jibbitz Charms any way you want to, but the point is to be uniquely you and to be creative. For example, why not have a group of bees flying toward a flower on the other shoe? Or maybe use your Jibbitz to showcase what TV shows or movies you’re into. Wear them any way you want.
