Place the ball of your foot upon the junction of babich (leather webbing) and the toe-hole. Now place the centre of your lampwick over the toe of your footwear and measure the length of lampwick required to allow the toe of your footwear to enter loop. This loop should also limit your footwear from entering the loop beyond your toes.
Next, wrap the lampwick ends around this loop from both ends until they meet in the centre.
Putting on your snowshoes
I will let the pictures demonstrate this process. One point I will mention here is that it helps to place your free foot upon the snowshoe to hold it in place. This process is reverssed to remove snowshoes.
