    http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?CFVQV 4 July 2008 Knee Pads and Weeding Tool.

    These Knee Pads don't slip down the leg in use, and basically stay in place when getting up and down. The flexible joint is the key to not slipping down the leg.They cost about $25.00 and are practicable and useful for gardening, and any other vocation requiring the wearer to kneel. An added plus is the knee area of clothing remains clean. The padding is sufficient for any rough surface. I usually put them on when working in the garden, and it is a joy to kneel down when required. These pads button on with two simple rubber straps.The pads make picking strawberry picking a pleasure. Don't leave home with out a pair!

    The common type usually available in stores is for all practical purposes is difficult to use, since they slip out of position, when getting down and up and walking around. The common variety without the flexible joint costs about $7.00, so there is quite a price differential.

    The weeding tool is useful for those hard to remove weeds and tuffs of grass with strong numerous roots.

    If you ever crawled around on your knees picking strawberries, digging our weeds between plants in the garden, smoothed a cement surface, installed baseboards, or done any work requiring getting up and down fairly often and resting on your knees you would know and appreciate knee pads that stay in place on the knee. As mentioned typical knee pads slip off the knee and are essentially of little usefulness.

    But if you never did any work in your life, the usefulness of the depicted knee pads would have no meaning.
