HOW TO: skatelace/float tee warrior g5


Recommended Posts

Hey guys 

Quick little guide for those wanting to skate lace a g5 glove. 

Its a little more involved than some gloves and has a little cutting 


Undo the knot, this is the ends of the pocket string 

Once pulled through you just pull all the cord through till you get to the end. 


This finishes inside the glove. 

You need to cut this on the outside and push it into the glove. Then you knot your skate lace and come back from the inside of the finger section 


And thats one side ready. 

The thumb side tails down inside the glove also. Again cut next to the glove and push through, for this section you need small needle nose pliers to help get the skate lace through. 


Again knot and pull through, i cut the hard end off the skate lace 20200724_091321.thumb.jpg.5593fb52a51b3a7df8117cab7dc45348.jpg

Now we start skate lacing the pocket. Not the easiest. But you will find your way. Theres a set pattern were you always miss the first loop and always come from behind. 




We need two new holes 


Once you're out of holes we next weave the pocket a bit as we're floating the tee and pull it back through where it was anchored originally


Now we dont want it too slack, as it will loosen up.

So other side is the same finish your pattern and weave the lace. Leaving the end of the tee loose to take impact. 


The tails go back through the disc, this is also plastic so perfect place to tie off. I leave length and tuck it in should i need to adjust. 



And the glove finished


Hopefully this guide helps a few people out

I made my own needle with lathe, cause here in Finland is diffucult to find dealer..

In uk you can buy it like here: https://www.greenmanbushcraft.co.uk/paracord-needles.htm

Turtolan Suutari @ Tampere sells almost all possible variations. Atleast those ones you need for hockey projects.

Nice job Jake. Wasn't there the main edgelace nearby the boot of the T? Cutting the T like that you did is something I try to avoid as it gets stretched very hard when puck hits.

Webbing for Warrior pocket would be easiest by following the original route. Of course when at the floating end of T it needs to be improvised.

Nope. Same on the g4 its the binding of the glove. There made different to most other gloves. 

I did the same on my g4 no issues, as the original anchor points still used. Its just skate lace not the pocket attached to it. Screenshot_20200724-192935.thumb.png.4ac089fd6ce5d5a5e5339ded706716fd.png

If I were more daring I'd give this a shot. I actually bought two gloves with my custom G5 set mainly because I seem to wear out my gloves first and secondly so I could send one to FactoryMAD to get a floating T mod done (any other magic he suggests) with bungie lace. Once I get that glove back I might just give this a go with the one I have thanks for posting this and detailing the steps so well!
