ProKnee recommends our 1” Foam Insert for any wearer who will be on their knees for 8 or more hours a day, who has had knee problems or surgery, who weighs over 200 lbs. or who prefers the maximum protection that ProKnee has to offer.

This depends on the application they are being used for, and the care and maintenance performed by the user. Replacement parts are available and recommended to extend the life of the kneepads.

Our kneepads can be used when working with carpet, hardgoods, softgoods, VCT, ceramics, hardwood, laminates, epoxy, concrete finishing, carpentry, roofing (with approved safety tie off devices), HVAC, automotive, airline, shipbuilding, plumbing, electrical, and many more.

Approximately half of our carpet installer customers use them with a knee kicker.

It varies from 1 day to 1 week, depending on usage and application.

How NOT to measure for our kneepads
Find out what size your ProKnee kneepads are

Using the ProMeasure or following ProKnee measuring guidelines will work for the majority of our customers. However, if someone has a high instep or tall boots, it can throw off the size. Please verify that you have the correct size kneepads BEFORE you wear them on a job to avoid a restocking fee. If you have the correct size, the kneepads will sit on the top of your shoe/boot and will be about ¼” to ½” above your knee.

For the AB measurement you would round DOWN to the nearest size. (ex. if you measure 21 3/4”, select 21.5”)
For the C measurement you would round UP to the nearest size.
(ex. if you measure 12 1/4”, select 12.5”)

We warranty the plastic frames and buckles against breakage, Foam Inserts against losing its compression set (if inserts feel flat), and separating from the frame (slight tearing of foam where attached to the frame is considered normal and excluded from warranty).
