Swimming Earplugs (Custom Made)

Your custom made swim plugs allow for a perfect fitting earplug that stops water entering your ears. They are commonly used for regular swimmers and for people who have grommets. Like with an ear impression, a sponge is placed down your ear and the ear is filled with a silicon material. This takes around 5 minutes to set. Once set it is removed and we then have the exact shape and size of your ear. Your mould is then trimmed, smoothed and coated to provide a more water tight fit. You can choose from a range of colours to get the look that you are after.

Shooters Earplugs
