Bulletproof your knees.

Do you lose feeling after you’ve been kneeling down? Are you stiff when you try to get up, after kneeling? Are your knees sore – especially in one area? Are your ankle joints sore?

In the UK, 1 in 5 adults over 45 years of age have knee pain. Many of them work in trades. Can you afford to take six months off work for a knee operation? McAlpine Kneepads with Redbacks Cushioning will save you from pain, and bulletproof your knees.

What do the trades say?

  • “I’m a plumber and I honestly can say I’ve tried every type going. This product is the best out there, I bought my first pair back in 2013 and I’ve only had to buy 2 more since then. I use them every day. Brilliant product and don’t half save your knees. I really do notice the difference between these and your cheaper ones.”

  • “As a professional painter & decorator, we do spend a lot of time on our knees. I bought these knee pads as I wanted something of quality and something that would last a long time. I was not disappointed, these knee pads are the best ones I have ever purchased. Very very comfortable, and if you happen to kneel on a nail or screw you do not feel it. They are slightly on the heavy side but I am so glad I bought these ones, they should last me for many years. “

  • ” Worth every penny. Being over 50 my knees do feel it….these pads really do work. A bit bulky and you do need to make sure your knee lands on the pad but in spite of these matters I thoroughly recommend…just rewired a house and really noticed the difference. Other insert knee pads just do not give the same level of cushioning. Too early to tell about durability. Dear… but worth it! “

  • ” I’ve been using these for around six weeks (at the time of writing the review) and am loving them! So much more comfortable than the standard foam/gel type which ends up compressing and doing nothing for your knees. They support the knee, hold their shape, are great on rough surfaces or those littered with debris, and help prevent the ingress of sharp sticky outy nails/screws due to their honeycomb construction, and best of all can be left in the trousers to wash them
