Dressing sticks help assist with putting on and taking off clothing.


Dressing sticks are long, sturdy sticks (usually about 27-inches) constructed of wood, metal, or plastic. There is a metal S-shaped hook at one end coated with smooth vinyl to provide a snag-free grip on the clothing. The opposite end has either a smaller hook to assist with pulling zippers up and down, or a shoe horn for assistance with slipping into shoes.


FOP community members use dressing sticks for many different purposes other than dressing, such as reaching and turning on/off light switches, pulling an object closer to them, pushing doors open or even to help them reposition themselves in bed by using it to push again a mattress surface.

Dressing sticks can be hard to use at first and may require practice. This video shows how to use a dressing stick with a variety of different types of clothing.
