OK, so I’m assuming that you own a pair of Crocs and you want to know how to put those jibbitz charms on your shoes. You’ve come to the right place!
To add Jibbits to your Crocs, it’s an easy process. Pick up your Crocs in one hand and a Jibbitz charm in the other hand. Line the back of the Jibbitz at a 45 degree angle to the hole you wish to house the Jibbitz. Push the Jibbitz charm into the whole and spin the charm while firmly pushing down toward the Crocs.
I find it easier to add the Jibbitz charm if I place the Crocs against a hard surface, like the floor or a table or counter. I also place my hand inside the Crocs to provide some resistance around the hole that I’m pressing the Jibbitz into.

If you want to remove the Jibbitz charm, then you basically do the same thing. I have the Crocs on a hard surface, I place my hand inside the Crocs and push up on the bottom of the Jibbitz charm. With my other hand, I grab the Jibbitz on top and pull and twist. The Jibbitz comes of quite easily.

- Line up the black bottom of Jibbitz so that it will be placed on the center over one of those holes in Crocs.
