Tekko Sizing - Style A
To size take a thin strip of paper. And wrap it around your middle finger twice (not tight).
Using a felt tip pen, hold the point on the paper for 5 seconds so the ink has time to penetrate all the way through the paper. Unwind the paper. Measure the distance from the first dot to the second dot. This is the number you will use when ordering.
If you have knuckle problems or enlargements please measure the largest part of the finger.
Tekko Sizing – Styles B,C and D
The hand size can be taken by grasping a ruler or yard stick in the palm of the hand. The zero mark of the measuring should be on the pinky finger side of the hand. Read the distance to the other side of the hand and subtract 1/8”. This is the hand measurement.
