Halocho #550 - Shoelaces and drawstrings

One may not lace a shoelace into shoes for the first time on Shabbat.

If existing shoelaces are pulled out, one can only replace them on Shabbat if the holes are wide enough that it's not a big bother to thread them.

Similarly, if a drawstring gets pulled out of clothes, one can only re-thread it if the opening is wide enough so that the operation is not a big bother.
