Who invented the aglet?

Asked by Frederick Villa

The aglet, which is typically plastic, was invented in 1790 by Harvey Kennedy. The aglet protects the end of the shoe lace from fraying and makes the process of tying and threading the lace through the eyelet easier. There are also more luxury aglets made from metal.
