Boot board moving/slipping

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Having an issue from time to time with the boot board on the Lange RX boot sliding forward when I am putting my foot in the boot.  It seems that the sole of the ZipFit liner and the soft nature of the RX boot board seem to want to stay together and then it all ends up sliding forward in the toe box.  Make sense?  Have tried to use duct tape, double sided tape w/o success.  Any suggestions on what type of glue that might stand up in this application?

 

Thanks

perhaps zipfit liner is to small.

Screw it down to the clog.  Many boot companies do this as a standard practice.

Be sure to use a sheet metal screw with a flat head and screw it in flush with surface!wink.gif

Thanks - the bottom of the boot board on that boot is pretty hollowed out.  will take a look but a screw makes sense - just could not find tape that worked and the contact cement I had was useless.  Screw would allow to have it removeable if needed.  Now, if I can tweek my ZipFits a bit - im golden.  Love those liners - but not really the "in/out" and think I need some more cork in the ankle/tongue area.

if adding more cork to the zip fit be sure to do the tongue first, not too much then go ski it for a day or two at least before adding anything round the ankles...you will be amazed how little you need to tighten things up

^ thanks  -  it seems that it takes a while for me to find that "spot" on the buckle (second one down from top) each day.  Other I ski with just "buckle and go"  Ive learned not to go too tight too soon in the AM.  Those liners are great - nice& warm, firm.  They came from another shell that i was using, maybe I will try the stock Lange RX liners this year too.
