Guess I'm missing how soft gummy sticky tape would be better then a hard slippery piece of plastic (like a boot sole)?

 

If he tapes over the moving AFD he tapes it in place, so it can't move *with* the boot sole like it's supposed to?   Taping to the boot, any extra friction between AFD and boot sole isn't a factor since they're supposed to move together anyway.

If you're just testing, I gently place a lifter under the sole and click in. No tape on anything.

Thanks, I mis-read your post yesterday, but i wasn't thinking of taping anything, so probably a good thing you raised it. I do the same as Epic^
