Hotronics and Aline inserts

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Has anyone installed hotronics with Aline inserts? If so i have a question. Yes this sounds stupid but hey rather be safe than sorry. I assume that the heating element goes on the top of the insert. and you need to cut a channel in the bottom of the insert. Yes it has instructions and yes i have read them just need to be 100% sure. Any way if anyone has installed them and taken pictures that would be great. Thanks for all your help and not laughing at the stupid question posted above

I have that setup and definitely not a stupid question. No channels cut. My boot fitter cut a x slit in the Aline footbed under where the disc is. You feed the cord through the footbed then through a small hole in the bottom of your boot liner then feed out inbetween boot liner and shell. He put a single sided adhesive cover over the entire footbed that covers the disc and holds it in place. On the outside of my boot liner he covered the cord with the same thin adhesive liner as not to wear my down my cord where it is in contact with the shell. His name is Benny at Inner Bootworks in Stowe. He did a fantastic job. They work like a charm and my boots fit like a glove w/o obstructions. I don't have Photobucket and cannot post pics. If you PM me I can send pics directly.

That is exactly per Hotronics instructions -- great description.

I had to do some boot surgery a few days ago and took pics. I'll try and post them later. It's pretty easy, you can do it yourself.

How are you guys liking the Aline foot beds? I've used mine for two years and they work great for the price. No issues at all.

The above description sounds like what Jack at the Wilderness House in Boston just did for my installation. He glues a 'cover' over the top of the Aline so that your sock won't 'rub off' the heater element.
