Question Boot Lace Protectors

I'm one of those people that lets the back end of my board sit on the top of my free boot when I'm riding up the chairlift. The board's edge ripped the shit out of my 1st pair of boots, so I'm looking for lace protectors. However, I can't find them online except on ebay, and with shipping it would cost me like $30. I really dont care if its the kinds that you velcro around the boot or sting the laces through. Does anyone know where I can find a boot lace protector online? I know bakoda and R.E.D. make them.

Don't put the edge of your board on your foot. What you do is hook your toe-box through the heel cup of your bindings. It works just the same, but will save your boots. Or just bust out a roll of duct tape.

Just letting a board hang is harsh on the knee's though, especially those who already have existing problems.

For sure... it can get fairly painfull.

As boarder said, just hook through your heelcup, it's pretty much the same positioning and saves laces.

For me its more harsh on my ankle. When you say hook thru the heelcup do you mean like this:
