J-pads: Do they work?

I know there have been posts about dealing with heel lift, but I am specifically asking about j-pads. Has any of you ever attached them to the lining of your boots? If so, did it help at all? I'm thinking of ordering a couple pairs from the Tognar website: Tognar Ski and Snowboard Boot Fitting Tools, Insoles, Footbeds and Inserts
The heel lift I get isn't terrible, but there is some room there that needs to be filled.

Man - I thought j pads were the things my wife used for a few days out of every month....

I guess you could stick them in your boot too

Sorry guy - I don't use pads of any type

I put a J-Pad in one boot....worked perfectly to stop my heel lift.

Super feet are great insoles, but don't address the issue of space around my ankle/achilles.

And for $3.95 for a pair of J-pads....well, you're out $4 if they don't work.

so how do those slip into there?? do you put the wide part down and the thin part up and sit them in there vertically??

Fold them in half (adhesive side in) and hold them against your achillies, it'll be pretty obvious.

Take out your boot liner and put it on. Feel where your achillies is through the liner and stick the pad on there on the outside.

Put the liner back in your boot carefully so as not to rub off the pad and try it out.

It's kinda hard to describe, but pretty obvious when you're doing it

Outside of the liner, inside of the boot. They just kinda press the liner in at the one area to hold a little snugger.
