How to keep liner harness tight around the lower ankle? (DC boots)

Any good tricks to keeping the internal boot harness tight around the lower ankles (where the leg bone connects to the foot).
I have DC boots and after few runs, the boot always gets loose around the ankles and feel less 'responsive' where I have to tighten the internal liner laces again.

The little clip that holds the the internal laces doesn't stay tight. Both of my DC boots (Gizmo, Mutiny) have this issue.

Thanks.

I actually did and they told me take pic and send it to them. I did and I've been waiting for the new ones to come.

I figured since both of the DC boots have the issue, it's just a crappy design and replacing it with the new clips they will send will not help.

Thanks.

DC boots suck balls if you ride more than 10-15 days a year. That slider is a piece of crap.

Are you looking to buy new boots or fix your current liner problem?

Damn, I wish I talked to you before buying my second DC boot. I ride ~25 days a year. I think you are right about the slider.

I love everything else about the boots though (fit/feel).

I used to have a 32 boot (Lashed FT). The design is similar but the 32 boots didn't come lose as quickly. I only needed to tighten it once during the day which wasn't a problem since I just did it after my lunch break.

DC boots start to get loose after about 3 runs and I need to tighten it again after 5.

i'd try a mountaineering shop or outdoor store, they'll probably have a slider that is for something else

maybe DC changed their source or design and are sending you something better, could be

meantimes i'd wrap the thing in duct tape so the button can't move
