Have you tried calling Salomon customer service?

It's a crazy idea, but so crazy it just might work.

NO I didn't and I know I should but being Sat. probably closed.
Gonna also call our local shops to see if they sell replacement parts.

My post was to see how others handled this. IE: calling manufacturer, replacing boot, cutting and tying manually etc...

Off Salomon's web site

Salomon has more than 100,000 parts in stock that can be ordered through an Authorized Salomon Dealer. Dealer locator: http://direct.where2getit.com/cwc/ap...client=salomon

Got a Joanne's fabric or craft/hobby/fabric store around?



Search in the 'Notions' section of the sewing area.

Don't waste your time calling Salomon they will just send you to an authorized Salomon dealer.

My cords and locks came in today.

Sweet $8.50 for 2 new cords and 2 locks, and 10 minutes to install them. Very happy, and my buddy says my boy can keep the boots. They are to small for him
