How to keep driver x liner tite?

can't seem to keep the liner lacing tight and the velcro tabs (not straps) don't do it. any ideas or tricks to keep my liner tight to avoid dreaded heel lift?

Mine are perfect. Sounds like you have the wrong size boot.

You know you have to push the little hoop in on the liner lace to lock it, right?

No, those big hard plastic flex inserts... They stiffen the boot 3X...

Nope, those didn't come with mine. I have the 09s I believe.

the plastic yellow loop the tightens the liner laces doesn't stay tight. in the morning I can get it tight and it'll loosen significantly throughout the day.

When do you notice this problem occurring most? When you are on a long traverse?
