Total bummer end of day too - it was an absolute pain to even get my foot our of the boot since I couldn't loosen the dang thing.

Anyway, is this the end? Is this something common? These were great boots, but a season and a half seems pretty light for $300+
Something is jammed, it's totally fixable.

PalmerFreak I had a pair of SL-8's and currently have a pair of SL-10's with the speed lace system and have never had an issue with either of them so i would consider your situation atypical.

I did find some references for replacing a broken speed lace - this one has step-by-step instructions:

oneballjay: How to lace the Burton Speed lace boots in 10 min.

From what I've been able to gather, if you order the new lace from Burton they will send you a tool that helps in the repair but I guess you'd need to contact rider services to double check.

Good luck man.
