snowman55 I think I may have found something that might work. It's for long distance runners for their running shoes but I think it may work if I replace the inner laces with this one.

I'm going to order one and see if it will do the trick.

Thanks everyone.

Psi-Man A slider on my old Burton boot liner broke, so I just took it off and lace them manually using a ladder lace. With the ladder lacing, you pull on the laces and they do not loosen up. The only real downside is that it can be a PITA to loosen at the end of the day.

Yea, somebody was questioning if people had issues with the 32 clip.

How about this: does the internal lacing from your old 32 boots fit the DC boots? i havent tried those dc boots, but the internal laces are ussualy pretty similar (in diameter at least) unless they are boa... So try and see if you can use the 32 clips (or the whole 32 internal laces) on your DC boots... could work

snowklinger Yea pretty sure that slider thing on 32s has been teh same for like 8 years across all the models, it works.

F1EA I've never had the liner loosen on my 32's. I have and use 2012/13 Exus (their cheapest model) and 2013/14 TM-2, both have the same slider thing, and have never had an issue on either.

Another option would be buying Remind liners... i think cost is around $130. But you could probably use them on your next pair of boots. Intuition sells liners as well, but they are more expensive.

CassMT 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

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.

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).
