Question Lacing pattern to help heel hold?

I found this while strolling the interwebz to help with some work boot issue I was having. This blog had a video on lacing. I have tried this pattern on my work boots and it is actually very comfortable

Got me thinking, could this help someone with boot issues or heel lift?? take a peek and post up if you've tried it or if it would possibly work.
Around 2:30 is the actually lacing stuff



Here's one for boot heel lock.



Again not sure this will/would work for snowboarding boots but worth a try and obviously this is for standard boot laces

I do a double knot when I use regular lace boots. just tie a knot around the ankle then keep going up.

I tried this today and it worked great. I had issues with my
DC Gizmo boots inner laces getting loose after few runs causing heel lift. The inner laces still gets loose but having a tighter laces on the outer boot helped a ton with the heel lift.

Great find and thanks for the info.
