Interesting. But what happens when you are getting off the lift with 5 other people at the same time and need to use your back foot to petal? That would get annoying. You could unhook it before that... but.. Cool idea though, I have no need for it because my lift rides are only 2-3 minutes. But I could see it being useful for those 15 min lift rides out west.

There's this thing called a heel cup you can put it over your toe and achieve the same thing without having to invest in a foot thong.

I agree. Nice that you had an idea and followed through with doing something about it. Bad problem to solve though, there is no problem. It would be more frustrating dealing with it than worth the effort to fix nothing. Good luck using it on a full lift......

I applaud the effort you put on that design. I personally would not use it because for a traditional bindings, you have the heelcup to use as BA mentioned, and for the flow bindings or other rear-entry bindings you can place your foot in without locking it while on the chairlift. Can you unhook it before you get off the chair and not have it magnetically hook back up? If you try to unhook it ,would that make you bend over to reach it and possibly fall over prior to getting off the chair? some lifts do not have safety bars on them:dunno: just my thoughts, but I wish you luck with it.Thanks for sharing.

When exiting the lift you do so as you normally would. Place your foot in the same spot and the magnet draws the ring out of the hook. I personally don't use a stomp pad and use the binding as leverage to turn and such. Lifty does not get in the way and slides out easily due to the magnet.

Thanks!

sorry not a fan either...heel cup works for me, plus having to unhook the clip after every chairlift, just another thing i would have to do before i could ride.

Lifty is super easy to use and is hands free. There is no need to bend over when connecting the ring to the Langur Hook. You can unhook it before getting off of the lift and it will not cause any problem. Thanks for the good wishes.

Cheers!

Your video makes you look like some sketchy ass guys. Also you are trying to solve a problem that just doesn't exist. Before you claim it chews up your boots putting your edge on it, I have a set of K2 Thraxis's that have over 150 days on them this season alone and other than one seam blowing out from hiking they're fine plus if I was worried duct tape is only 5 bucks a roll.

?...what about when ur skating around or riding 1 footy and you go to kick some more...what prevents it from getting hooked up/tangled and thus not being able to kick? I use my heel cup...but good luck.
