Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Adding Zipfit material (cork stuff)

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I have a plastic tube of the cork stuff (seems solid, at utility room termperatures). How do I get it into the boots? (Recall something involving plastic pipes or tubes, but...??? ) Does it need warming first, and how (tube is open ended, so can't dunk in hot water; microwave? on top of radiator?)
How much to add at a time? Just want to get a teeny tad more hold at a couple of places.
How then to get it to where I want it? (At home, only have body/foot heat if I wear them and/or radiators and general room heat to warm shells/boots - or can wait until I next go skiing and bed it in that way; if they ever allow us to go ever again!)
Thanks.

@Grizzler, By the time you are able to go skiing again the stuff already in the liners will have settled at the bottom, I would wait until you have used them again.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@rjs, do I store them upside down, then? Seriously, never knew that. Skied them first time for 10 months yesterday (stored in shells sitting upright or lying sideways), weren't at all a bad fit, though took a few runs to get my desired forward lean fully in (but still better than pre Zippy days by a long chalk Very Happy )

@Grizzler, I wouldn't store them upside down, just factor in that they may feel tighter after not using them for a while.

@Grizzler, where did you get your boots/liners from? They may even top them up for you??


@rjs, pretty sure the cork in zipfit doesn't "settle to the bottom", certainly hasn't in the many years I've had mine and always stored the right way up!!

@kitenski, Rivi Alp. Bit of a long trek, especially in current circumstances. He gave me the extra stuff if I needed it, sounded easy to do at the time but, duh, I've forgotten by the time that I get around to it.

There are instructions on the zipfit website, I think you can use a piece of dowel rather then buying the applicator? Video on this page:
