Hello all,

I need to relief some pressure points, so looking for good tools.
Anyone has suggestions or sharing home made tools to make this possible?

Thanks!

For the upper collar and shaping the achilles area, I use this type of clamp:



The rubber ends hold fast to the boot and do not damage it. The trigger allows you to tighten the clamp as needed.

You could use a long nut with two bolts. Thread the bolts into both ends of the nut and tighten until the bolts fit inside the collar of the boot. Then loosen the bolts until enough pressure is had to fit the collar. Make sure to put some sort of padding on the bolt heads, so you don't damage the boot lining.

The type of nut looks like this:



Use a heat gun or an oven to get the heat required to make the carbon pliable.
