Frequently Asked Questions
Do you supply clips to retain the boots?
We supply all boots with the relevant cable tie wraps. From experience the boots usually hold nicely onto the joints without metal clips and often retain better without them. Unless the replacement boot is exactly the same size as the original, fitting or refitting a metal clip can pinch the boot and leave a gap for grease to escape and water to ingress. Plus some metal double row metal clips are very difficult to fit.
The UK MOT obviously has rigid guidelines, although a failure or pass is often down to the individual examiner’s interpretation. Examiners have been known to have said only damage matters and if the compression holds the boot in place, it isn’t essential to have clips. If you are in doubt, please speak to your MOT testing station first.
