It's been out for years.

It also looks like it could be used to tighten each level at a separate tension level, and to make it easier to tighten the boot. Essentially, for sailors, each level is a separate jam cleat.

I've never used it, but someone on this forum liked it.

Is it being marketed as a medical device? Can't see why else the FDA would care.

I've never seen this product before. Looks neat, but lace bite is not a problem I've had.

However, is this post an ad? The poster didn't comment on it, just linked, and they have no other posts.

That is what I was wondering.

More like spam than an ad, as they got it for free.

Not sure where lace bite "bites" others, but that device wouldn't help me - when my tongues eventually break down sufficiently that I'm copping lace bite, it invariably starts across the highest row of holes, below where this device starts.

Sorry. I was reading this on mobile site before. This really does look like spam.

And aussieskater, I agree. I get lace bite at where my ankle bends.

I agree, It's spam. Not a horrible nasty spam for shoes or cigars, or  viagra or anything; it's a skating relevant ad,and in the right place in the boards. Since it's a topic worth discussing and not intrusive let's let it ride its course.

I would like to try this to keep the laces on my right boot from slipping, but I don't think it would work on a dance boot.
Yes I'm in with the 90's. I have a skating blog. http://icedoesntcare.blogspot.com/

It's spam.
I'm locking off the postings, but I'll ask FigureSpins if she wants to delete it. It is a skating product. It would have been okay to post it in the catalogs thread.

I would consider this a promotion or advertisement, albeit a weak one, moreso than spam.  The product itself was mentioned in a post some time ago by an active member.

Spam advertisements are posted willy-nilly on any open message board.  It's typically posted by spambots, which Jim and I handle every day without any of you being the wiser. 

While the biggest offenders are pharmaceuticals and porn, spambots are also used to market sneaker sales, golf products, knock-off purses and a myriad of other items.  Again, on any forum or open comment box it can locate.

This is clearly a product being marketed to figure skaters.  It was in the wrong forum (since moved) and I thank those who contributed their opinions about the usefulness of the product itself.  Never having had lace bite, I wouldn't know if this would help or not.

This is a product that my brother manufactures. The idea was presented to him by a former student while he was teaching at a local college. He owns the rights to sell and manufacture the product and I was just posting here to try and get him some business. If you have any questions about the product I would be more than happy to help.
