    Lace cutting boots

    Heres my simple solution to avoid boots that snip laces.

    I hate eyelets and even replacing those they seem to wear and start snipping laces in no time.

    A $20 trip to Bunnings and half an hours work and my boots I was ready to throw have got at least another 6 months.

    Its easy as, open one side of the figure 8 chain, remove from adjacent link, squeeze up so hole is just wide enough for rivet shaft.

    Thread a small washer onto rivet then thread the rivet from the inside out (this doesnt end up looking pretty but avoids the nobbly bit of the pulled rivet against your foot).

    Slide on the chain link followed by another washer, give the gun a couple of squeezes and your done.

    I find it evens out the pressure of the laces as it allows them to flow freely through the chain links.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
