/ Knot People
I managed to do a surgeons knot and I can pull it tighter and tighter and that is great, but if I pull the strands it still undos the knot like a regular shoelace knot.
My boots don't have lace locks.
How about these?
Thanks but I doubt they will have enough holding power for your bodyweight front pointing :)
Sorry I didn't explain, just hit send.
What I have seen done is that this holds the laces tight below the lace hooks and then a knot used to back it up. I think the laces went around the back of the boot and then back into the lace hooks and tied in the normal way
Milesy, whatever knot you chose, don't forget to put a stopper knot in the ends. You know it makes sense.
But in each end individually, or better to tie both ends together in a stopper?
Cordlocks -= the spherical ones. I haven't tied knots in my big boots' laces for 25 years. Both side of the lace through a pair of cord locks stacked on top of each other with an overhand on a bight/slip knot behind them to take up the spare and just in case. Couldn't be easier. They don't slip. It will cost you all of about £2 to find out if it works for you.
