MACHINE CONSOLE:

WARNING:
  • DO NOT RAISE TEMPERATURE ABOVE 120 C. FOR MOLDING LINERS.
  • DO NOT PUT WET LINERS ON HEAT TUBE MACHINE.
  • MACHINES SHOULD NOT BE USED AS BOOT DRYERS.
For repair or replacement contact your supplier. See warranty information provided at time of purchase.

HOW TO HEAT MOLD LINERS

IMPORTANT:

Before heat molding, both liners should be tried on in boots (with any orthotics or footbeds you intend to use) to ensure liners fit boots and feet properly.

HEATING TIME CHART (MINUTES)

For a more aggressive mold: Heat for maximum suggested time.

Be mindful of volume and size. A low volume (thinner) liner requires less heating time, as will a size 4 compared to a size 15.

ADDITIONAL FITTING TIPS

  • Pay attention to fit description when customer first tries liners in boots. If liners felt tight when first tried on, buckle/lace extra tight when heat molding to compress foam and create more room for foot. If liners felt loose when first tried on, buckle/lace a bit more loosely to avoid compressing (thinning out) foam. As long as liner feels secure, with no sloppiness or movement, and no major pressure points, go ahead and heat mold.
  • Liners can be reheated and reformed if they do not take proper shape during first forming. If you need to adjust fit / hot spots in a specific area (ex. ankle or toe box) consider spot-heating with heat gun to push or punch them out without changing overall fit. Be sure to keep heat gun moving constantly over section to avoid overheating or burning fabric or foam.
  • Customers may need to ski a couple of times to let liners settle and feet adjust to the fit. If customer identifies hotspots while skiing, consider adjusting as suggested above.
