If you are considering changing an Easyboot Glove gaiter, a few insider tips will turn this into an easy task.  EasyCare uses Loctite on all the screws, but, with the right tools, that replacement should be smooth sailing.

Here is what you will need:

  • Philips Head Screwdriver
  • Vice Grips
  • New Gaiter and Hardware

Josh shows us the removal and application process in the video below.  Take note on how he first removes the side screws and then the back.  The same is true for applying a new gaiter, attaching the sides first, and then the back.

With the removal, it may be easier to rotate the gaiter after removing the side screws so that you can get a better grip on the washer without the gaiter fabric in the way, as shown below. The red line indicates the angle at which the vice grips should be gripped.

I hope this Fix it Friday segment helps your gaiter changing experience go smoothly.  And, as always, if you have any questions, our Customer Service Team is here to help.
