Why do you need the ThinLine Gatorbootz?
This one-piece polymer Thinline Gatorbootz bell boot offers unmatched durability and protection for your horse. the bell boot has a latch designed to be opened by humans but never by equines. Standard velcro closures are generally the failing point of horse bell boots. By eliminating Velcro we have greatly extended the lifespan and greatly reduced the hassles of bell boots.
How does the ThinLine Gatorbootz latching system work?
The Thinline Gatorbootz bell boots’ unique latching system makes it easy to release the boot with just two fingers. Simply hold the top of the boot in your left hand, buckle facing you, pull down and out with your right hand, disengaging the zip tongue at a 45-degree angle.
Once you are used to the system you will be able to release the bell boot on the horse with just two fingers.
Tips and tricks: if you find the boot a challenge to open the first time, spray a little WD-40 inside the latch. You will not need to repeat this after the first operation. Also, hose off your boot if the latch becomes encumbered with mud to lubricate the latch.
The left and right boots are symmetrical, which means you don’t have to worry about left and right boots. To ensure your latch remains closed, slide the latch to the last setting.
The ThinLine Gatorbootz emergency release
Use the emergency release trick if your boots latch ever appears to be stuck, simply place a hoof pick under the buckle, raise it up a bit, and then the strap will slide out. Note, not intended for daily use, only if you need to quickly release the latch
What makes the ThinLine Gatorbootz so safe?
We designed the latch to break at the rivets behind the buckle. If your horse manages to get the boot hung on something.
