A quick, inexpensive and simple way to keep long gaiters on winter boots.
For winter activities involving deep snow, gaiters are a necessity.
They keep the snow out of your boots, help keep your socks and feet dry and ultimately keep you warmer overall.
The problem I’ve found with gaiters is that the hook tends to slide around the boot lace, bunch up the laces or just not stay on that well.
A solution I stumbled upon several years ago is a simple one: a key chain ring. We all have them in our junk drawer. We are never sure how we acquired said key chains, but they are there. Spooky!
So take one of these ubiquitous key chain rings and attach it to your winter shoe of choice:

Attach to the gaiter:
Zip up and cinch down your gaiters.
The gaiters won’t bunch up the laces, slip off and will stay in place rather nicely.
