Ski buckle helper
I visualized a tool that looked like an old fashioned bottle opener ^. But they were not the right size to fit over the buckle and not long enough.
I went a few liquor stores and finally found this:
I added a cord, (I always have some around from Campmor) and used a pencil and flat file to smooth rough edges.
Now I can get that bottom ankle buckle TIGHT! It makes a big difference in my boot fit!
