Here are 3 easy steps to put on your CastCoverZ! BootGuardz! cover, which is designed to protect your orthopedic walking boot, boot liner, and toes from the rain & snow (should you be able to take boot off and on.) For those of you who must wear your boot 24/7, you can always release the drawstring cord and easily slide your cover on and off.

STEP 1:  Slide BootGuardz! On

STEP 3:  Cover That Boot
Once your orthotic walking boot is securely in place, slide BootGuardz! down over your boot. Pull the bottom portion down so that BootGuardz! covers your boot to the very bottom, while leaving the tread exposed. Then tie the string at the top to keep your cover in place.
