Protective boot

The challenge

The client uses a rotovator and has an artificial foot. When using the rotovator, the shoe on the artificial foot becomes filled with soil.

A protective boot was made by cutting a standard Wellington boot above the foot area and then connecting the upper part of the boot using a peg and key hole arrangement. The upper part of the boot is fitted to the leg first, the foot is then fitted and then the upper part slid down over the foot part and secured with the peg on the foot part engaging a keyhole slot on the upper part.

The client can now use the rotovator without soiling his feet.
