Tried a homemade version and had no success.

Thatís hard to come by these days and itís pretty thin with sharp edges. I made mine out of a plastic milk jug and have seen them made from a playing card. Ace of spades works best.

I have these; they work as long as the seal isn't worn out or damaged;

You really should install some rubber gaiters. One gravel nick in the steel upper tubes or even dried bugs can literally scuff, scar or cut the seal lips.

I'd rather see full length accordion boots, but those at least cover the most used section while on asphalt.

I trimmed the excess lower pleats off of a long set of Polisport boots and used safety wire in the lowest pleat in the mounting groove.
