My road shoes have had Boa dials for a while now, and other than the occasional slide along the tarmac, they've worked just fine. Then, the other day DK and Aimz were talking about how theirs stop being able to hold/secure the cable and need replacing, and in a case of the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon, so did mine.

Obviously one of the glorious things about ye olde Boa dial is that they have a lifetime replacement warranty. Rock onto their website, fill in some details, and they'll ship you some new ones (nb. it seems to be limited to black and white options). That process takes a little while, regular post and oceans and whatnot, so if you're like me, you've got a set of shoes that dont stay snug to your foot, and wait until you can swap out the offending part.

I'd guess though, that it's the top dial of your shoe that's gotten dodgy. So, if you've got a double dial shoe, swap the top and middle dials. The little plastic latch thingy needs to be pulled away from the Boa, not pressed towards it.
