Hex Shaft boot

Has anyone ever tried to patch the boot on the hex shaft instead of replacing it? I checked mine today and it was in pretty bad shape. It was still clamped good on both ends but there was two or three places where it was separated. I put duct tape over the splits and then took electrical tape and started at one end and wrapped it good all the way to the other end. It made a pretty neat looking fix but I don't know whether it will hold up or not. Just wondering if anyone else has tried this.

The later boots,are the "black rubbery" ones,same part number,much easier to get if you buy them in person, and ask for them,as a lot of dealers,have the old "white plastic" ones in stock,and would like to sell them first. the new ones seem to last much longer.

Found on E-bay ,good price, and shipping, shipping will probably be slow at this price, I haven't dealt with this vendor, so no pro or con. P.S. this is for 1 boot.
