Availability: In stock
Brand: ACUITY Instruments
The finishing touch that looks good with any shift knob
Gone are the days of sagging shift boots, broken plastic shift boot collars, and shift boot collars that don't match the diameter or style of your shift knob. ACUITY designed this Shift Boot Collar Upgrade to allow use of virtually any M10x1.5 shift knob in your Honda without sacrificing fit and finish between the shift boot and shift knob. This kit includes 2 binding nuts, one meant for flat-bottomed knobs, and the other meant for boss-bottomed knobs (like modern Civic Type R and Honda Factory Performance designs). The boot collar is reversible and can be flipped to match your knob's base diameter, whether it be a traditional narrow-bottomed knob or the newer style wide-bottomed knobs. An integral retaining feature lets you easily pop the boot collar on and off many times without problems, so you no longer have to worry about breaking the OEM plastic boot ring when removing your shift knob. The supplied binding nuts are turned and milled from stainless steel and have flats for a 12mm open-ended wrench. The boot collar is made from 6061 billet aluminum and receives a tasteful anodized/sandblasted finish before laser etching.

Note about shift boots and Cable Ties:
On some shift boots, the supplied zip ties may not reach around the whole boot. Avoid using a larger cable tie as it will not fit into the groove on the boot collar as well. Instead, use 2 of the supplied cable ties attached together to reach around the whole shift boot. The supplied cable ties are quite narrow and are selected to fit into the boot collar. If you need more cable ties, similar cable ties can be purchased (normally in black though) from most hardware stores near you.

Purchased this to replace the OEM piece that the previous owner broke. It took some time getting the collar to push all the way through the boot, but overall the collar is well made and looks great once everything was put back together.
Nice easy way to change your shift knob and have it look factory. No loose boot or mickey mouse boot connector.
I ordered the boot shift collar that way I could use my factory shift boot. I purchased the short throw shifter a couple months ago and set it to a height of 1. When doing this the stock boot collar wouldn’t allow you to use the factory boot at that setting. I emailed Russ and he confirmed you couldn’t run the stock boot shift collar with the short throw shifter at the 1 height. So he did a test fit for me with their aftermarket boot shift collar and was able to confirm I could use the factory boot with their boot shift collar at the 1 height. Besides the fantastic customer service, the product is top notch and adds a clean look to the overall shifter. I would recommend doing business with Acuity based on their customer service alone. In my opinion, Acuity’s customer service is the best I have ever encountered. Not to mention they have top of the line products! If you do business with Acuity, you will not be sorry.
I installed this along with an OEM TypeR knob in my 2018 Accord Sport 2.0T. I did this while also installing the full suite of Acuity shifting accessories on my OEM shifter (minus the Esco knob as I prefer a round knob).
This really looks and feels like a factory installation with this knob, and I am very happy with it.
The only issue I had is that I had to buy a pack of longer zip ties to secure the boot to the collar. This results in an unsightly lump in the top of the shift boot from the clamp of the zip tie. I think I may take it back apart and try using some elastic or maybe some high test monofilament. Otherwise, this is another exceptional product from Acuity.
On my 9th gen Si, I noticed the finish on the OEM shift boot collar was flaking off and always hated how chintzy the OEM was, so I decided it was time to upgrade. This kit looks so much better than OEM, and even adds functionality of being able to easily pull the boot away if you want to change shift knobs. The only thing I would recommend if you purchase this is get some low profile zip ties. This will keep the boot bulging in 2 areas. Other than that, I definitely recommend this kit.

If you choose to do this, please remember that Acuity Instruments LLC cannot insure packages that are stolen.
Free Shipping Options:
Occasionally we offer shipping specials where orders over a certain amount are free. If we are offering this, you will see the free shipping option in your cart at checkout. If no options is visible at checkout, then either there is currently no free shipping offer or you are not in a zone that qualifies for free shipping. Most states in the continental USA qualify when a shipping special is being ordered. There is no choice of carrier for free shipping, but typically we will ship your order will likely ship using either USPS or UPS. If you'd like a faster delivery, you can opt out of the Free Shipping option in favor of a faster, paid, shipping option.

Please note that a full refund is typically not provided by the carrier. ACUITY does not offer full reimbursement of shipping costs, but ACUITY will pass on 100% of any reimbursement for shipping costs from the carrier to the customer.
