I just fitted disc brakes, but the silver clips which hold the boot on dont seem big enough. I heard you can get ones with like screws on, a bigger clip. Anyone got some or know where i can get them?

The traditional DIY method of securing boots is to get some soft iron wire (about 1/16" [1.5mm] in diameter), loop this around the boot/shaft and twist the ends together. Trim the twisted ends to be about 5/16" [8mm] long and fold back (opposite the direction of wheel rotation).

Not ideal but I don't see large problems when used on steering rack gaiters. Still it all depends on the quality of the tie wrap. Some last forever but some break easily.
In all I would just spend the few pennies extra and get the metal straps.
