Default Lower Shifter Boot

There must be a reason for this zip tie looking contraption on new boot (it's not zip tie) and doesn't appears to offer any adjusting ability... what's it's for (see pic)?

It's there to pull the lip over the metal edge for you. It isn't necessary and removes completely regardless if you use it or not.

I just installed a new rubber boot. The plastic line works great. I used a tiny bit of silicone grease around the lip as well. Slipped right on.
