Default how to seal-repair steering rack rubber boots

The steering rack rubber boots on my '90 Corolla broke off at the end
toward outside. Dirts and moisture could get into the boots and
destroy the rack. So far there is no leak on my rack. I don't know how
to patch them up? Use plastic sheet to wrap around the borken ends?
Or??/ Any ideas??? Any info is welcomed and appreciated.

No easy way out for this one,...that'd last for long. To effect a temp
repair provided the boot is separated at the lastrib, is to remove the
remaining piece of boot and clip, then pull the boot over the orignal area
where the clip was and either re-clip it or use a zip-tie.

Thats what we call those long thin plastic strips with a feedthru locking
ratchet on one end for the other end to be pull thru.
I believe the cops use them as hand-cuffs occasinally.
