NEED HELP with switching gear shift knobs

So i have a 5th gen prelude and im trying to switch out the stock shift knob to a shorter one that i bought on ebay. The description of the knob when i bought it says that it fits the honda prelude and it does, but im not sure on how to make it stick to the bottom leather part of the gear shift...here are pics of stock knob and the knob i'd like to switch to...
pleaseeee let me know if anyone has dealt with the same issue or has even bought the same shift knob and installe in their car already. thankssssssss

what i used to do was take the boot up and when you have it inside out put a zip tie on the inside of the boot right where the shift lever tapers down to hold the boot up . works great

Re: NEED HELP with switching gear shift knobs

Basically, zip tie the underside of the boot onto the shift knob or shaft. I know there is a few photos on how to do it somewhere.

This might help:
