stand up spring vs. boot

My precision 15 has a stand up spring to support the mansail sheet pulley.
Sometimes when tacking the spring hangs up the pulley and i need to rotate it by hand. thinking of going to a vinyl boot. Would this be a better solution than the spring.
Thanks, Ed

Save some money and cut a piece of rubber hose the right length and diameter to act as a 'stand up'...
