Or not. I'll give you some specifics. The springs go and the stop springing back into place requiring you to manually push down on them when you tighten them. After you tighten them they get stuck in the up position and for some reason you have to force them down flat. Then because of the crappy strap design when you begin to get them tight to your boot the ratchet strips the last 2 or 3 teeth on the ladder because the strap starts to twist it in an unanatomical position when it conforms to your boot.

So to anyone considering buying technines take the advice of someone who has actual experience with them. There is a reason they once offered a lifetime warranty. But they couldn't afford to replace all those ratchets (the only thing on a technine binding that failed)
