Looking at your pic, I think the overhang has you trying to move your boot forward in the binding, thereby pushing the straps out to their ends.

Absolutely correct.

Have you tried moving your boot back in the binding so it's against the highback and adjusting the heelpad back to it's rear-most position? Moving the boot back would give your straps more room to cinch down and eliminate that space between the boot and highback.

I have the heelpad pushed all the way to the front. Or at least I assume so judging from the pics. Moving the boot back will definitely give more straps to cinch down on but, I think it'll make the heel overhang problem more severe no?

Then with the boot mostly dialed in, I think the mounting plate has got to give you enough options to center everything on the board. The Flow YouTube video said that mounting the plate horizontally will give you more options edge to edge, which is where you'd mitigate an overhang problem.

I currently have the plates set this way:

ooo ooo
ooo ooo
ooo ooo
ooo

Just some thoughts...FWIW...YMMV

Good luck to ya'! Worst case, find a shop kid or someone else well-versed in setting up Flows to help, but I don't think the answer is to return things (if you could).
Bolded your points and underlined my answers. =P
