It's happened twice on my front foot, and once on the rear foot, so it's at least not just a single crappy ratchet.

The second time it happened, I was on the lift, a good 40+ feet over the ground, when the guy next to me looks over and says, "Uhh dude, you know your binding's undone?" I look down, and sure enough, the only thing keeping my board attached to my feet is the toe strap on my left foot. Scary.

So for those with this binding- have you noticed that the release mechanism is extremely touchy? My old P1.1s (which I'm going back to) certainly need a lot more effort to get them to release. The Rome ones just seem to need a teeny tap and they're off. It makes me wonder if I'm missing a locking or fastening mechanism on the things.
Have last year's Rome 390 BOSS... ~30 days of riding and haven't notice the ankle strap coming loose (I do have problems getting the toe-strap to sit well on the toe of my boot (it actually can come off my boot sometimes). I ought to fiddle with the adjustments more to try and get it to work.
