Thanks kirkrider,

yes the forward lean is already at zero, and i've increased the tension on the cable by using the allen key adjuster.
i've included a picture of where the cable slips out of the channel.

Yes, ive tried that trick to get in whilst kneeling, it works well (when the cable is working )

I've tried contacting K2 and they say that this is the first they've heard of this problem.
They want me to go through the dealer which is hard cause I bought the binding online in the US.
I'm in Calgary.

(FYI - I tried to get the binding through my local shops, but no K2 dealer in Calgary had stock and I was told that they couldn't get stock from K2 either)
