I had one of those rack locks freeze up on me last year. I ended up taking one of my bindings off (had tool in pocket) and slipping the board out of the rack. No-one said shit, although I did get some looks.
I'd have been happier if someone had come up to me and said something, or at least taken my picture or something.
In retrospect, "Let's get the goat drunk"
should have been my cue to leave the party.
