Just out of curiosity if the screws are all good (tight, not touching channel) why would you guys still not recommend them?
Because:
the Channel won't always be clean. if anything builds up on that surface and/or the board bends: YOU ARE AT RISK.
If you ever move your stance back for powder: YOU ARE AT RISK.

We did a very intense study on every possible tolerance combination possible and having been in front of that screen and making bindings for 8 years, it is in your and your boards best interest to just listen to the advice we've given you.
