I have Burton custom's from 2010 and the front binding has been coming loose after only a few hours on the slopes. Then I have to tighten them again, and then a few hours later they start to wiggle again.

The only explanation I can think of is that the screw holes on my board have been stripped. Is this a problem anyone has seen before? Or is it the binding the true culprit?

The board is pretty much brand new. Atomic send me the board for free in 2010 after I snapped my old one in half, but this is only my second season riding it.

Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
put some blue locktite on it and it should not come loose
