Default Bindings too small or just right?

So I'm using Nitro Team TLS snowboard boots in size 7 with Burton 2006 Cartel bindings in size Small. I also have a new pair of Nike Zoom Force 1's I'm going to try this weekend.

I have a lot of trouble strapping in to my bindings. Usually it takes me a while just to get the ratchet to catch & click. The only way it works is if I slide it in and start cranking on the ratchet hoping it catches, which usually takes about 4-5 tries and really slows me down. When it does click, I can only click in 2-3 times MAX. Usually I just click it twice.

Are my bindings too small? I've heard its better to size down on bindings than size up. I remember in my old Burton Moto size7 with Freestyle bindings in Medium, I had to crank the crap out of it to get it tight.

PS- I lost the lever that locks the highback to the heel support, does that matter?
