After being extremely frustrated with the toe straps, one thing I found helpful is to just get them replaced. Unfortunately with my luck, I got shitty Burton ones that don't tighten all the way.. -.-
I did the same. Replaced my Atlas straps with Get-a-grip's. They don't tighten well and when you try they strip. I went back to the Atlas.
What didn't you like about the Force straps? I found this years to be their best rendition yet. It's got more of a curve to it than my Atlas strap does. I found it caps pretty snug.
