Its a pity I love them cause they really are fragile pieces of shit.
You might want to try lubing them. Burton uses very weak springs in the ratchets. I'm using silicone spray, works really well (it is a good lube for plastic/metal, gives a bit of water resistance and works well in the cold). If you buy some, make sure it's plastic and rubber safe (mine is intended for automotive use).

Silicone spray can prevent ice buildup as well, if you use it every few days.
