Did you guys find the back latch very hard to open as well.. and did the high back stay down or was it a similar situation?
Nope I don't have Mr Burn's hands. The latch it tight for sure but nothing hard to pop when you need to. If the high back isn't popping up easy for you to latch it, then you aren't getting your foot far enough into the actual binding. Take them into a shop and have someone set them up with your boots.
I have a word limit on my cynicism
