Update: New Quick Entry Bindings System
 
I made a new video about my invention and figured I would share it on here. It's more formal, articulates the product better, and I used my new aluminum prototype in it. Let me know what you guys think!

For those of you who missed the first thread, don't worry about finding it, but I guess you can if you really desire. The first video was very sloppily put together because I wasn't over the initial excitement of finally getting the "patent pending" status. Haha

Didn't get ugly last time... and that was with a crappy video.

I think it has potential. :thumbsup: think about putting a small ratchet or something on the other side of the strap so you fix your issue with on the fly adjustments. Like the opposite side where it connects to the other plastic strap.

Still pretty cool tho. Good job.

Nothing wrong with trying to build a better mouse trap. Looks really good actually. I'd pimp it if it doesn't add much weight. :thumbsup:

I like the idea of consistency too. Set it at a certain tension and forget it. Sometimes when I crank my straps down, I find out later it wasn't as tight as I thought it was or had it too tight.

I could, but that would add weight, and wouldn't that defeat the purpose? Haha

Thanks though. Glad you think it's cool!

Oh yea, some people on the last thread were showing me this. It's pretty sweet and uses the same "set it and forget it" concept, but utilizes a totally different design. I'll be getting the full patent on my design within a year, so that it will (hopefully) interfere with anything they come up with for the ankle strap and they won't be able to use it without paying me. Haha

Surprisingly, it's actually really light! The heaviest part is the stainless steel loop, which will most likely be made in fiberglass reinforced nylon or some reinforced plastic composite in the final product.

Yeah, I was paying close attention to my bindings and found that (at least for me) the reason I need to occasionally pop it looser for the lift is because I made the binding too tight in the first place. There's a sweet spot right in between, and this invention allows you to just set it at that sweet spot and not worry about it after that.

Some guys who ride bigger mountains may not want it, and that's cool, but for small resorts, street riding, hike sessions, or backyard sessions, the consistency and quicker entry is sweet! Glad you like it!

Nah, this guy is going about things the right way and got a great response last time - and engaged, discussed and took on board what people were saying. It's good shit :thumbsup:
