Exclamation binding screws

My snowboard is old and the metal anchors for the screws don't line up with my new bindings, so i used 4 #10 wood screws on each binding, I then put jb weld inside the holes. I am just wondering if this is strong enough to not rip out when I snowboard. Thanks

O and its a k2 board and k2 bindings

Wait... you did what????? Did you JB weld the screw inside the inserts? I have to assume this is a troll post.

You've got to be kidding me, lol. I use JB weld for a lot of stuff, but that is just not going to work unless you like the idea of breaking your neck or something else.

You need to use rivets! Wood screws won't work!

K I drilled new holes for the screws because the old anchors don't line up. I drilled new holes for the binding disks and than jb welded the wood screws inside the new holes.

Screw heads don't look wide enough. I'd be concerned with them not holding up and failing on you.

If I understand you right you have just drilled a few holes into the deck and filled them with jb weld to screw the binding bolts into right? they will rip out. jb weld is amazing but the stress on inserts is alot more than you might think.

good news is your board is old anyway so when they rip out halfway down your first run you can go buy a new one. hopefully you may be able to salvage your bolts but I wouldnt count on it if you screwed them on before the jb weld set.

Eh, the old voile splitboard pucks were screwed on and worked alright. IMO, until you take a really bad spill, they will work for what your doing.
