Default Now bindings short screws

Hey NOW shreds, is anyone else having trouble with these binding screws being too short? They just grab my Signal OG, but on my new Capita NAS they don't catch no matter how hard I push. Can you use any old binding screws?

Yes, I had the same issues with my now drives. I would just use a different screw with the same nuts. All screws are the same size anyways i believe.

Yeah you really have to push the first time to get them in, that foam on the bottom will compress after time. I felt like I was doing it wrong when I got them last year but after some good elbow grease it went in fine on my Never summers, arbor, echelon and marhar.

Yeah this Capita NAS is a little recessed with their inserts. They grabbed on the Signal but I will have to use different screws for the NAS. No big deal, I don't think a super short screw is integral to their kingpin design.

Yup as stated before either get longer (NOT MUCH LONGER or you will go past the insert) or push down really hard. It's the foam used as dampening under the binding that's causing the trouble. Screws come anywhere from 16 mm to 20 and even slightly longer. Too long of screws WILL cause you to start pushing in to the base so be careful but thread spacing is universal. (unless Burton tries to change that too to make you need special Burton screws with their bindings )

Yeah I had the same issue with my Darker series. Like mentioned above something a little longer will probably do the trick. I'm a little sketched thinking about mine now that you mention it, there is probably like 2 maybe 3 threads engaged I hypothesize.

It's weird I didn't have the issue at all last year with my IPO's, but it's been a bitch on my Drives this year. They still work, just takes some patience

My drive screws would not catch either my proto or sick stick. I used some other screws a couple centimeters longer and cranked it down. I the screw down in the inserts.
