Default How to tell front binding from rear?

Yeah, I know stupid question. But last time I did this was over 20 years ago and I don't think there was a difference back then LOL! (If there was, I didn't care)

And yes, I searched (not new to forums)

So, I've got Union Force bindings. I'm 90% sure I've got them correct, but thought I'd double check. It really looks like a footprint kind of, and I put them to match my feet, if that makes sense. Is the how you tell?

Or, to put very simply, the soft straps are attached to the inside of the stance with the bindings on the board.

Does this sound right? Any help appreciated

That's pretty much how I could tell (big toe), but when I stuck my boots in the opposite ones they still fit.

Where would the L and R be on the binding? I looked all over both of them and couldn't find it, as I figured that would be the easy way.

As I mentioned, I'm about 90% sure I got it correct, but thinking about trying it out tonight and thought I'd double check

ladder strap should be on the outside. buckle straps on the inside.
funny thing this dude who asked me on tips on first time snowboarding also put his bindings backwards.

Back lower side of the highback is the most common i think

Yup, that's how they are, thanks!

I just looked again, can't find L or R anywhere on those things.

I think I got it though, everything seems to match, and I basically matched up the "footprint" they made to what I would see in the sand in bare feet, make sense?
