Binding screws coming loose

I check my binding screws fairly regularly, but today was only a three hour day for me and my screws were loose by the end! I'm pretty sure, another run or two and my back binding may have popped right off my board. I obviously re-tightened them when I learned they were loose, but I don't understand how they could have came loose so quickly...bad screws? Not tight enough to being with? I don't know what's going on, so I thought I'd throw it out to you guys and see if any of you have had similar issues or solutions to this problem.

I had this issue after repositioning my bindings back on the board. The next couple of times I went out they started to loosen up. It's not the screws, man up and give it a nice torque brah.

2 things:

-metal or plastic disc? If metal, this is pretty normal as you have all these intolerant components heating and cooling, wiggling is guaranteed. If plastic discs, you should be able to crank enuf to overcome the loosening.

-put a drop of clear nail polish in the inserts before you tighten; credit: AngrySnowboarder, the BurtonAvenger.

I have had both kinds of bindings, problems, and solutions.

Thanks guys. They are plastic so I'll make sure to crank them down pretty good and try the nail polish trick.

Are these bindings by any chance reflex Cartel's? (...or any kind of Burton reflex binding?)
I had this happen to me with my Med. reflex's when I mounted them on my wide board! (...actually had a screw rolling around loose under the foot pad when I opened it!!!) I know the disk insert for them is supposed to "flex" and I thought maybe with the bindings being too small really for a wide board that the extra effort and leverage used to edge that wide board caused them to flex right out of the inserts.

I might be wrong about why that happened, but I also know that I am totally OCD about keeping my binding screws tight, so I know "I" didn't fuck up and forget to tighten them.
