I have a pair of Union Forces that seem to come loose very easily. The screws that came with the bindings were too short to contact the threads in my board, so the company sent me longer screws (that are actually made for Capita bindings).
These longer screws work perfectly and my binding is very tight. However, within an hour or so, the screws loosen up to the point where I'm getting a good 5-degrees of rotation on the bindings. The bindings start to feel so insecure (even some lifting off the board) I have to stop and tighten the screws. So throughout one day on the slopes, I have to tighten bindings 3-4 times. There's going to be a day where I hop on a lift and the board separates from the binding...I'd like to fix the problem before that happens =)
So what can I do to remedy this? The screws are screwed in very tight so it doesn't seem like the screws are too long.
try getting some long enough screws and then put some thread lock on em and that will be that, they will never some loose again, unless of course you loosen them. It is called Locktite, get the blue stuff, not the red locktite, the red is permanent, and you don't want that. the thread lock you can get a any hardware store, lowes, home depot, ace etc...
It can eat the topsheet and or baseplate, and in my opinion there is no reason to use loctite for snowboards I've owned around 9 or 10 diff boards, never had to use it once. Get a long handled screw driver, and crank those screws down. If you're really having troubles, and you decide to use it, just use a tiny tiny amount, if any seeps out you used too much.
loctite causes heat and it may cause delamination...that is prob what u read up on.
Go to the ski shop and ask for new screws with the factory loctite on it. if ur bindings r still loosening, then check if u havent cross threaded the threads in the board...if thats the case then ur ffffff......dddd
Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
