Tommy Boy comes to mind;

Tommy: Let's think about this for a sec, Ted, why would somebody put a guarantee on a box? Hmmm, very interesting.
Ted Nelson, Customer:
Go on, I'm listening.
Tommy: Here's the way I see it, Ted. Guy puts a fancy guarantee on a box 'cause he wants you to fell all warm and toasty inside.
Ted Nelson, Customer: Yeah, makes a man feel good.
Tommy: 'Course it does. Why shouldn't it? Ya figure you put that little box under your pillow at night, the Guarantee Fairy might come by and leave a quarter, am I right, Ted?
Ted Nelson, Customer: What's your point?
Tommy: The point is, how do you know the fairy isn't a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy; well, we're not buying it. He sneaks into your house once, that's all it takes. The next thing you know, there's money missing off the dresser, and your daughter's knocked up. I seen it a hundred times.
Ted Nelson, Customer:
But why do they put a guarantee on the box?
Tommy: Because they know all they sold ya was a guaranteed piece of shit. That's all it is, isn't it? Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for now, for your customer's sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality product from me.

Screw being normal

you're so funny guys..bravoo
i wasn't stubborn on the warranty thing ,but to get a lifetime warranty that has to mean they're pretty confident that its unbreakable if used properly.and if they weren't sure the base plate is baddass they would have given you a one year warranty like other companies.

i know i am not using it properly, that's why i didn't deny the possibility of them breaking.
and i said if they break , i'll buy another ones (i don't have a union dealer in my country).
to claim warranty..not that i'd do it

Base plates are one of the cheapest part to manufacture for bindings. Thats one of the reasons why they would offer lifetime warranty. You should be concerned about what would happen to you when it breaks... We are strapped to bindings for many reasons...

No disrespect towards you, but a lifetime warranty doesn't guarantee anything other than having the baseplate replaced. When that breaks going off a kicker, at a high speed, or at a bad time during a rail/box, the baseplate will be the least of your worries.

It'll be replaced if it breaks being used properly. This isn't properly.

Don't confuse lifetime warranty with unlimited warranty.

You might want to consider what would happen if just one breaks in a crash, being locked into one binding will twist the hell out of your ankle/knee. Personally I wouldn't risk it, my knees and ankles aren't under warranty

Lol do they offer a lifetime warranty on your bones? Because when that breaks, your ankle or knee or leg will break too...
