Default has anyone tried this to gain stance width?



as u see , the screws are close to each other,,so i can gain stance width..
i'm 6'3 on a 162 ,and i feel i want more width so i did it.
is that bad for the bindings? or willl the screws get loose ? or will it effect my riding?

I wouldn't do that. Your screws are no longer evenly distributed around the center of the baseplate. The entire right side of that binding has nothing to anchor it to the board. The board-binding connection is where a lot of large mechianical shearing, torquing, and leverage forces occur.

You may be fine now; but after repeated stress, stretching, pulling, and twisting god only knows what could happen to that disc.

They're your legs though, do what you want.

they have a life time waranty,so they should be unbreakable. if they broke ill buy another pair of baseplates.

That's some logic you have there.

I can't see anyone needing that wide a stance. Have you been riding at all? I'd worry about the inserts ripping out of the board as soon as you nail something- a tree, ice, landing, rail, whatever.

For the record, I'm 6'2" riding a 162cm with about 21.5"-22" at around 10 degree duck.

it depends on ur height.short or normal guys wont find a problem,but i do.
so if ur 193 cms and looking for freestyle stability stance ,u'll want that wide of a stance.

I did something similar before on my Ride Delta Mvmnt. They have aluminum base plate. But I didn't put the screws next to each other like that though. It might not be a good idea since you have plastic plates. I would still use the standard screw pattern and just shift the bindings on each side. You can still squeeze about 1/2 inch on each binding.

I'm going to ride with my bindings mounted like that, but with only 2 screws, and then intentionally crash into everything.

I'll be fine.
My bindings will be fine.
My board will be fine.

Non sequitur X 3. This makes no sense on some sort of epic level.
