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.

if the base plates where aluminum i might try something like that, but certainly not with plastic plates

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.

Snow or sun, not rain

I can ride the slopes with snow, the streets with sun, but rain just plain sucks.

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.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

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