Union Force Heel Cup Problem

Ive been trying to pull it out after unbolting the 2 side screws but it wont budge. is there a trick to this also how far do they come out corresponding to the numbers written on the heel cup.

the largest setting is "2" for extending the heelcup. u may have to undo 4 screws on each binding to adjust it the full way, i cant remember for sure since its been awhile since ive adjusted mine.

I think it's funny that people complain that the heel cup slips on union but then you find people cant even budge theirs. I had to adjust mine with a mallet.

same here. i think it's a quality issue on some units sold from year 4. mine does not budge either. luckily i don't really need to adjust the cup for my boot size, but if i did, i'd be irrate.

Just look! If it looks centered then great if it doesn't then move it! Man not that hard!

There are 4 (2 on each side of the binding) screws you need to loosen. The heel strap bolts also attach the heelcup to the base. But 2 is the largest it goes.
