Sticky Rachet

Hello Folks,

I have a year old pair of Burton Custom bindings. The toe rachet on the right hand foot is starting to stick. Do I need to repair them, or would a spray or 2 of WD40 work?

Thanks,
Jay

Not understanding why you don't just go ahead and find out on your own.

compare it to the other binding closely.
Is the bracket bent?
Do the teeth look messed up or bent?
Is the pin smashed or bent causing it to hang up?
How does the strap look?

Post some pics or vid of it not working. You didn't give much info for people to help you with, pics really help

Play with it too much, the ratchet is bound to get a little sticky!
