So I just got my union force bindings.. and the baseplate pad screw doesn't screw into the hole. The other binding fits just fine, but when I try to screw in the baseplate on my other binding, the screw just doesn't fit. I can fit the screw just fine without the baseplate, but when I try put it on.. it just won't screw in.
I don't think I stripped it. I think the baseplate is faulty. Has anyone else had this problem? I thought Union Bindings were supposed to be made with quality..
Does the hole have threads in it ? Maybe the hole was not tapped correctly. If you dont have access to a tap set I'm assuming that you would have to return the plate.
Hmm.. the bolt just slides into the hole on the faulty baseplate (EVA foam pad) but the screw doesn't slide into the hole on the good baseplate. Sigh.. do you think Union would send me a new EVA foam pad baseplate?
Best of luck getting that fixed before you goto Tahoe. I would bring it with maybe the a shop up at Tahoe could either fix it or swap it out for ya.
What hole are you talking about? They should have been put together when you bought them. Did you unscrew the screw from that same hole? If its the footbed hole you're talking about you may not have your footbed aligned properly, make sure it's flat when you screw it into the base plate. When you take off your footbed does the bolt screw into the hole then?
Yeah when I take off the footbed the screw fits fine in the baseplate hole. and yeah the binding came with the footbed screwed into the baseplate.. I've tried everything to get it screwed in and no luck. I think its just a faulty footbed. I have no problems with my left binding...
yeah, post up some pics. the bolt does kind of thread into the slot of the footbed before it threads into the baseplate. maybe you cross threaded it..? do the threads look chewed up on the screw? try swapping the screws b/w the two bindings and see if your still having the same problem.
