what's the proper technique to screw in your bindings

so ive been watching a lot of people do it differently. i see some people start at 50% on one screw and go until it stops. moving to the next screw in clockwise/counterclock direction. Once they get back to the one they started at, they give it 90% and tigten it until it stops moving in the same direction. and then just make sure its all tight with a quick squeeze.

then ive seen people who do this but in a cross pattern. bottom left, top right, bottom right, top left. Then repeating the tightening at 90% and then the quick check.

is there a direction you guys usually do or a habit of how much power u put into it. i generally do the clockwise fashion 3 times. Once lightly till stops, second time tighten withe more power until stops. third quick squeeze and im done.

thanks guys

I thread in all 4 screws and then tighten in a criss-cross pattern. The first go round I have it at about 80% then hand tighten to 100%.

I also do the criss cross pattern. Once the first two are in, the other two most likely will fit. I tighten the screws just enough to remain stable the first time around then tighten them to 100%.

Definitely screw in two cross screws about 50%, and then the others two the same, and then its definitely the criss cross action. Works good,

Although I found that on my new Union Force Sl's, the front foot keep gettin loose, anyone ever use plumbers tape in stead of loctite? Always had better luck with that stuff.
