Default Questions about screws on highback

So I was trying to adjust the high back of my Ride DELTA MVMNT's, and I tried to unscrew the high back (heel back) from the chassis, and then the screws were sooo tight that the cross sign "+" of the screw went round in the middle so my screw driver slipped away everytime i tried to unscrew them, is there any way to fix this or if I call Ride will they be able to fix that for me? i just bought these brand new like 3 weeks ago...

thanks in advance

Hmmm... try some WD40 on it to loosen it up. Otherwise, warranty, imo

You stripped the screw head. Your going to need a replacement screw, so I would contact ride about that and see if they will do it. As far as getting the screws out goes. I don't have those bindings, but are the edges of the screw head exposed? If so, you could try to take a pair of pliers, the kind that lock, and lock them down on the edges, then try to turn the screw by gripping the outside. The only other way to take out a screw with a stripped screw head is to drill it out, but that's a little more involved and I wouldn't recommend you do it as you could damage the binding. If your not able to get it out yourself, I would take it to a shop and see if somebody can figure out a way to do it for you.

You can probably use a screw extractor... they have them at any hardware store (probably even walmart). Stuff like this makes my dremel very handy..

Good plan, most shops I've been to are more than happy to help me out with any hardware problems I had. I stripped a binding mounting screw head and the guy was able to get it out with a larger screwdriver than the one I had. Then he replaced it free of charge and told me I was good to go.

What rating of screw driver were you using? I believe Ride's screws are meant for a #2 or #3 Phillips. That is more to help you in future so you don't use too narrow of a driver head, which means the teeth won't catch the grooves fully and start to strip it. Not all size screwdriver heads are the same.

If you need to get it out on your own, you can trying using a square or star head screw driver, or use a dremel to create a new groove for a flathead, but you will ultimately need to replace that screw.

Hi all, thanks for all the reply I really appreciate that I took my bindings to the shop and they just gave me new ones with XL size instead of the L i had originally. Their service is top notch and allowed me to ride for half a day ha. but again, thanks to you guys too

make sure you're using the correct size screw driver. I was using the wrong one and thinking they tightened them too tight haha but looked at the manual and told me what number to use. works much better haha.
