Default Adjusting the highback on burton p1.1

I presume that I'll end up sounding like a total retard, but I probably am just that.

I disassembled a pair of p1.1 so i could transport the snowboard. When lowered, the highback sticks out a lot on the side of the board. Now when i try to set them back they are always a bit crooked. My forums had three pair of holes and it was just a matter of choosing the right pair.

I dont know i just unscrewed them.

You do understand what im talking about? Maybe im concerned over nothing. The forum factions i have have matching holes. The highback snaps perfectly in place. The burton highback touches the protruding part of the base on just one side, and i just cant figure out what im supposed to do, or if its supposed to be like that.

You adjust them however feels comfortable to you. A lot of people will adjust them so that they are parallel to the backside edge. Some adjust them so they are inline with the binding. Do whatever feels comfortable to you.

I like them parallel with the board, but it's all personal preference. Try it both ways (or anywhere in betweent), and see what you like the best.
