Rome bindings, screws to short?

Just got my new 390 boss's today, went to strap them on my NS evo and the screws are to short to even take at all on the binding inserts. Anybody else experienced this?

Seen it before. You need longer screws.

You can go to the hardware store to get longer screws. I've also seen people not use the washer on one of the screws which would then make it easier for the other screws to make contact. Then you can remove that screw and put the washer back on it. OR you can use some muscle and press down on the bindings harder.

Have you tried using the Targa screws or try mounting the 390's to the SL.

If they're way off, just swing by Home Depot and pick up some longer screws. I personally haven't had any issues with Rome's screws, but my bindings are a couple seasons old.

Seriously get new screws for it. If you have to force the bolts in then you are creating to much pressure on the bolts. Will either end up pulling the insert out or strip the insert or bolts. If this happened while riding then you have a good chance to snap your baseplate even if one bolt comes loose. Seen all of the above solutions tried and about 70 percent of them resulted in a baseplate break because one bolt came loose and caused stress on the baseplate.Just need to bump your screws up 2mm and you will be fine. Call rome and ask them I am sure they will send you longer screws or atleast tell you which one they use. Either 14mm or 16mm is what you have now.

I rang my rome dealer and that is the tip rome gave them for getting them in because if you you use longer screw when it actually gets a grip it goes in further and will tear through the base.

Whats your experience with this? is it rome bidnings inparticular?
