2010 Union Force - loose straps?

Love these bindings, but doesn't it seem like the bigger strap (and to some degree the top strap) become loose as you ride? It always seems like I have to constantly re-screw the bolts back in place on the straps.

Anyone else having the same problem?

Remove those screws. Put a single drop of blue loctite on the threads of each screw. Put it back together. Problem solved.

I have never had a problem and this is my second set of Force's but you can always take Triple8Sol's advice to fix your problem

I had that problem too, eventually losing my right toe strap altogether. Loctite ftw

skip work and ride!

Happens to me all the time. I have gotten in the habit of checking my bindings before each run.
