Default Help Adjusting Bindings

Bindings: Rossignol Justice
Boots: Salomon Dawn

Just bought a new setup for my girlfriend and I'm trying to get the bindings and boots adjusted correctly. I'm hoping there's some secret that I haven't discovered, but I can't get the boot to sit flat on the base plate and have the highback fit correctly. The adjustment piece for the highback is all the way up so, still not fitting correctly. As you can see below, when the boot is flat on the base plate, there's about a 1/2" gap at the bottom of the highback. Vice Versa, when I fit the boot correctly to the highback, there's a gap at the heel on the baseplate. Anybody have any ideas?

The gap isn't a big deal.

You might want to extend the toe ramp and center the boot a little bit more on the binding, but otherwise, you're fine.

Mount bindings on some board. Have her put on the boots and then see if it fits or not.

Also, if you crank down the ankle strap what happens.

Looks like you need to have your girlfriend put the boots on and actually step on the binding. The highback is pushing the boot forward hence the heel lifting up.

heres what you can do:
if you look in the window of the heel cup theree should be some size numbers (red square)
there should be a screw on the inside that youll need to loosen (not remove) and you can slide that heel out to fit the boot.

Other options would be to make sure the straps are ratcheting to the middle of the ladder strap you can change this by the screws on the ankle and toe straps (red circles)

heh, it wasn't even strapped in in those pictures, they were just laying over it. I adjusted everything, but it didn't effect the gap. I actually attached the binding to my board and cinched the boot down and it actually pulled it back into place. Thanks for all the help, guys

Those bindings seem to have loads of built in forward lean and the boot doesn't. Not really a problem unless it doesn't work for her style of riding. As you found out the strap will pull the boot in to place.
