rome targa ankle strap...cant close?? help

so i just purchased the 2010/11 rome targas and i noticed that i cannot for the life of me close the trigger lever on both ankle straps, is this part of the design? because i can slide them out in there current positions i havnt ridden them yet but if i leave them open my strap would fall out wouldnt it?



the top green block with a hole in it is the trigger lever which i cannot close! in this picture its closed. anybody have targas and have this problem? i tried brute forcing it close at my desired length and it wont close

insert the ladder into the ankle strap clip as u normally would
hold the clip perpendicular to the ladder, so the top edge of the clip is facing u
the clip should have a notch in it
insert & align the rubber quick strap into the notch
close the clip

This apparently is somewhat of an issue with this year's Targas. They increased the tension on that lever for this year. I did notice it was tougher to close than last years, but not THAT hard. It must be really tough on some though, because I contacted Rome about a different issue I have with a new heel strap, and the guy thought this was what I was talking about. He told me to send them the strap, and they'd get it closed, and that once it's closed once it will be easier from that point forward.

Isnt' there a nub or something that the ladder holes needs to fit into before the latch can close? Check to ensure that's in place when you try and close it.

You are just weak.
Smash it shut its supposed to be like that. Better that its hard as hell to close.
Basically a stupid design, should have put screws there. I mean I only adjust that once in my lifetime anyways.

My let toestrap one kept opening on the hill yesterday. I'm gonna ziplock tie it doen maybe. Really bad design. Else, the bindings fully rocked.
