Default Can my bindings be fixed?

Hey guys. I made a thread asking what bindings i should buy because my old ones broke, but I was thinking that maybe they could be repaired for less? I've been having problems with the ratchet on the right toe cap for a while now, and today it completely died. I'm not sure what it is but it will not stay attached to the strap. I think something may have broken off or bent. But would it be cheaper and easier to fix my burton missions or to just buy a pair of Union DLX bindings? I was planning on getting new bindings next season anyways though. Thanks.

You could probably contact burton and get an entire toe strap assembly from them. I'd try that before replacing them

Try and get a free replacement cap-strap from Burton first, if you can't you can just buy new ones.

Unless you really don't like the bindings you have, I'd try and fix them first, it will save some serious $

Cheaper and easier to fix what you have.

Then, ride them until you find someone to buy them from you. When you hold that money in your hand, go buy what you want.

I'm thinking about buying a replacement pair now, and then taking the bindings in to a shop that is on burtons website that says they sell binding parts to fix them. I'll probably just use them as a back up pair because I'm looking for something with more flex for the park. I guess I'll email burton too and see if they'll just send me a toe strap. Thanks for the help guys.

SO much cheaper to fix. I've broken a few sets of burton toe strap ratchets in the past. You can buy a set of cap straps for like $20 or $30 bucks if I remember correctly. Even if you decide to buy a whole new setup, fix em up anyway so you have a backup!
