mounting flow NXT-FSE

Hi guys,

got a pair of 2011 Flow NXT-FSE bindings and I got only screws with them and no washers. It doesn't seem right to mount them without washers with the mounting disc being made from aluminum. There is also a picture of the screws with washers in the instruction sheet. Washers from my old bindings don't fit in the grooves around the holes on the disc. Any thoughts?
Thanks

I have the 2010 models and they definitely came with washers. However, when I was demoing the 2011 models, the rep gave me a set of screws with built in washers. Sorry if I'm offending you, but the simplest answer is often the most accurate.

If that is not the case, just give Flow a call and they'll happily send you the washers or screws with washers built in. In fact, you should do that anyway so you have a spare set!

Thanks for the reply.
Tomorrow I'll call the shop where I bought them and ask about the proper screws.

I just got some replacement disc in from Flow the other day...no washers, just screws. I think someone at the factory is sleeping on the job. From what I can tell, there are supposed to be washers (screws are too long otherwise).

Out of curiosity, what do your screws look like guys?

Is the screw head wider than normal? Posting a pic would be even better. Then I can tell you for sure if they are the kinds that need washers or not.

Nope, head is not wider than normal on screws I got. I am sure they are just like normal screws used for mounting bindings, they're 12mm long. I can take a photo if you like.

What also confuses me is this video:

Special Edition Bindings: by Flow Snowboarding

Somewhere in the middle of the video is shown how to mount the bindings on the board and there were also no washers used.

Ya, I guess that's the type of screws I should've gotten with my FSE's. Thanks for posting the pic.
I tightened the bindings on the board few times while setting them up the other day and I can already see marks on the disk made by a screw head cutting into aluminum so those are definitly ment to be used with washers.

I have some washer ones with a set of 5150 bindings. Problem is the washer area is much larger and won't fit my flows
