Binding ratchet help

Hi, I got lower end burton bindings last year and I was pleasantly surprised by them. No cheap plastic parts like my last one, and they were very comfortable. The only problem with them, was that whenever I buckled in the ratchet would slip, because it would lift up. Now this can be solved with a little wrestling with them, but I was wondering if this was a common problem, and if it can be fixed by actually fixing the ratchet, or if it's possible to get a replacement set from snowboard shops?

Thanks

i had to replace the male and female connectors (dunno how else to explain and/or what the right term would be). Most local ski shops will have a very generic replacement part that will at least do the job and keep a good hold. Don't expect it to be perfectly matched to your old ones though.

Take your board to your Local Burton Dealer.

They have replacement parts on hand and can inspect your ratchets and ladders and help diagnose the problem.
