Default question about rome boss

i bought a pair of rome bosses...didnt come with the manual.

is the rubber thing beneath the binding suppose to be mounted along with the binding or removed?....it makes the binding really freaking thick, and difficult to screw into the holes since there's too much clearance between the screws and the binding holes in between now...

Yes, you are supposed to use that.

I remember having trouble screwing my 390 bosses down, but I can't remember what I did to make it easier.

Just gotta compress the binding a bit to get in that fist screw. The rest tend to go in pretty easy after that.

figured it out...screwed in a few screws without the washers (which allows the screws to go deeper), which allowed the binding to compress, then screwed the rest with the washers...then replaced the ones without the washers

That's what I had to do to install Rome 390's as well. The rubber pad is pretty darn thick, which helps with damping, I guess. Since I bought my board and bindings at the end of last season, I ended up storing the board with the 390's installed to compress the rubber pad some more. I'll probably be taking the board out soon to prepare for this coming season.
