Default Boots/Bindings just not compatible?

Hey guys
I am getting a new jib board soon. The bindings I decided to go with was the 2012 Union Contact. While I was setting up my bindings I noticed a weird issue with the toe cap. It straps down just fine and is on there plenty tight but the ratchet is maxing out on the tongue which I know is bad. I fiddled with them for a good hour but I had to either choose between the cap fitting my boot right and maxing out or not fitting at all and not maxing out. The boots are 2011 DC park boots. HELP PLEASE?!?!





Here is the boots on my Burton Cartels to compare.

The ratchet does not max out on the Cartel

is there a heel cup adjustment? could slide that in.
also did you see if the straps have different settings in the base plate? try to slide the strap through the plate out the bottom.and move it back.

all else fails... Drill another hole for adjustment on the toe strap and move it down.

I messed with the strap adjustments under the bindings. However I never adjsuted the heel loop. I will try that now and reply in a minutes.

Um? Sorry if I missed it, but have you unscrewed and adjusted the toe strap on the side that is shown in the first (top) picture? If you unscrew and move in the static side (on the side that doesn't unclip) you'll free up some of the ladder on the other side.

The problem is fixed now. But to answer the question yes I did.
