Burton's Living Hinge: Can someone help?

Can someone explain to me how burtonís LIVING HINGE bindings work? I canít seem to find anything on it.
Another thing is that +/- twisting thing on the back: When I twist it, I see virtually no difference. The forward lean still looks the same. Some people say that by twisting it +2, they get a difference.

Am I missing something?

The Living Hinge is just what they call the forward lean adjuster on some of their bindings.

The Hinge technology is built into a couple EST bindings...which is totally different from the Living Hinge. Is that what you are thinking of? It confused me at first.

I think they are just saying that they eliminated weight by not having the plastic stay with a screw of some sort and use the twisty thing instead. And you can adjust the forward lean and highback rotation independently...like pretty much any other good binding out there.
