Default Toe strap torn

Hey I am headed up to Killington for the weekend and ran into a small issue the other night while riding at my local hill. Part of the toe strap was torn (picture below). I have already contacted Burton and a replacement is on it's way, but it won't be here in time. Is this something I should worry about and have replaced before I ride, or will it last the weekend?

I would go to Darkside or Basin and see if they can fix that for you.

Prob wont cost much at all. Ive had problems with bindings and they have fixed and replaced parts for free or really cheap

I wouldent risk it because if it goes out then you done for the day.

Also update the killington thread in the regional forums with the conditions there

Ya I was debating taking it to Darkside or not, but I guess I will go tonight when I get into town. Don't worry I usually update it every time I go

I feel duct tape would cost more than picking up one of the straps on my way to the mountain.

Had the same thing happen to me at Breck two years ago. Just go to your local shop and they should have replacement straps in stock. Takes all of 5 minutes to replace and the strap will cost you under $10.

Worst case - use an ladder strap and drill a hole in it. That's how the guys at Breck replaced mine as they didn't have that piece in stock. Held up just fine until I could get a new strap.

If you have access to a small enough drill bit you could put one hole above the tear and one below and run a twist tie through it a couple times. Won't be pretty but should hold until you get the new strap.

Thanks for the input everyone. I ran over to Darkside and got the strap for $5. Better to be safe than sorry.
