They are set at their largest. You can make them a little smaller by sliding the highback forward if you untighten the screws (you can also pull the front out a bit if necessary). Make sure your boot is centered on the binding a bit more. I'm not an expert on how the binding is supposed to fit, but seems like it would be ok then though...

Edit: Hmmm, on the other pic it appears they are set to the smallest, did you change them after the first picture or are the two sides set differently?

I called Flow directly and they sent my parts that same day. You may want to try this avenue. Have you gone to a local shop to look at another pair of NX2's to see if everything is identical. Maybe like you said they threw the wrong ladders on yours but at least you can physically go and compare your bindings and another pair.
That is what I would do.

Yes, you are on the small extreme of the Large. They will be rideable but you will do better with the medium size.

I was at a local sporting goods store, it seems that all flows will still tighten down even when the lock is pressed down. It does make it a little harder. K2 cinch addressed this problem with a different buckle that has notches inside to increase the friction. I don't like the friction, I took the buckle off a K2 Formula binding and put it on my wifes rear cinch binding. It frequently tighten too much while skating in the lift line, but she just losen it on the lift up before putting her foot inside. It makes entry a two step process but step two is something you can ratchet as you start going and don't need to sit on your ass. Some people complain about it because it makes releasing the buckle much harder. Flow made their ladder strap wider. You won't be able to change the buckle on the strap with a Cinch or burton buckle without changing the ladder strap.

Here is a suggestion for you
Change the buckle on the top strap with a different brand or model, one that takes the older more narrow ladder straps.

Now shave the edges of the current ladder strap from the end to just where you need it ratcheted down that way it can't be over tightened. If you need it tighter, tighten the other size. It a way it defeats the purpose of having the ratchet to go super tight.

If this flow strap fits on my cinch bindings, I will get one of these ladder straps and do what I just described so my strap doesn't accidentally over tighten. I'll have a K2 cinch with a Ride Contraband g-string strap and a Flow ladder strap.

In my experience, K2 and Burton have different screw hole sizes on the buckle, I've used a drill to carefully enlarge one whole, I've haven't taken a Flow ratchet off to compare it with other brands.

weird thing i noticed and i'm wondering if anyone else has noticed it:

ever so often i step into my bindings (NX2-GT) and notice that the toe strap looks loose, meaning the webbing is not on my boot at all. i usually crank it down and pay no attention to it. the ratchet is still locked, but i'd say every other run i have to tighten it a few cranks. i'm not sure if this is just due to the fact that the toe strap is moving oh-so-slightly every time i jam my foot in there...i'll pay attention this weekend but was wondering if anyone has the same issue.

How? I though we couldn't move the highbacks and make them parallel.

Otherwise, I spend about 15 days on my GTs, and I'm super pleased.
