Default Rome 390 ankle strap question

Hello all!

Thank you for taking the time to read this. I just purchased some rome 390's, and I have a question relating to the right side of the ankle strap. Does it take an ungodly amount of pressure to put the fastener in the locked position? I'm talking about the side that has the rubber strap to stop the actual main strap from getting in your way when you're not strapped in. I'm a noob with snowboarding, so I want to make sure I'm not about to break something when I try to really put some force into this.

Thanks all!

Yes... I have last year's Rome 390 BOSS and it takes a LOT of force to hook down that rubber strap thingie that pulls the strap out to the side and out of the way.

I'm talking about the actual binding strap...the right side of it that the OTHER rubber piece attaches to. Are we talking about the same thing?

It came loose so that the right length of the ankle strap could be adjusted, and I'm assuming to lock it in place, you just flip the fastener (that has the hook for the rubber piece) over towards the middle of the strap. Just seems like it takes a TON of force.

And thank you for the quick response!

Lol your second post didn't really clarify it. Are we looking at the left or right binding and are we looking down on the bindings to or heal?

If you're looking at the R-side of the left foot ankle strap and mean the buckle to retain the rubber tension belt..then yes it requires a good amount of force to lock

This correct? Take's a lot of force to get into the latched position?

Ya it takes a lot of force to lock 'em... Don't worry, you won't break it hehe.

Upside to it taking a lot of force to lock is it also would take the same force to come loose while riding.

This thread saved me a hell of a lot of time. Heavy swearing and 2 broken thumbs later and I finally locked them in. Haha thanks for your help.
