Question Slipping Toe Cap Bindings

I am new to snowboard and just bought the Burton Mission EST binding along with a board.

The binding for the toe is the cap version, the ones that goes over the top as oppose to top of the foot. For some reason it doesn't seem to conform to the toe of my Burton boot. There excess space between the cup and the toes. Most of the time it would slip up and sits on top of the foot like normal bindings.

I think I strapped them on correctly. The cup goes over the top of the boot/toe corner, at an angle to the foot bed.

Not sure if it is related, the binding clip instead of tightening the belt would slip. Other bindings I can either tightening it, or it won't go. But this binding the clip would slip on the grooves. I have to press down the clip with my finger and pull the lever with my thumb to get it tight. Not sure if it is a safty feature, or I have a defective binding.

Thanks for any help. Sorry if my power of description is lacking. Not sure about all the technical terms.

Is there a slot that you can move the toe straps further back towards the heel?

In most bindings, if you want to run a toe strap capped you have come from an angle that will pull the strap into the end of the boot.

If you want to run the strap over the top, you move the straps out further to the end of the binding.

Thanks for the help

I think you are right. I was looking at the binding and it seems that the Notched Strap is at a different angle than the padded/Lock Strap. The binding has 2 black dots where the lock strap is anchored and it is at the forward dot. Going to take off the binding and see if I can move it back.

Thanks for the help Very appreciated.

The Lock/Clip strap does have 2 positions and I shifted the belt to the one closer to the rear of the binding. Now it is at a sharper angle to the toe. Seems more secure when I strapped the boots in. Hopefully it will stay put during actual use.

Thanks again for the help.

This problem happens to my Cartels all the time. I'll strap it snug and after a few hard turns the toe cap is sitting loosely above the boot, not doing anything. I don't know if the ladder is slipping or whatever, but it happens quite a bit. The cap conforms perfectly to the toe box of the boot too, so it boggles my mind how it can slip off so easily.

I hope Extremo's solution can save my problem too...

not to insult your intelligence or anything, but make sure your heel is all the way back in the heel cup. if it's not, when you make a heelside turn it'll move back, and you probably won't feel it, and your toe strap will come loose.

Ayy-Yyup!! What He said! Especially if you have a lot of forward lean in the bindings. My boots get "sucked" back into the heel cup of my Cartel's about 1/2 to 1 inch as I'm ratcheting down the ankle strap.

It happens more often when I step in from a standing position as opposed to sitting. Sitting, with the board on its back edge, heel goes all in easier.

my thoughts exactly. i think it happens to me because my bindings are just barely big enough for my boots, it's a tight fit.

I have a pair of K2 bindings that are tight & I never sit to do my bindings up.

I put my toes in first, just a bit back from where they will end up, then step down. When I step down with my heel, it squeaks as it slides down into the heel cup.
Once it is in there, it doesn't move @ all & it is always as far back as it can go.

It happens to me only when the toe cap was placed too high on the tip of my boots and or when I try to do some jumps. Be sure the toe cap sits lower than you would think what it should do. Normal thinking is the toe cap should push downward but think instead it should be pushing down and back towards the heel of the boot.
