Avoid union MCs

They are absolutely the worst thing I have ever purchased. First day with them, a bolt snaps in half, and now, probably the 10th day Iv ridden them I cracked the heel cup I don't know how... It felt funky riding, I discovered it today waxing my board ...

Time to see if the union warranty is actually trust worthy...

Honestly don't know why I bought these... Learnt a lesson today...

Aw shit, I just bought these. No good snow fall to use em though. Hopefully the warranty goes well for ya. Are these the 2013's? I know they said the 2011-2012 had issues with the heelcup. In another thread.

Keep in mind that we only make about 400 pairs of these. I think we estimated that 20-25 of them were faulty, which all ended up in the US. So that 25 or so pair all happened within about a 5 minute span. That's how precise things need to be."

I'm sure you can email C3 and explain what happen with pictures, they'll be more than happy to send you a new pair, especially if it's a known and acknowledged faulty issue. They've got a really good customer service program.

Or even PM one of the Union guys that post on SBF, Nose or Union Inhouse

dkzach - Call 206.632.1601 and ask for Ron. He will get you taken care of.

We had a small issue with last year's Nano Heelcups. Looks like you got one of the bad pair.

In regards to the Aluminum hardware - Don't over tighten these. If you are worried about over tightening or the high maintenance nature of aluminum hardware, just use the steel hardware that came in your box.

Give Ron a call and ask him to cover shipping too.

Sorry for the inconvenience!!!
