Probably the most stupid question ever.. But when I screw my bindings on my board, I'm like really afraid to screw them in too hard? And when I unscrew them sometimes it like cracks a little, not a loud crack but more like it's 'expanding' a little bit after it was unscrewed?
Just dont strip the screws, if you feel like your about to then your shit is tight enough. I also like to tighten them in a criss-cross pattern to distribute the pressure evenly across the binding and board.
