Attach bindings to board

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?

how often are you taking them off?

you dont need to wrench them down. just get em down good. use a hand tool not a drill.

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.

The cracking you're hearing is a likely combination of the loctite, pressure relase and seperating of oxidized surfaces. Nothing to worry about.
