Being a 230lb beer delivery guy I can assure you he wasn't leaving them loose. Talking with a shop guy while in Denver he had seen the same thing with the Ride mini disks. He suggested moving the screws to the normal square pattern. You loose some adjustment but it holds better.
thanks man...i will try this as well.

No I'm not a retard and from a generation of snowboarders that had shit break or not work out the box but we wanted to shred so we made it work. If the screws don't work it doesn't take a genius to go, fuck lets try a different configuration or just grab some new screws. It's screws they cost what maybe a buck or if you're like me you have boxes of parts full of old ones laying around. Don't be such a dipshit pussy use that block of gray matter located three feet above your ass.

It did not fail. He just used it incorrectly - it is like complaining that a TV does not work after not plugging it in.

Yeah...I had a similar problem with my first pair of bindings (Kempers). The front binding would wiggle and shift. Tried other screws, tightened the shit out of them, but nothing worked. The screw holes had worn away enough through the hard plastic that a bigger screw was too big for the inserts.

I dealt with it. Because I wanted to ride.

im not bitchin cus i can't find a fix for it...im bitchin cus i got a brand new product and dont expect to have to fix it.

its like buying a new car and the next day the transmission gives...do u go "o well no biggie im a mechanic ill just fix it cus i wanna drive" no u complain
It only needed to be 'fixed' because you initially used the product incorrectly. Had you just tightened the screws properly before riding then there would have been no problem.

Metal disc and baseplate bindings require a different approach than their plastic/fiberglass counterparts. You tighten metal on plastic, you are done.

With these metal bindings, you have zero play in the parts, everything is metal on metal with the screws and the inserts. Then you are subjecting these metal parts to extreme temperature changes.

There are ways to solve this problem, finger it out.

Also metal underfoot is just far less comfy than plastic, I don't care what anybody says.
