Flow M9 highbacks slipping
 
Hey everyone, I have Flow M9's (which I'm looking to sell/trade) and the high back aren't staying in place. The two screws that connect the highback to the rest of the binding keep slipping and changing the horizontal size of the bindings (I hope this makes sense). Any ideas on how to properly tighten these screws?

Thanks!

is that the screw that allows the highback to move freely right? i have the same issue on my flow five on one screw. the plastic piece that has teeth on them broke in half,and now it would slip around. you can only tigthen the screw so much. i'm emailing flow for a replacement for it. hopefully someone could come up with an alternative:dunno:

Yeah, it's that area but my teeth look fine, I just can't get that screw tight enough.

see if you could changed the washer to a thinner one. hope it helps. though they are not supposed to be to tight so it can move the highback loosely:dunno:

I bought a pair from dogfunk that had the same issue right out of the box. I put the back in the box and shipped them back...exchanged for som Flux RK30 and the problem was solved :)

Did you ever figure this out? I have the same problem... I think the solution is to move the female piece (the rectangular metal piece it screws into), out of the slot. Then rotate it and let it clamp down on the binding itself. Does that sound right?

Same problem over here. After 20 days the binding failed. I emailed them to see what happen.

Are you trying to rotate your highbacks parallel to board edge? If so, dont. Flow's arent great at that.

This is one of the downsides of the H and M frames. The new Fuse frame for next year is much simpler to adjust.

I had this issue myself with my M9SE's. It will go back into place right, just try and fidgit with the way the highback is sitting in the frame and the way the arms are lining up with the bolt.

However, if you arent even getting the lock washers teeth to engage the track on the frame, you may have cross threaded the bolt. If so email Flow or find a dealer and they'll get it figured out.

If nothing works, take it to where you bought them and make them do it.
