Bindings Broke?

Just tonight, I noticed that my bindings were loose from the board and slid about 1/4" in both directions. After getting to a tool bench, I tightened the screws in the disk and they were fine. After about 2 more runs, the same thing happened. Can anyone tell me what is wrong?

Sounds like maybe your inserts have stretched or the cold was wreaking havok on the screws and they compounded a little. When you're home and everything is warm and dry, you can pull off the screws, then throw a little blue loctite on them and screw them back in. You won't have any issues after that.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Check out your washers. The lock washers might be stripped and slipping. They're obviously pretty cheap to get new ones.

Haha my bindings broke today too, the toe strap managed to fall off as i was walking which is odd because I had never messed with any of the screws for it since it fit perfect how it came. I know it fell off as i was walking because just like 10 minutes before when I was done riding I remember unstrapping all 4 ratchets. Well I emailed flux and hopefully I can get a new one or I guess I'm out $350.

this works. any type of thread locking thingamajigger will work. I used teflon tape and my bindings have stayed tight for the past 3 months.

bolded is misleading, there is plenty of shit that you could put in there that would work and also destroy your equipment. Red locktite and construction adhesive are 2 that come to mind....

Technically red locktite and const. adhesive will work.....as long as you never plan on taking your bindings off or changing stance angles...and yes I mean NEVER!

Ya you are right, sorry if I was misleading. Removable bindings are always a good thing
