Default 2013 union binding >HELP<

So I've watched those union binding clinic videos on youtube and my toe straps still get stuck (or take a huge effort to remove). I've adjusted them to the point where only about 4 teeth are showing, any suggestions would be appreciated.

thanks.


oh yeah forgot to mention they're contacts

I have this same issue with my 2013 SL's it really pisses me off. The toe ratchets suck! Not to mention how easy the paint as scratching right off of the highbacks...

The straps are sick. If you can't figure out how to release them, that's not the bindings fault.

Hint: Press down, lift up. Simultaneously.

Now I know it's tough for you to comprehend this with your blind fanboyism but all these people saying the same thing means it's the product not them!

Yeah, the ratchet is sticky. Not a news flash. But it's not hard to figure out. It'd be like some asshole bitching that Burton's ratchets skip. It happens, but it doesn't take a genius to figure out how to press down simultaneously while ratcheting. You can either bitch about it, or figure out you're doing something wrong.

Or they could take the feedback and finally build something that works properly. Hard concept I know.

Best ratcheting mechanism on the market. Never skip, never pre-release. For the extra ounce of brain cells it takes to figure out how to get out of them, it's worth it.
