ok since this didn't delete i'll tell yuh what i did. i made a sandwhich out of a bunch of stickers. i did that till it was about 1 mm thick. i cut a little piece of this shim(if you will) to about 3/8" x 3/8". i stuck it into the rachet between the catch lever and the release lever. worked bitchin. got all excited and posted it here and then after a few more test / carpet surfs the shim(crappy ol' sticker) got spat out. haven't thought of a way to anchor a shim in there more solidly but just under 1mm is all it takes. makes the release engage sooner during the throw of the release lever. just over 1mm and you start interfearing with the tightening action. maybe i'll get back to it.

the reason i quoted this below was becuase when i pulled up this thread the other night my re typing of it was gone and it just said deleted again. probably something i did here. when i rolled my cursor over the title on the index page the writing would appear there...weird. so thats why this appears twice...

Can you just glue the shims in place?

OR you could just press down and lift up simultaneously. No stickers, no shims.

a very similar thought crosed my mind,lol. have various types on hand but would probably need to drill my new bindings to make them work. it's not that bad really. it's just that i really crank down tight on all straps. really tight. all the way tight. i like my bindings dont get me wrong. i just think that there is room for improvement accross the board in the binding market.
