Try some grip tape. Put some on the board and on the binding. It shouldn't slide with those two surfaces pressed together.

If it turns out the base plates are warped, (doubtful, but it could happen) call union and request new baseplates they have a lifetime warranty. Hope the new hardware and discs solve your problem. It's what I would do before I shelled out a few hundred bucks for bindings.

I think that may be the problem.warped baseplates. I have new baseplates from union on the way as well as a conversion discs from burton. if none of this works I am finished with union because I will ditch union bindings before i ditch burton boards.

Current Setup
Burton Super Hero 2013 151cm, Union Force Bindings 2013, Burton Hail Boots.

If it doesn't work at least you tried everything possible to fix it. I hope everything works out and you can avoid shelling out the scratch for new bindings. On a high not, if you end up getting new bindings and go with burton EST you will get the full benefit if the EST system.

I FIXED IT. This time around I did things differently.

You have to use the washers provided by union NOT the black ones providied by burton that you get with the 13mm screws.

Plus you have to use a #3 screw driver (duh). You may think a #2 will work but it wont get the screws tight enough. USe a number 3.

Use some threadlock of some sort.

Take it easy with the loctite you don't want to put too much, if you ever take out the screw make sure there isn't any loctite at the bottom of the holes when reinstalling. Too much loctite collected at the bottoms can actually cause problems. Shops around here will actually give you free screw with loctite on it.

NICE!! Glad to hear it worked out for ya and it didn't cost you some hard earned bills. Always like hearing about someone saving a setup and some cash at the same time.
