Emergency binding repair..

The bindings I have are a bit older.. say 2006/2007 Burton Cartel. I'm heading out on a trip to NC tomorrow, and to Breckenridge in a couple weeks. I was making a few adjustments to my bindings, and the hiback buckle broke!! WORST timing. I called Burton and they said they probably don't have any of these to send out.. Anybody have an idea where I could find a replacement? Anybody have one they want to send my way? How about repair ideas? When buckled, they crossbar pops out, so the hiback is loose when leaning forward. Picture attached.

A few weeks? I'm pretty sure you have time to fix this. Why don't you ditch the locking flad and just slap a regular highback piece on there or ask Burton to send you new highbacks.

Well, I'm going tomorrow, but local trip to small mountain, so I suppose I could just rent something, which I hate to do.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by losing the locking part? I figured it without the ability to lock them down, they would be very loose when going toe side.. These are 2006 Cartels if it helps.

burton was the only company to have a locking mechanism on their highbacks that i know of and even they don't do it anymore. it's pretty much useless to lock them down.

Ok, these are the only bindings I've used. Do highbacks normally just hinge freely then? Nothing holds them in place?

yup, if you are on your toes you don't use your high back anyway and when on your heels the force you push against it keeps it in place.

most high backs just have the part that you can adjust your forward lean with.

Yah, swap the high backs, ideally different colour. Bonus points for dif colour on each foot.

Frankenbindings rule.

Well, I feel like an idiot, but at least I'm relieved.. These are the only bindings I've used in a couple years and I guess never paid attention to others.

Thanks guys!
