Default Union charger bindings - swapping diode parts ?

Anyone see any harm in putting diode straps on union chargers? Both ankle and toe?

If the parts jive, of course you can

I have some old Hammer bindings(made by Rossi) I just swapped out the straps on it with my Burton C02's

Now my Frankenbinding is complete, let's just say...

Frankenbinder.
The only issue I see is mounting the toe straps as burtons snap in and Im not sure how the unions work. Have a play and see what you come up with

The Burton Gettagrips worked with my Union Atlas just fine. The Burton Ratchet works with the Union Ladders.

Toe straps will work. Not sure about the Ankle straps. The t-nut and screw on the Union are pretty specific to their straps. You might have some play with the Burton strap but washers might help. It couldn't hurt to try.

I was thinking just pads and caps. No straps. Keep union straps and ratchets just change the ankle pad and toe cap.

Wasn't sure if that would mess up any certain tech of the binding , like fuck up toe response or ankle response.

You wouldn't think it would.......

It wont fuck anything up, its just physically getting the parts to interchange. Pull them both apart and see what works.

Can you swap the entire strap/ratchet/ladder assembly?
