Binding help

I am adjusting my bindings and one of the insert holes on the front binding is not covered. Do I need to adjust it so it is covered? Will anything happen if I don't?

You'se gonna be fine bud. It'll fill up with snow and then melt and nobody on the hill is gonna laugh at you. Unlike here.

Semen

I keep extra semen in those holes in case I run out.

Looks to me like it’s aluminum, which doesn’t rust.

Obviously a huge issue for the tens of thousands of snowboards out there, pretty much all of which have multiple insert holes open/uncovered...

I was actually somewhat hoping that this was a trolling attempt, because the idea that somebody from a younger generation would ask this as a serious question fills me with dread for the future of this country/planet.

THIS thread is what makes your question about the Virus vs Kessler thread even more hilarious. I'm seriously starting to doubt you've even spent a season on the snow yet.

To be fair, not everyone can recognize metals, especially younger folks with less experience (or less interest) in them. We use many different metals at work, and I still sometimes have a hard time telling some of them apart...

remember this as well as every other insert on your board is exposed to the snow and water and they are just fine. So with that the inserts that won't be used should be just fine as well.

I run a tap into the threads of my all my inserts on every brand new board to clean out any glue residue from the building process. I also clean them out 2x a year. The end of the season when they go into storage and mid season just in case I want to make a binding adjustment. I usually don't move them now that I found the sweet spot of where I like them, but I still clean them out.



If you are so concerned buy yourself a tap and clean them out when you wax your board for your piece of mind

I don't care about my stance, I always make sure my holes are covered....
