Default Stripped Inserts?

Hi I was just wondering does it matter how much times you take of your bindings because I am very OCD and I keep taking the bindings off the board to check if the inserts are stripped. Also how do you tell if your bindings are stripped and is it alright if the binding screws go in a tiny bit of an angle?

If you keep messing with them you'll strip your inserts.

Keep them snugged up but don't take your bindings of to check for no reason

there's more chance of you stripping the inserts if you keep taking them on and off. you're over thinking it. just put the bindings on and leave them, tightening them and checking them every few days of riding.

Thanks for the answer but like how much times can I take it off before it starts to strip and is it fine that the screws go in at a bit of an angle. Also when I first got my board I tightened the first binding screw to the max instead of just tightening them all loose and than tightening them at the same time and I heard that was bad for your board is that true?

If you have removed them more than 2 times then your board and bindings are ruined!!!!!!

The 2 biggest causes of stripped inserts are screws that are too short and impact drivers.

Unless the insert is crooked then you will cross thread the bolt ending stripping it. STOP MESSING WITH THEM!!!!!
