Did they try to sell you some Burton-branded threadlocker?

LOL, that's probably to be expected, but no. It just says don't use any threadlocking product as it can wear down the nonmetal parts of the binding. I'm just not sure about the validity of this.

That's bullshit, it's metal to metal, the screw on the insert, there is NO wearing elsewhere in light of the Loctite application, doesn't take a genius to figure that out. The only thing they could possibly be referring to is the loctite bonding so well, when you try to loosen it, it rotates the insert instead and breaks the bond to the board. For blue loctite, I've never seen this happen. For red loctite, it's possible

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal

That's probably what they're worried about. That or someone accidentally using red loctite. Seems funny though, since the binding screws come with loctite on them.

That's exactly what they're afraid of. I don't loctite any of my hardware but I do a thorough check before every time out and also throughout the day. Especially if you've recently put your bindings on or made some adjustments they will probly work themselves loose over time.
