Just make sure it's secure and check it often through the day. If your highback comes off in mid-flight and your foot slips out of the binding... your highback will be the least of your worries. You could be riding next season with a knee brace that costs more than your board.

Wow quick reply from K2.

They told me to send them my shipping info and they can get some hardware out to me. So I did. We'll wait and see how this turns out.

Bringing this thread back from the dead.

Heading up to Mammoth tomorrow. Waxed the SL-R and was putting the K2 Formula bindings back on Monday night when I noticed I was missing the same screw and nut assembly for my back foot. Must've lost it on my previous outing. Submitted the contact form to K2 that same night but haven't heard anything from them since. BA did remind me that they might be busy with SIA.

So last night went to Lowe's and bought a 1/4 x 1/2 carriage bolt, lock washer, and stop nut (with nylon to prevent loosening)for $0.30. Reattached the highback to the heelcup and it's snug so it shouldn't prematurely fall apart. Hopefully I hear back from K2 about getting the correct replacement parts.
