Bindings not lining up (Installation Question)

I'm trying to install my 2009 Union Force bindings onto my 2009 Burton Custom 3D. The plates aren't lining up to the holes and I'm not sure if I need an adapter or something? Obviously I'm using the middle 4 holes and I've turned the plates both ways and they're just a little bit off. Anyone with some experience with this, help!

Thanks for helping me out.. I've watched the binding installation videos and none seem to address this kind of issue.

Burton uses a proprietary 3D hole pattern while most other manufactures use a 4x4 pattern. Most binding companies make discs for their bindings to fit the Burton 3D pattern and you should be able to get them for free from the shop you bought the bindings from.

independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

adapters dont come with the board. they are a binding item i.e. you have to order them from your binding manufacturer or request them. the board has nothing to do with it.

I picked up a pair of Force-MCs last night. The discs just had two oval holes so you could put the screws where ever they needed to be. The mounted right up to my Custom X.

Ask Union for a universal disc.

You can also try rotating the disc 45 degrees - this works for some discs as a quick fix.

on a 09 union force and 09 burton custom...

using the union base plate with two oval holes, do we need to have 4 screws in?

or as long as i can get 3 screws in its fine?

are the universal disk from union better?
