Exposed binding holes
 
Hello.

The most inner binding holes on my Atomic Hatchet board are exposed due to the bindings being mounted quite wide. Will this be a problem when snow is clogging up in the holes. Will it rust?

Is it posible to get some kind of plasticcaps to fill up the holes?

Thanks

I don't have a problem with it mine are the same all you pretty much can do is just dry it off when your done boarding

My previous board had some of the mounting holes exposed as well. Rode the board for two years without it ever rusting. Just take your board inside, lean it on its side to dry out.

The inserts I believe are stainless steel in mass majority which means, rust free.

That sounds good.

Thanks everyone

If you're completely anal about snow getting into binding holes, you can get grub screws.

how deep is the rust? is it just superficial and not deep or is it deep, embedded rust?

Also, is the rust in the binding inserts that you want to use? If so, can you work it out by bolting/unbolting a few times?

Honestly, if it's positions you'll never use I'd just clean it, wd-40 it, and not worry. You'll replace the board before the rust will do any damage to the board itself. (Unless you're planning on re-selling it someday?)

If it's positions you need and you can't clean it out, the board is a doorstop and should be returned asap.
