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

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.

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

Screw being normal

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

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

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.


Error 404. Coffee not found.
