Another stupid binding question, spare bolts
After having spent a week up in the mountain riding my new (and first) snowboard, i decided to try a different binding set up. I realized from the obscure forum manual that pretty much every part is adjustable, so i decided to try and rotate the back plate on the forward binding. It's sitting at 21 or 24 degrees (not sure since it seems like the marks are not aligned well) so i tried rotating the blackplate so its more parallel to the board edge, rather than pointing diagonally.
Well, i unscrewed one bolt flawlessly, but the other one felt like it was cemented. After using WD40, and trying to bulge it by doing minute turns in both directions i somehow managed to unscrew it, but i'm afraid that i damaged the bolt a bit. Shiny metal can definitely be seen through the black paint, and i'm afraid to unscrew it again, or tighten it the way it says on their website:
"Screws should be tightened until seated and then tightened three full turns."
Everything on the bindings seems less flexible when i took the board inside again. Straps, back plate. I was hardly able to unscrew the plate and change the angles. Is this something basic knowledge with which im unfamiliar with, like things expand and contract depending on temperature or am i crazy?
Also, is it possible to find spare bolts for bindings? Are they standardized? I've been googling a bit but i cant find anything.
