Rome Snowboard Warranty Question

Hey All,

Well I just got off the mountain for the last time this season but I have a little problem. I just got my new 09 rome agent 2 weeks ago and I got the bindings put on by a tech. Well when I took the bindings off for the season I saw blue loctite on the binding screws. When I looked at the rome's warranty it says something about a voided warranty if adhesives like loctite are used. Does this mean that the warranty is void because of something the tech did? I since removed the loctite and just have teflon taped around the screws. I'm afraid that if i ever need to send the board in for repair they will see there was previously loctite on there and not honor the warranty. Can anyone give me any advice?

I don't know but both of my Rome bindings (Arsenals & 390s) came with screws that were pre-treated with the blue loctite. I processed a warranty claim with them earlier this year for a board with a delamnated topsheet that had my Arsenals mounted to them with no problem. I coudn't tell you if it had blue locktite residue in the screw hole though. Anyway, Rome customer service was extemely helpful and sent me a brand new board.

You have nothing to worry about here...

Thanks for all the help! Its good to know that the loctite won't void the warranty. One last question, if I take fine grit sandpaper to the top sheet and edges of the board to remove nicks and burs as well as marks left after removing the bindings for the season, that wouldn't void the warranty either would it? Thanks again for all the help

considering rome puts blue loctite on their own bindings screws, no.

That is the locktight that comes on the binding screws.
