Shit happens it still works keep rocking it. Or if you're so inclined look at the spring and see if the end has just slipped out of the groove that used to hold it in and put it back in place with pliers and you're good. Every binding I've ever owned this has happened to I just deal with it.

i think i piece of the spring might have been torn or something. either way i can still strap in no problemo, its just the clicking sound of the ratchet that's annoying.
