Exclamation Burton Snowboard holes don't fit bindigs plate.

Hi,

I can't seem to align all 4 holes with the plate of my bindings. I can only get 2 screws in whatever position i find... Is this normal? Any recommendations?

Thanks,

Use a 4-hole disc, genius.

Yeah Burton boards rock that "3D" hole crap. You need plates from Burton Bindings. You can use any kind of binding, but you'll need to buy the Burton plate at a local shop. Almost every shop will have them. I don't like the concept, kind of a bad marketing ploy I think. I ride Burton bindings often, but not the boards. So I would give you all the extra plates I got laying around if I could =P. But they will cost you like $8 at a shop. I know straps cost like $2 or free. You might be able to get them free because Burton is somewhat cool about sending shops lots of extra parts for their gear. Ask around, your shop attendent should have told you that in the first place, unless you bought the board online.

I had to get some of those disks as well. Luckily I live about 4 miles from the factory store, they give the disks out for free.

how about before you make a sarcastic comment you tell him the correct answer, which is 3 hole, and consider the fact that he doesn't know there are 4 hole and 3 hole.

It seems like most bindings come with a set of 4 hole and 3 hole plates in case you want to use them with a Burton board. I know there are a few sets of unused 3 hole plates lurking in my garage.

I'm trying to remember the history of why Burton went with the 3 hole mount. I'm sure someone will have the full story. Was it a tactical move by Burton, to force you to buy B bindings for use with B boards, which was answered by other binding companies creating 3 hole binding disks? I think there was a patent lawsuit about this.

Is Burton's "Channel" system for increased performance and adjustment as they claim, or 2009's version of the 3 hole pattern? Discuss.

I don't know the history of it - I would really like to though.

I think that most likely it is so that it pushes people to buy burton bindings with burton snowboards and vice versa.

Burton is really gay like that and you see it throughout the product line ex: their wax iron has three temps on it, one for each type of burton wax

And why is the lean on the highbacks so retarded? Maybe so it only works with burton boots?

I think so.

I bet their outerwear only zips together if its burton both ways.



The "Channel" is definately part of their plan to make their stuff not compatible with the rest of the market.

And while its definately kinda cool in some ways - it really doesn't do much for the sport (IMO!!). Its just a comfort thing at the most

but hey i haven't ridden it so take this for what it is
