Default Adjusting bindings to fit boot better???

I was putting some new bindings I got on my board today and I saw a few different places for adjustments (besides the straps). Like a clip on the back of the binding that has some numbers next to it and looks like it adjusts something. And a screw on the bottom side of the binding that looks like it adjusts something as well... Are there any use for these things? Can I adjust the binding to fit my boot better? I have the Burton Customs if that makes a difference. Medium binding size 9.5 boot. Thanks

Edit: Default in thread title shouldn't be there >

Sounds like you are talking about the forward lean adjustment and the highback rotation. The clip at the back of the binding adjusts how much you want that highback to lean forward, causing your knees to bend slightly. Most people start with no forward lean, but play around with it to see what you like.

The other adjustment rotates the highback to give you more control going heelside. Loosen those screws and turn the back of your binding so it's as close to parallel to your heelside as you can get it. Tighten 'em back up, and you are ready to party like Andrew WK.

Thanks man! Great info. This part I'm not understanding though.... "Loosen those screws and turn the back of your binding so it's as close to parallel to your heelside as you can get it." Do I do this with my boots in the binding? What do you mean 'as close to parallel to your heelside as you can get it'? Thanks again dude.

What he means is, when you angle your bindings, the high backs also become angled, therefore no longer being parallel to the heel edge. Being parallel to the heel edge provides a better transfer, making heel side turns easier. I never found much of a difference, and don't rotate my high backs personally.

Pic to demonstrate.
