Default loose bindings

yo guys ive been having this problem since last season, my binding are constantly coming loose from runs on the mountian. doesnt really matter what im riding either, whether it be the park or a cruiser run, when i get to the bottom of the run the bindings are all loose from the board. i tried racheting the suckers down and i even tried putting silicon on the screws to make it stay, but it aint staying down tight. i gotta bring my park tool and tighting the damn things down almost every run. so fustrating, can anyone help?

hmm that happened to my last set of bindings and i couldnt figure it out either. Take off the bindings and look at the teeth on the plates that hold them in place and keep from twisting/moving. Mine ended up getting stripped/worn way down so there was barely anything for the binding to grip onto anyomre, no matter how tight i got the screws, they moved after about 1 run. Check that, and if they are stripped out you'll need to somehow get new plates, or get new bindings. I was due for new bindings so i just picked up new ones. If it's not that not sure what to tell ya :P

Is there any loctite left on the screws? If not, use clear nail polish, and paint it onto the threads, let dry, and rescrew.

no the screws are unscrewing themselves from the board and as they get loose the binding is able to move and wiggle as im riding.

Boarder, you're a wealth of knowledge. That's a good trick to keep in mind for future.

Coney, try what boarderholic suggested, and let us know how it holds out/improves your situation.

Now there's an idea. I moved my bindings to dif. pos and holes on the board. I'll give the nail polish a shot.
