broken toe strap

i know this is a common thing, but i don't know how to go about it.. the straps in 2 pieces and i could probably do a make shift job (duck tape) to put them back. what do most people do?? i went into the board shop today and they didn't give me much help, any ideas would be appreciated.

do you have an email or phone number that i could contact them at? i went to the support page on their website, and there's no info besides an address. i tried clicking on the "support faqs" link and nothing happens. i'm kinda SOL without any way to contact them. it is the ratchet too, so it's not like i can just grab a generic ladder at the shop. i really appreciate the quick reply snowolf.

@ dm, a second kirkwoods request as to what model you have. we might be able to shell out some advice if you let us in on what you're riding.

yeah its the ratchet that's broken, it wouldn't be a problem had it been the ladder...

i just got a burton dominant for this season and i threw on an old pair (~3 years) of burton freestyles v11.0. Do they make generic ratchets that can be used on most bindings or should i contact burton directly?? Its probably time to get new bindings, but i wasnt planning on it just yet, as these were treating me well still. Should i bite the bullet and take this as a cue to get new ones, or ...
What makes this worse is im hittin the hill tomorrow so any quick temporary fix would be ideal.but it probably doesnt exist

Meh. Just ride without your toe strap. It's not like you need it anyhow.

I wouldn't waste my time putting Burton straps on it, just get some new ride convertible toe straps, you won't regret it.
