Why are my stance angles randomly changing?

I run a 0 degree back foot and lately, the angle keeps shifting forward (giving me a alpine race stance)

I locktite my screws and torque them down so they're all evenly tight (but not too tight) so they're not loose.

The teeth on the plate look fine... they're nice and sharp.


Its only been happening recently. What gives?


Is it possible that I'm forcibly twisting it when I'm riding?

Thanks

I refuse to believe that I can twist my bindings around like that.

B process of elimination I've deduced that ghosts are messing with my stance.

Maybe the teeth in the plate are worn out, to the point that it cause the binding to slip forward.

More likely, are your bindings metal binders vs plastic ones? For whatever reason some of the metal binders ?are too thin, so the screws bottom out before they are tight. Therefore, riding vibrations give you instant stance change. Try adding a washer to them and cranking them down. If they are plastic the teeth are probably worn or they were just crappy binders to begin with. In that case get new ones.

Maybe it's a sign that you are destined to become an alpine race boarder

LOL!

I'm with killclimbz though, the bolts either aren't tight enough, or they are bottoming out. Add a washer, and tighten them down really well.
