Arbor Snowboard Question

Hi all - I picked up some Burton P1 bindings recently and they came with screws that don't match my Arbor A-frame. Arbor has never had bindings mounted, so I don't know what size it needs. Hoping someone knows off-hand so I don't have to lug my snowboard into Home Depot

Screws that don't match? What about the base plate? I had thought Burton was using standard size screws for their binders. If not, they are just whack, and yet another reason I won't buy any hard gear from them. Go to you local snowboard shop. They should be able to hook you up with the screws you need for cheap or free.

yeah they definitely won't fit. They're close but no cigar.

What is a typical size? Is it metric something? Length?

Hell, I don't know what the exact screw size and/or type it is. I do know that Arbor uses the same inserts that everyone else in the industry uses. So check a snowboard shop. They'll have them. Also, I will say that a hardware store will probably have the right diameter, but the length will be too short or too long. At least it used to be that way. If you don't have a shop, check out Porters Tahoe. TahoeChappy on this site is one of their managers. You could always send him a pm. Suburbanblend is another shop guy who is based out of New York. So if you want to stay east coast, shoot him a message and I am sure he'll help you out.

Thread the screws in without the binding first then thread them in with the binding.

Um I wouldn't strip them out, but just hand thread them into the insert. A lot of new boards I've dealt with over the years you just have to feed the screw in without the binding then it'll loosen right up and you can get it on.
