2hipp4u Try moving the ladder straps to the last notch in the base if the binding has the option to do it.

twowheeled shouldn't matter which order you do them. A couple things, give the boot a kick into back of the binding to make sure its seated. After the straps are done up, give the boots a good twist/wiggle and tighten the toes again. Your problem could just be the toe boxes are breaking down and won't hold their shape, letting the cap strap slip. My burton ions are doing this.

slyder Is she bottoming out the ratchet ?
Thinking its as tight as it will go? If this is the case the strap is not adjusted correctly

JamesX I also do toe first and I am on the U.S. West Coast. But she does the ankle strap first then toe.

The strap is on as tightly as it can be. So it is not because its loose. When strapped it everything looks good. The angle of the strap from toe to binding looks like it should hold and it is firm. But after a run or two it will inevitably slip up over the toes.

She'll try to strap it a little lower next time out and see.

ItchEtrigR Never paid too much attention, I like looser fitting ankle straps so I end up strapping the toe cap first nice and tight then just lap over the ankle straps as tight as I can with my hands then 2 to 3 clicks on the ratchets.

Loose toe caps have happened to me before on my Triads, I fitted my bindings but forgot to extend the toe ramp to the edge of the board. Not sure if your buddy is having the same issue.

I've actually never looked! I feel like the toe cap pulls the whole foot towards the back of the binding. If the ankle strap was done up first, it would be pressing the sole into the footbed and wouldn't allow you to wiggle back properly.

I'm OCD to an extreme though, so if I perceive an advantage (whether real or not) I'll do the same thing EVERY time. I get angry when my fiancee talks to me with the front door open, then I run my computer and a heater 24 hrs a day...

thedru13 I had an issue similar with my binding. I adjusted the ladder and the toe cap. I pulled the binding off and moved one to the front spot then the other to the rear position of the binding. So toe cap set forward ladder set to the back spot.. Didn;t slip off my toe again..
