|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.|

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

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.

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.

|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..|
