fastaction is the highback knob issue on the 2014-15 model? I know it can be fixed with a zip tie it seems just wondering?

larrytbull Nice , Simple and effective, as well as able to take an impact

jjb7733 Here's my fix,it's not pretty but it's what I have around and it will keep those knobs from turning. Didn't have any locktite or tape, plus I fix everything with zip ties!

t21 With my bindings, i just tape over the knob so it wold not adjust itself while i skate over to the lift lines cuz the highback gets low enough that the snow moves it. It worked for me ever since.

When I had NXT's, I would turn the dial just past where I wanted it, so then when I shut the highback it would move it down to the right spot. I would also just wait for the dial to freeze up as it always did

Hi,

Pleased to hear that you are liking them better now. Is the forward lean adjustment only creeping on your entry (back) binding?

In any event, an easy customization is to apply (paint) a drop of loktite or similar to the thread of the adjuster shaft to physically block the knob from creeping down below the mark that you can determine.

SnowDogWax Thanks Wiredsport and others. Hope my Flow NX2 binding will work as they should this season.

Let us know if you still have discomfort. We can then look to support panel rotation and position if needed. Small tweaks to those elements (and to forward lean) have big impacts on comfort. I would suggest that you make changes in small increments from here.
OK thanks guys, I will try this again soon and hopefully it won't open up on me again, I'm sure it was user error!
