You have to use the washers provided by union NOT the black ones providied by burton that you get with the 13mm screws.

Plus you have to use a #3 screw driver (duh). You may think a #2 will work but it wont get the screws tight enough. USe a number 3.

Use some threadlock of some sort.

NICE!! Glad to hear it worked out for ya and it didn't cost you some hard earned bills. Always like hearing about someone saving a setup and some cash at the same time.

edlo Take it easy with the loctite you don't want to put too much, if you ever take out the screw make sure there isn't any loctite at the bottom of the holes when reinstalling. Too much loctite collected at the bottoms can actually cause problems. Shops around here will actually give you free screw with loctite on it.

If it doesn't work at least you tried everything possible to fix it. I hope everything works out and you can avoid shelling out the scratch for new bindings. On a high not, if you end up getting new bindings and go with burton EST you will get the full benefit if the EST system.

If not I am going to nuke down a hill into a tree. (Or maybe I should call union and ask for a new pair of bindings in the event these ones are warped?)
If it turns out the base plates are warped, (doubtful, but it could happen) call union and request new baseplates they have a lifetime warranty. Hope the new hardware and discs solve your problem. It's what I would do before I shelled out a few hundred bucks for bindings.

Try some grip tape. Put some on the board and on the binding. It shouldn't slide with those two surfaces pressed together.

What I would try is simple, and cost you a lot less than new bindings. New discs and hardware first. You should be able to get everything you need with two phone calls, one to C3 and the other to Burton. I wouldn't be surprised for free. Try replacing all your hardware M6 sliders and bolts as well (due to heavy tightening something could be bent slightly) and the discs, before dumping two or three bills on new bindings. What do you have to lose by trying that, 10 bucks or so?

Don't cut off the head to stop the headache first. Try the cheap route, if it still is screwed up then I would replace your bindings because your baseplates might be warped causing play when the board flexes. Hope it's just the discs, good luck.
