bobepfd That's exactly what they're afraid of. I don't loctite any of my hardware but I do a thorough check before every time out and also throughout the day. Especially if you've recently put your bindings on or made some adjustments they will probly work themselves loose over time.

The only thing they could possibly be referring to is the loctite bonding so well, when you try to loosen it, it rotates the insert instead and breaks the bond to the board.
That's probably what they're worried about. That or someone accidentally using red loctite. Seems funny though, since the binding screws come with loctite on them.

Vlaze That's bullshit, it's metal to metal, the screw on the insert, there is NO wearing elsewhere in light of the Loctite application, doesn't take a genius to figure that out.

For blue loctite, I've never seen this happen. For red loctite, it's possible

LOL, that's probably to be expected, but no. It just says don't use any threadlocking product as it can wear down the nonmetal parts of the binding. I'm just not sure about the validity of this.

Make sure you get the CORRECT blue loctite. There are different types, get the one applicable for metal on metal.

And let it cure 12-24 hours before use.

Dawg Catcher now you learn the importance of an equipment check before you hit the mountain. I always run a complete check from jacket to board the night before takes about 15 min and its well worth saving the embarrassment of walking down a run or potentially hurting yourself

legallyillegal See, if you had non-Burton bindings, you could have lost 2 screws and still be fine.
