jimster716 Bringing this thread back from the dead.

Heading up to Mammoth tomorrow. Waxed the SL-R and was putting the K2 Formula bindings back on Monday night when I noticed I was missing the same screw and nut assembly for my back foot. Must've lost it on my previous outing. Submitted the contact form to K2 that same night but haven't heard anything from them since. BA did remind me that they might be busy with SIA.

So last night went to Lowe's and bought a 1/4 x 1/2 carriage bolt, lock washer, and stop nut (with nylon to prevent loosening)for $0.30. Reattached the highback to the heelcup and it's snug so it shouldn't prematurely fall apart. Hopefully I hear back from K2 about getting the correct replacement parts.

chowman94 +1 for k2 customer service

markee Wow quick reply from K2.

They told me to send them my shipping info and they can get some hardware out to me. So I did. We'll wait and see how this turns out.

MunkySpunk Just make sure it's secure and check it often through the day. If your highback comes off in mid-flight and your foot slips out of the binding... your highback will be the least of your worries. You could be riding next season with a knee brace that costs more than your board.

markee Home Depot, here I come...

MunkySpunk For what it's worth, I broke my K2 Cinch last year (my fault, not K2's) and they sent out a replacement mega-fast. Try calling them on the phone, worked for me, and it was the height of the season. Great customer service.

chowman94 yea, id go ahead and find a temporary fix until you sort it out with k2

I'll probably do this, so I can get out and ride this weekend, although we all know that the man's temporary fix is of course the permanent one...

markee,

I filled out the parts request form and just described it as best as I could, but since I don't have them yet, I'm not sure what they will actually send me.

jimmerjammermrk I probably wouldn't ride like that, but that's just me.
