solucien check this vid: FLOW Snowboarding | Video

ah well, guess thats where you got the screenshots from. duh…
picture 1&2 allow you to fine-tune stance-width and/or setback more precisely
picture 3 allows you to fine-tune toe-to-heel position more precisely

the slots in the disk are off-center, so even with pictures 1&2, you can choose between more toe or more heel offset.

it will come down to your personal preference, and if your boots and bindings need toe/heel adjustment or not.
most important (for response and riding comfort), is that your boots are mounted centered on your board. This means that your toes and heel hang over the edge of your board about an equal amount.
Too much toe or heel overhang can result in you sliding out on the snow during a turn, or if you are unevenly positioned, the board can feel odd to respond.
the amount of mounting inserts in your board can make a difference to.
just play around with it and see what works best for your riding, and have fun with it.

teflon is not needed. the screws are stainless steel, and have blue Nylock on them to reduce loosening. Still always check all your hardware before you go riding to make sure it's all still tight!

supham I would mount using the 3rd photo. you can get slight movement tip-tail OR Right-Left.

The multiple threaded holes already allow for tip to tail. If you use the 3rd photo it gives you more options to center your boot.

atr3yu The disks can be rotated any way you need to. The important thing is that you get your boots centered on the board.

noob: flow bindings disc mount

Hi this is probably a really really dumb question, seeing I couldn't find anyone else asking this..
Anyways I'm mounting bindings for the first time everr. (just got me some flow fuse at's)
In terms of safety, or response or whatever; Is there a difference as to which way the disc is rotated, as well as if the screws are in the middle of the holes?

...and should i add teflon tape to all the screws?
