hardasacatshead Yup. The insert's thread is confined by the screw's thread, and the screw's thread is confined by the insert's thread.

According to some guy (I think he name was I... Newton, or was is Isaac N...) there's some magic equal and opposing reactions going on here that magically make thread stretching a bit of a wild theory. Don't make me draws vectors and shit.

Do you think mechanics suggest unbolting the head from the block in a car so there is not "constant force on the threaded inserts"? This would be a recipe for a blown headgasket quickly.

These parts are designed to be mated together (bindings and boards), removing them often may not damage anything, but neither will just leaving the damn bindings in place!

QFT

I've heard this more than once but I can't say I've done it more than once. As much force as I put on my bindings I think when ever I'm not strapped in its getting a break (less stress). But for long periods of sit time I think it's a good idea.

Mystery2many Just get another set of bindings and you will save from wear and tear to the bolts and inserts and you will also save time.
