I had a couple layers of vinyl from a sticker pack on my ladders. I just wanted something more durable.

I used the aluminum because I didn't want to rely on an adhesive in a cold wet environment and didn't want something that could wear or break down over time. Once on the binding any sharps edges aren't really exposed.

larrytbull I found that the slipping on the ratchets on my 14 nx2-se was cause by my board slapping at end of run. it caused the lock lever to pop up. I have since reformed my board slappiing so that I pay attention to the locks.

t21 That's to bad you have to do all that to fix the issue. I have the AT and i have no issues with it so i assume this is just on the toe cap version

It was been on for 4 weeks now without peeling off and has worked quite well to keep the ladder from tightening up on me when my boots aren't in them

If I have any complaint it's that Flow never properly addressed this issue with the new design starting in 2013. Not sure the 14's got fixed but doesn't seem like it.
I have and still support Flow and they have given me great CS. Still pointing this out as I see it as a downside to Flows.
I had the Fuse and they are still not fixed, LSR is a joke as they have never worked as advertised and flow dont give a shit. The ratchets not working was not the deal braeker with me however, heel lift and boot fit in the binding made me sell them.

ThisIsSnow wow this came at an opportune time, I just contacted Flow about this. Took me a while to realize that my toes hurt at the end of the day because the toe rachets were getting tighter -.-

this would be a good temporary fix until Flow can respond!

surfinsnow Nice fix. But when I pay that kind of money (which I did, and more, for NXT's) I shouldn't have to "fixing" them with old Coke cans and duct tape.
