I think it was because I tightened them in a warm room and then when I took it outside it was cold and with everything contracting it loosened them up.

Fantastic recommendations here thanks everyone!!!!
Nice dude congrats!

It took me a while to get my settings dialed in, don't be afraid to change it around. I adjusted my stance width, binding angles, and highback lean almost every day I was on the mountain until I found the settings that were most comfortable.
Yea I thought I'd be alright but glad someone agrees! I'm hoping to try it all out today!

I just uploaded a pic, but rear right foot is at 1.5" overhang, I uploaded a pic of how much of an angle I can get before the heel drags above.

paladyr Perfect guys thanks. Should I aim for identical boot overhang on heel and toe side? Right now on the rear foot I have the most overhang out of all locations and it seems like it might be too much. I've already moved the bindings forward when mounting them on the rear side. This is the angle at which the heel drags:

I cant understand what this guy is talking, but what he did should help you a lot

Dutty pull up on the tabs near the heel of the footbed. It takes a decent amount of pressure, but once you unlatch both, the bed will lift up.

Congrats on the new bindings

paladyr Alright I got everything, but these cartel bindings came with basically no documentation. I think I need to remove the footbed to mount them to the board but there is no mention of how to do this in the tiny manual that came with them. Also, everything is covered so if there are screws I can't see them, and I don't want to go pulling anything in case it's not meant to be pulled off. Can someone guide me on how I remove this footbed? Thanks!
