24WERD the reflex binding disc arrow is off to the side. Look for it.

when you tighten , once it gets tight then do the other ones and then turn each one 1/4 of a turn rotating the each screw so they tighen at the same time. Basically dont just tighen one real tight and goto the next one and do the same thing. you will cross thread the screw.

hardasacatshead That's a bit of thread lock, it's meant to be there. It stops the screws from vibrating out once they're in. Crank 'em buddy, you'll be alright.

Tourn I looked again at the screws and they seem to have a kind of blue plastic on them that makes the size bigger?

Any help will be appreciated, thanks.
A little hard to see in the pics but here is my assessment.

Every tick on the disc is 3 degrees so you will be one tick from the 18 degree mark toward the 9 degree mark.

The screws should not get tight until they bottom out if you install them without the bindings. Make sure you are not cross threading them. You should be able to install them with very little pressure. Try a different hole and a different screw to make sure the threads aren't boogered on one of them. Inspect the screws to verify the threads are clean and uniform.

When you have the bindings installed, the screws engage about 2 or 3 threads before they start getting tight. To see if it is getting tight correctly, the bindings should start to get harder to move around. If the screw is getting tight but the bindings are still loose, then it has been cross threaded or may have a spot on the screw that you can file clean.
