pailhead The heel loop has a channel running in the middle of it. The high back has two linear teeth running along the part that should fit into the heel loop, when i raise the highback, it snaps into place (you can actually hear a click) and it stays there. I need to use some force to "unsnap" it, and lower it. That was definitely like that when i took them out of the box, possibly even worse, as one took a lot of pushing to unsnap.

What do you mean "unsnap it and lower it"? The highback should easily flip into place without force and sit flush with the heel loop.

pailhead Right but it's supposed to be adjustable, i mean, if i didnt dismantle it and tried to mess with it to adjust it i would have had the same trouble im having right now.

Unlike my forums, these have teeth that lock the binding, i don't think it will ever move freely.

Irish2685 No, it should move back and forth freely. You have one side pushed too far back. Loosen one screw, and move it slightly forward until it moves freely.

As suggested, next time you take your board somewhere, remove the bindings completely. It's much easier to reinstall them that way and get them perfectly where you want them than it has been for you to reinstall the highbacks.

fostpaint Depending on how big that gap is, you should be fine. I've got the same thing on my P1.1s but it's only a 1/16th of an inch or so on the one side, and the gap closes when pressure is applied back on the highback.

pailhead This turned into a really big deal, it isn't, i was just surprised that it's got an adjustment system like this.

I try to lift the highback, press it firmly onto the bridge thing, so it sort of snaps in place, but still when i put the screw, it moves the highback a bit and you get the red gap.
