BurtonAvenger That's not a flow issue, that's not even a binding issue, it's called check your screws.

grafta I'm sorry but what has this got to do with Flows specifically? Arn't we just talking about the bolts that hold the base plate down fastening the bindings to the board? Except burtons channel thing isn't it pretty much the same for most other bindings? Educate me.

How does replacing your bindings stop the bolts coming loose?

This happened to my sons flow bindings at the top of Great Western lift at Brighton Utah, in the middle of a blizzard. I couldn't get the bolts back in because the holes were filled with ice, and my fingers were numb because I took off my gloves to grip the screwdriver and bolts. I eventually took the binding off and rode down with only the front binding and gave him my board.

He still loves his flows, but I have replaced mine because I got tired of the bolts working themselves loose.

I never considered that, def handy not loosing bolts and big plus binding not coming all the way free! Think my contrabands have something similar goin on Damn, nothing like a board acting as a giant lever to destroy the knees.

BurtonAvenger Yanked the binding right off and left the board on the load ramp with the disk.

KahWhyC I did the same thing once, the rear binding came off while I was doing a speed check.
I sat there in the middle of the mountain trying to re tighten my bindings with my house keys.

Naw, my immediate assumption is that I didn't tighten them up enough last time I had them off. This is the first time I've had this happen, and only on one binding. So, operator error.

slyder I have never had an issue with the base plate screws on my NXT-ATSE's I wax my board every 3 outings so I'm always loosening them to wax and they have always been tight.
I did have a buckle strap loosen up but it was a fast fix at the base of the hill.

Glad you didn't loose the binding while you were riding. That could have hurt bad depending where you were at the time.

I hope you didn't loose the faith in them....
