I have heard of this as well never happened to me though

Is this a new set up or have you been using the same set up. Meaning if you've used the same screws on this board before I doubt they are to long. Have you visually compared all the screws make sure they are all the same length and 1 or 2 isn't longer

Never thought of teflon tape, but worth a try. My vote is always blue loctite someone mentioned clear nail polish as well, again I have never tried that.

Let us know if any of this helped

Yep. I put teflon tape on mine and it's stayed in for 3 months with no wiggle.

I have Burton custom's from 2010 and the front binding has been coming loose after only a few hours on the slopes. Then I have to tighten them again, and then a few hours later they start to wiggle again.

The only explanation I can think of is that the screw holes on my board have been stripped. Is this a problem anyone has seen before? Or is it the binding the true culprit?

The board is pretty much brand new. Atomic send me the board for free in 2010 after I snapped my old one in half, but this is only my second season riding it.

Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
