They pretty much install like any other binding. 4 screws into the disc. There is a cover plate etc. The bigger thing is taking your time to fine tune the strap to your boot.

Don't overtighten the strap. The boot should freely slip in without the back plate getting hung up on the heel of the boot. You can get a tighter fit by increasing the back plate angle instead.

Well generally they do come with instructions you should find what you need there.

The strap advice is spot on. You need a little forward lean to keep the back from catching on your boot. I have to re adjust my flow's to keep from doing this. Otherwise they are a nice comfortable binder.

Thanks

Im just having troble getting the internal disck that fits in binding to adhere to the board... plus, ive never done this and im partially brain dead since i was up all night with food poisoning ... so im a little slow today

the disks that fits in the center of the binding came with 8 screws and 8 washers ... it seems as though when i place the screw into the washer, and then place them (as one unit) through the plate/disk in an attempt to get the screw to interface witht he threads on the board itself, its not working ... i can tell the screws arent too short, but the arent grabbing the female threads onthe board either ...

Duncan

im assuming by strap we r both talking about the 'web' that goes across the bridge of the foot ... i adjusted that and then turned the knob/dial on the back of the binding that controls the tension of the cable around mt heel to about 75% of max ... that made the plastic heel plate lock in more forward than how it was initially set up (out of the box)

overall it feels snug... im not sure how to trouble shoot it, but initially i think the strap across the toes was too tight(i loosened it) and the one across the bridge of my foot near the ankle was very loose, so i cranked it down, but just so that when the heel plate is locked in, the piece across my foot bridge feels very tight and secure

I hope these work ...

let me know what you think about setup/placement, if you can see it

i have my back foot (R) set up almost perpedicular to the board (maybe 3 degrees toes toward the rear) and the front binding is angled maybe 10-15 degrees toward the front

when i was tightening the screws as i placed the bindings, i tightened them as tight as i could and made a couple of passes over each to retighten, etc

About the only thing I can say is wiggle the bindings to see if they move. If the scoot around you probably need to add a washer. This rarely happens with any binder, but I've seen it. I think you are going to need to set a little more forward lean on your binding too. Otherwise they look fine.
Stance width and angles is completely up to you. So as far as that goes, if it works for you then it's perfect.
