Question Bindings are now Binders?

Maybe because I'm turning 38 next year and I'm getting older but when the heck did people start using the word binders instead of bindings? I'm seeing the word binders more and more instead of bindings?

kids I'm about the same age.
Binders are a great set of brakes on your car. You hit the binders after you've run a 10.7 at the track that night

Skiers have been using the term for a long time. Pre 90's for sure. I imagine boarders have been from the time we first started using them.

I prefer the term Gripper Grips!

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

Snowboarders who call bindings "binders" are poselings.
