Default Bindings keep coming loose.

Hey guys,

Yesterday was my first day out this season and I had a blast. I just had a little problem as the day went by. Every 4/5 runs my bindings would start coming loose and I would have to retighten them. Not in the sense that my feet were coming out of the bindings, but in the sense that the bindings were coming loose off the board! This happened towards the end of the season last year too.

I'm riding a 2008 burton custom with the 3 screw burton system with flow bindings.

Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else and if there is a way to get it to stop. (and i made sure i made it as tight as possible before I went out that day)

Thx

A drop of blue loctite on each screw

No worries buddy. Now don't over tighten them now.... Just get them pretty snug and they won't back out. And make sure you get blue, NOT red.

The loctite should do the trick for sure. The screws that came with my Flows always seemed to come loose until I added some loctite to them.

My 2009/2010 Rome 390 screws actually came with loctite tape on them, pretty interesting.

I thought if you used loctite you may not get them off again?

Use red and you wont get them back off unless you're super lucky. That's why I said use blue

Indeed use blue. Normally with red loctite you have to use a torch to get the thing that you loctited loose.
