Thumbs down Bindings getting stuck

Hey! So I've only used my board 3 times.. but I find the strap that goes over my toes gets so stuck when my feet are in them.. the ankle strap comes off fine.. I had to just force my foot out of the binding during the last trip to cypress.. very frustrating.. what can I do?? Can I grease them with white grease? They are Lamar bindings..Please help... I've only used the board three times.. I don't want to have to buy new bindings..

(I bought the board 8 years ago so I can't return the bindings.)

Thanks!!

pictures/video would help. How is it getting stuck? Your boots get stuck? The toe strap is not releasing? Caked with ice so it's not releasing? You can buy new straps/ladders to replace them or you can switch them (left to right, right to left) because most of the time you keep one strap on so it won't matter if it's stuck on your lead foot. Or you can buy cheap bindings used.

Don't know what kind of bindings you have. You could try to replace the toe strap with these: Burton Gettagrip capstrap.

If youre tightening your toe straps down a lot you could be overtightening them causing them to not want to release.

Yup new straps is the cheapest option. Being 8 years old doesn't help compounded by the fact they are Lamar equates into time for new bindings.
