About 3 weeks ago was the first time I bought my own gear. I didn't know much about bindings but I knew the cartels were good for all mountain riding. My third day out the ratchet on the bigger strap of my left foot locked up. Other than that problem I like the bindings, but has anyone had any problems with the high backs breaking off because of the two small connections and the screw in the middle. I can't and don't want to return them because they are good bindings, but are there any ways I can reinforce the high backs.
