Alright i know lots of people will be like "Dude you're an idiot why are you wearing your skis in your dining room!" But I missed winter like crazy and I hadn't felt the buttery awesomeness of the Domains in far too long. So would you consider this my fault or the shop that did it? I personally think that a binding should be able to hold up to this because I only weigh 135lbs. Has this happened to anyone else? If so can the shop fix it? And am I the only one who wears their skis in the summer?? I appreciate the feedback.

Okay no, bindings shouldn't do that, on or off the snow. The DIN should release first, and then after years and years of being banged up the bindings will stop working great. They don't just "come off." That would be defective good sir. Take them back.
I'm not a big fan of lying, so I would first suggest show them the video.
If you know the shop guys and they seem like pricks you can tell them it happened towards the end of the season and scared the shit out of you or something.
Ski people are generally reasonable though. Do what you'll feel would work.
How old are the skis? How much damage have you done the the edges and sidewalls? Do you have any core shots? The reason I ask is it looks like your core has hot wet and that has lead to the screws not holding firmly in the ski. I would think if it was a mount issue it would have happened sooner but it could be. Check that there are the correct number of holes in the skis. Also look at the holes, does the wood look clean and dry.
In terms of repair, I would get a remount, if the ski core is ok. Some may say helicoil but they never really work for park use and if they pull out you really are screwed. But take them to the shop which mounted them and tell them what happened and be honest. Hopefully you can just get a remount. Take both skis as you will want both skis remounted to the same position.
ya the real question is how beat are they? If they are pretty mangled, water could have gotten into the core and that with the added expansion from warm weather could have opened up everything enough for the pull out. Alternatively the shop could have fucked up and stripped the holes when drilling.

I do stuff like that in the summer too, when i get ski deprived i always do stupid stuff. not your fault, but tell them you were skiing, otherwise they will tell you that your skis weren't meant to do that.
Hard to say really then. Take them back to the ago that mounted them and just say this happened and see what they say. Hopefully they will remount them for free for you. As I said above take both skis as you don't want two differnt mount positions. Good luck and let us know what th shop says.
It was not the fact he was standing in his front room, skiing would put more force on then that. It woul have happened during the season anyway, if it did not happen then. And he can't warranty them, it's a binding pull out you can't warranty that. He just need them remounting.
