Lots of binding troubles.............
Ok. So i have a scratch 100 binding. The spring in the heelpeice is messed up some how i dont know how to fix it. The spring wont compress when i try to tighten it(the bolt wont tighten) so the heelpeice is left on a super slack release setting which releases all the time no matter what i do. Second of all, that peice that you step into, which makes your brakes go from a verticle position to a horizontal position has snapped off on the same binding. Do you guys have any tips on how to fix this myself i wanna go skiing tomorow. I looked on my ski hills website and they say that they do tune ups and binding checks but i don't know how much of an effort there gonna put into fixing this you know. I dont want them to just try to tigten the bolt on the heelpeice, find it doesnt work, tell me their sorry and charge me 20 bucks for it and i'm afraid thats whats gonna happen. And by the way I have already tried to move my binding heelpeice closer to the toepeice, this does not help at all. I can slam it all the way forward so I can barely get my foot out of the binding but it will still release with ease. I was thinking about taking off both the heelpeice mount and the heelpeice on my ski and then replacing it with another heelpeice and mount. This would have to be a completely different heelpeice and mount then my scratch 100 though, infact it would probably just be a leisure binding, ment for skiing groomers if you know what i mean. Would this work? If I unscrewed my mount could I replace it with another effectivly by myself? I'm not a big hardcore ripper either, I mean i ski in manitoba for fuck sakes. Still tommorow ill be hitting some pipe and tables and rails so I dont want anythign busting ending up in me getting sacked. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.
dude, don't do anything yourself. Except maybe fix the brake. Bring it into a shop and get them to fix it. If you're scraed they are goign to rip you off, bring one of your parents or someone who knows what they are talking about.
Like a virgin on prom night
You can go on the bottom bunk and finish it yourself
When you guys are on those rails, it's like muah
I'm gonna go ahead and recommend A NEW SET OF BINDINGS
Bahahaha... or, you could call it the 'elitist snob' cult. Anyways, my family already owns a country club, so no thanks.
If the screw that adjusts the din is messed up, then get the binding replaced under waranty. Also if there is too much forward pressure it will cause the binding to release super easily.
I got this years scratch 140 bindings and I broke my brakes and heel plate (landing just a 5) I then brought them to a shop to get fixed (new brakes and what not $35) 2 days later I'm skiing and my boot just comes out of my binding, I look at my binding and the entire heel plate is fucked up. Mine are now sent back to Rossi and I'm awaiting a new pair, but what sucks is I can't use my AR5's so I have to use my old volkls (I don't even know what year they are)
get a new heel piece from another set of bindings w/skis to put on the plate if possible, thats what i did.
My question to you is why you're asking a bunch of 13 year olds that have no clue whatsoever about bindings a question like this....
Here's my answer: Go to your local shop and get it taken care of.
Most likely your bindings needs to be replaced, perhaps it'll be under warranty. I don't know why you think you can fix it yourself, when you don't know the problem.
Just screw it and get a new pair of bindings.
get look bindings. all problems will be solved. all problems except for the occasion ass raping by the shaft if you land backseat.
...stick that in your pipe and smoke it!

i thought the look bindings were replicas of the scratches... whats the difference between the p10 and scratch100?
