Check your nuts!
I just mounted the binding and heel shims on K2 Schi Devils. Could not be easier! The heel shim anti ice-plate screws went in beautifully. The binding anti-ice plate screw and nylock nut were another matter. These are not the same size and I had quite a mess getting this out. BC has not heard of this yet this year. Has anyone else encountered this? I am not sure why a locking nut is used in a part (anti-ice plate) that must be removed to access or replace ALL other parts of the binding.
I suggest removing the binding from the shim to expose the nut. Make sure the machine screw and nut are compatible. Otherwise looks like a solid binding for the wife.
