LF Cradle 2013 bindings screws get loose

Postby dandaka » Sat Jul 13, 2013 1:29 pm

Hi, guys!

Have small problem with LF Cradle 2013 (http://liquidforcekites.com/wp-content/ ... 00x479.jpg). Every 3 sessions I have to tighten screws on my bindings. Otherwise they get loose and start moving on board.

Is there any way to fix it? Maybe put additional ring?

My friend has 2012 with same board (Tona Pop) — no problem, because they had different screw that year.

try putting a drop or two of lock tight on the threads. They make a few strengths of the stuff. Try the less permanent version.

Yeah I would guess locktite would help, I have the same boots on an influence and have never had this problem

Before trying any lock tight, try wrapping some dental floss around the threads. Then retighten. i have found this to work. Lock tight might get you into another problem.
