Binding Specifics:

  • Leash can either be girth hitched to the cable loop on the lever and clipped to boot or vise versa
  • Snow and ice buildup is possible under the toe springs if the bindings are open and skis are on a backpack after touring in wetter snow. Clear this area with ski pole tip and open and closing. Lock then unlock to check if binding is fully clamping the boot.
  • Periodically check that heel unit star bolt heads are tight
