Dynastar and Roxy Bindings - Rear DIN difficult to adjust

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Was working on a number of pairs of skis in the basement tonight.  Some used skis for the kids that bindings needed to be remounted, DINs set, forward pressure etc.

 

My issue is I purchased two new pair of skis online, both being Dynastars.  One has the Dynastar PX 14 XXL binding, while the other has the Roxy PX 15.

 

I understand both are essentialy a LOOK binding.   My problem is the rear DIN setting on each.  It is almost impossible to turn the rear DIN screw on both sets.  I had no problem setting the forward pressure or setting the DIN on the toepiece; however, the screws on the heel piece are very difficult to turn.  Both hands on the screwdriver torqueing with all my might to make it barely move.

 

What gives?  What am I doing wrong?  I have adjusted numerous bindings over the years, and have never experienced this before.

 

HELP

Don't know about these but the Race PX requires an allen key to adjust the Din on the heel piece.    I had assumed the standard PX was the same

I don't know about these particular bindings, but having occasionally maladjusted a delicate piece of equipmentredface.gif, I would start looking for a set screw to release before turning the adjustment screw.

The boot needs to be clicked in on these and is very important to have Posi-drive screwdriver and apply decent amount of pressure.

Got it with Phillips head, but on closer inspection it was a posi-drive.  It did ultimately take a significant amount of pressure to get it moving.  Both hands turning with everything in my being.

ScotsSkier is correct, the heel is way easier to adjust with an 8mm allen, better leverage..
