Screw Torque on K2 inserts

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I recently picked up some K2 Kung Fujas with the Squire Schizo inserts. Does anyone know the proper torque for the screws into the inserts for squire schizos. Searching hasnt turned up anything and the instructions dont list a specific torque.

I'm not sure that there is a good answer for that question.   Have you checked with a ski shop tech?

Just hand tight should do it.

Same torque as a regular binding screw - 4.5Nm

 

If you haven't got a torque 'driver just screw in gently until the screw stops then nip it up an eigth to a quarter turn. Don't over tighten - if you 'lean' on the 'driver it's easy to get another half turn but that's a bit too much.

 

I'd recommend using some Vibratite VC3 theadlock on the screws (dip the screw thread in the solution & let it dry before inserting the screw). Don't using Loctite or similar as it can eat binding plastic if it contacts it when wet.

Ever used really heavy (high viscosity) grease instead of threadlocker?

Nope. I want to lock the screws not lube 'em.

Yeah - the idea is the grease locks them at low temps, allows one to reach torque in controlled fashion at high temps, and also can have a sacrificial metal in case there's a bimetal battery set up.

If VC3 applied at room temperature & then used at 35000 feet cold temperatures is good enough in the Rolls Royce jet engines that fly me to the Alps then I'm comfortable with it securing my bindings biggrin.gif

Funny you mention, the product I'm thinking of is made by the same company.
