to answer your first question, you need a credit card (preferably fairly worn down one or a binding card that or any smooth piece of plastic that is is .5mm thick. Place it under your boot on top of the AFD on the binding and below the toe of your boot and lock your boot in the binding. Now tug hard on the boot to make sure the boot toe is as high as it wil go. Now try to pull the card you placed under the toe of the boot on the AFD out. You should have a fair (quite a bit) of friction on the .5mm card when trying to pull it out , but you should be able to get it out. If it is too easy to get out or too hard. repeat the entire procedure after loosening or tightening the height adjustment screw on the toepiece. I set mine so i need to use quite a bit of force to get it out but it does not bind up and i am able to reinsert the card after removing it, back under the toe but it is tight.
make sure you pull your boot back so the toe is pulled up as far as it will go each time you change the adjustment screw.
You can also crank the screw down with the card under the toe until you cannot pull the card out and slowly increase the toe height (still tugging your boot back a couple of times each time you loosen the screw) until you get the friction you want.
