I've mounted my own bindings for about 40 years (back when there was real snow and we skied 10 miles to school and back each day!!), but this is the first "rail" system that I am doing. My question is about the Fischer Railflex 2. From what I can gather here and elsewhere, one simply pushes the plastic slots on both ends of the connector piece into the bottom of the bindings at the proper points and then slides the whole contraption on the rails and firmly attaches the center screw on the connector piece to the threaded bolt in the center of the ski. Is that it? Is that one screw, and the rails of course, adequate to hold the binding in place? What about the usual mounting screws that exist in each binding piece? What purpose do they serve? They obviously do not seem long enough to sink into the core of the ski, but are they supposed to be sunk into the central part of the rail device in some fashion? Hopefully my questions are not too naive. Please let me know if I am missing something. Thanks.
