Mounting Tyriloia Carve plates

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is there any reason for me to not mount a new set of Tyrolia Carve plates myself? I am very mechanical...even do it for work. I trust myself more than the 17 year olds at the local shops.

The 2 shops I do trust are over an hour away.

Hmm, I believe they use a template provided by Tyrolia to mount them(could be mistaken about this). So.....maybe let a shop that moves a good amount of Head/Tyrolia gear mount it for you. IMHO

I dont know where in Jersey you are but Princeton Ski is a big HEAD dealer, they know what to do.

The plate came mounted to a piece of plastic used for display purposes. It also has all the exact holes drilled into it. I figured I could use this (at least one time) as a jig. I know people who use paper jigs, this has got to be better.

It probably is, and you can probably center it yourself.

Of course, they could also have gotten the front-to-back spacing wrong for a cambered ski, and you'd never notice on a flat plate.

The plate is designed to work with their freeflex binding, so its actually 2 plates F & R pushed together. It uses 2 oblong holes on each end to allow it to flex.

No way. They got the glutamate wrong.
