Because you have NO idea how to adjust them?
So the bindings were mounted to a flat ski, that means that someone drilled holes and put the binding on? That means your 'sticker' is there to cover the tech's ass. he didn't have your
boot, so he couldn't perform a function test. Odd's are the binding IS
set correctly, he just can't know what condition your boots are in so he can't say "Everything is perfect"... so you get a sticker.
Marker DOES NOT WANT CONSUMERS ADJUSTING THEIR OWN BINDINGS. They don't tell you how to do it because they don't want you to do it, get it? Why is this hard to understand?
I couldn't care less about your 'safety' so I'll tell you how:
step 1: pick ski up to eye level looking toward light source, inspect that the binding is flat on the ski and fully screwed down... no gaps of light. Surprising how often this is screwed up.
step 2: place boot in binding, look at back of heel piece. There is a screw facing toward the tail low on the binding (there are two, you want the lower), it should be flush to the binding housing for correct forward pressure. If it sticks out remove your boot and tighten then reinsert boot... check again. repeat until flush.
step 3: drink a beer.
step 4: Check visual indicator settings for DIN (there are 4)... look OK? Good.
step 5: drink another beer. Done.
