Back of Binding wiggles when stepped in

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Small question here...when i am stepped into my binding and the back part is sticking up into the air (for lack of better terms) i can wiggle it a little bit, I dont think the actual contraption itself is loose or anything if that makes any sense, but the piece that sticks up wiggles a little bit. Is that a common thing or could it be a problem? Funtionally the bindings dont appear to have any issues.

Sorry again for poor binding vocabulary.

What binding? Did you get new boots, that might be shorter than you previous ones? You should bring them into a shop and have them do a calibration test, that will get the forward pressure corrected.

The boots are brand new along with the bindings and skis, they were mounted and calibrated the same day i bought everything together at the same shop, the boots fit fine in the bindings, and are in their securely. Theres just a LITTLE "wiggle" in the back part of the binding that sticks up when you step in....I guess I have a hard time describing what I mean, but I should be able to figure it out, thanks!

You haven't answered the question What brand and what model binding?



Is it a Look or Dynastar?

I think OP means the boot is snug to the ski and heel piece. It is the release lever that wiggles a little bit. If so, as long as they both behave the same you are probably fine. But, if the right heel differs noticeably from the left release lever in amount of play before it engages to release the boot you should take them back for sure. How far away do you live from the dealer anyway? Why not just go back to be sure. I would if I were you.

How are you wiggling it? In other words, what are you doing to cause the wiggle to be noticeable? I agree, the binding brand/model is kind of important to the discussion.

sorry I must have skipped that part when i was reading the replies lol they are Salomon Z10 Titaniums, and when i first noticed the wiggle it was when I put my ski pole onto the release lever to push down and release, i noticed it wiggled as i was trying to make contact, and then i wiggled it with my fingers a little too, there really isnt that much "play" in the wiggle.

Gotcha.

For non-demo Salomons, I'd basically do what crgildart said above.
