How do I change the din and what tools do I need?

It has been said a thousand times before: LEAVE DIN ADJUSTING TO SKI TECHS! IF you don't even know what tools you need, I would think that this would apply to you more then most.
That being said a more interesting question would be: When adjusting Atomic bindings for sole length, how "tight" do you turn the binding in for sole adjustment?

Question #1 How do you adjust the DIN on Atomic bindings and what tools do you need. I assume you mean the release settings DIN adjustment.

A #3 posidriver, works for both the toe and heel piece. Turn the upper screw on the heel to adjust the heel DIN. Clockwise is higher DIN Counterclockwise is less. Look at the scale on the top of the heel piece as you turn the screw and set to the proper setting for your height,weight & ability. .

The toe adjustment for DIN is at the front point of the toepiece. Follow the same instructions as the heel. Match your toe & heel settings. Don't forget to adjust the height of the toepiece hold down lug so you have about 1/2 a mm. of clearance under the toe of your boot & the anti friction plate. A credit card thickness is close. You should put the credit card on the antifriction area of the toeplate, click your boot in, pull lightly backwards on the shaft of your boot to slightly raise the toe of the boot and you should be able to pull the credit card out with some friction

Qustions #2 from Artimus

You want the lower screw in the back of the heel flush with the housing when your boot is in the binding.

Thanks Atomic. Now just flush, or one click pass flush?

Both of my boys race on Atomic & I train masters in gates. The 16 year old is 5'11 1/2", 190lbs and my 13 year old 5'2" 140 Lbs and I am 6'0" 187 Lbs.We all ski flush. The older one skis at the regional FIS level and skis SL GS, SG & downhill. You could try one click in but what are you trying to accomplish? Less prerelease? We haven't had that problem with the Atomic bindings!

But you could certainly try it & see what happens. I think prerelease or release when you don't want to is more a matter of technique than binding settings. IOf you get light on a ski at the wrong time in a turn or are sliding part of your turn an d hit a rut, i am not sure it matters what your bindings are set on or how much forward pressure you have, you will probably ping out!

Over & out!

I guess that what I'm getting at is the binding tight enough to prevent slop between the sole and binding interface, but loose enough that the sole won't bind and prevent release. One hint that I'm getting from you is that these bindings are user freindly.
