Look P12 heel play

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Anyone else seeing large amounts of play in 'higher milege' heel pieces? I'm talking about the turntable being loose on the adjustable rail. Is there a way to fix this?

Need to read closer,my bad. Isn't there a spring loaded clip that retains the adjustment bars?

Perhaps I'm the one not being clear enough. With the boot in place, there is play between the turntable assy. and the ski. This is the P12 version with the 'solid' arms not the older full turntable. This then was replaced by the PX12.

Gotcha. Have you check the mounting screw under the heel?

Good call.  The old Pivot/Axial bindings had a reputation for having the mount place screws back out.  I had that problem due to a piss poor mount.  The heel-piece ended up with a huge amount of play until I removed them, counter-sank the drill holes and remounted them with glue in the holes.

If the mounting screws are tight, there is no fix.  This is why I threw all but one pair of my Axial 14s out...I'm keeping one for posterity.

Pretty common issue.  The P12 heels (same as p10, p14) tended to develop a bit of slop over time.  It was one of the drawbacks to that binding.  There is pretty much nothing you can do about it

Yeah I figured that was the case. It is a bit disapointing since their earlier bindings were so bulletproof (think METAL, n17, n57, n77). What is LOOK's position on this issue? Whiteroom any feedback? Ever warranty this problem?

This is not a warranty issue.  This is a wear and tear issue that is the result of using the bindings.  Look has previously stated that the slop you are noticing is inconsequential to your skiing as once the system is loaded with weight the dynamics of skiing reduce the slop. 

 

I'm a Look guy and loved the turntable bindings (although I used the other heal P18) and I've been quite happy with my PX18's.  One of the things addressed with the P to PX conversion was this slop

Does anyone know off hand if the PX18 heel has the same hole pattern as the last of the P series heels?

It is a different pattern.

I have several models and recently bought the PX Race 15 (think that's right). It has more metal components in the heel, so I expect greater longevity. weighs a ton, but no big deal there. I have an older PX and the Lifter models. I'll let you know if they fade.

Do you know if the heels share any holes?
