Hi guys, this is my first post here.
I started skiing this season, and decided it was time to upgrade from rental boots and skis. I went to a used skiing store and picked up a set of new old stock set of Salomon Performa 8 boots, K2 Apache X skis with Look Speedset bindings. I'm not sure if this is considered "good" gear, but I suppose it will get me by until I learn more and can utilize some newer stuff.
The ski store set everything up for me, and set me on my way. When I got home I noticed that the binding has a "lock" lever on the front. This is probably a stupid question, but what is the function of this "lock" lever? I just don't want to break my ankle when I fall so I thought I had better ask.
I have attached an image of what I'm talking about:
