I just mounted the binding and heel shims on K2 Schi Devils. Could not be easier! The heel shim anti ice-plate screws went in beautifully. The binding anti-ice plate screw and nylock nut were another matter. These are not the same size and I had quite a mess getting this out. BC has not heard of this yet this year. Has anyone else encountered this? I am not sure why a locking nut is used in a part (anti-ice plate) that must be removed to access or replace ALL other parts of the binding.
I suggest removing the binding from the shim to expose the nut. Make sure the machine screw and nut are compatible. Otherwise looks like a solid binding for the wife.
These are okay. They are squeaky (trying to fix that). There is still a good deal of resistance when in the quasi-touring mode they have. My partner will ultimately replace these with true touring bindings that are more active (BD 01s). However, these are lightweight, simple, and decently control her Joules, but she'd like the versatility of having a true free pivot and likely better command of her Joules. If you head for the untouched backcountry try something else, if you spend most of the time getting a lift to the top, these are just fine and economical.
