    5150 snowboard bindings mounting to a burton snowboard

    guys i have a burton snowboard and got some 5150 bindings and the mounting plate for the bindings have different holes than what the board has. ive been able to get 2 screws in on the opposite sides of the plate but every other hole wont line up. do i need to use a different plate or the one from the old bindings which are bigger but they are both the same size? any help would be very appreciated as im going to hit the mountains this weekend.

    yea i had this problem with technine bindings and a burton snowboard. you definatley want base plates that fit your board. but you probly wont get the right ones by this weekend if at all. i got really lucky because i bought some base plates off some kid in the lodge. you could try contacting the binding company or maybe even burton but you definatley dont want to ride with just 2 screws holding each binding....i guess it would be ok for just one day but its still risking it. good luck, its gonna be a pain in the A$$

    I had the same problem, each binding company usually has a baseplate made for burton snowboards, i think they call it a unidisk, anyways i just emailed technine and asked them for one and they sent it.. you could try your local shops first though

    yea i tried that but the only base plates the shop can order you are the only base plates from the company's warehouse, who only had base plates from the current year's models....

    yeah burton does this on purpose. normal baseplates won't fit their 3 hole boards, and burton baseplates won't fit into everyone elses bindings. they use bigger cog grooves. running two screws on each will be fine, just tighten them every few hours but i doubt they'll even get loose.

    My buddy rides with just the 2 screws in, it holds fine. You just may need to tighten them once or twice during the day.

    Get the problem fixed correctly. You should be able to get baseplates that work. You should have a minimum of 3 screws in each one evenly spaced. If you don't find what you need this weekend PM me I have a box full of binding parts I've collected over the years, I might have something that will fix correctly.

    Riding with 2 screws is a very bad idea. Have you ever seen what happens when a binding separates from a board when someone is flying down the mountain? Most likely you have not. I've been riding for a very long time and I've been through the evolution of boards, bindings and boot. In the early days there were various problems which caused binding to separate from the board, in numerous cases this ended up with severe knee, hip and leg injuries, some career ending. I watched my friend eat sh!t after his front binding inserts ripped out while making a toeside turn. It wasn't pretty.
