Wakeboard Binding Screws Dumb Question

Recommended Posts

this may sound like a dumb question, but I have been using the same wakeboard for 15 years (at least).

I just bought a new to me Liquid Force Shane board from a member here (and it does look new, by the way). It included the Shane closed toe bindings (they look like knarly dude snowboard bindings!).

So my daughter and i will probably be swapping my old Hyperlite bindings with these bindings, depending on whose riding. Well this board has some "real" screws on it holding the Shane's in place. Can I use the old style nylon wing nut binding screws on this setup (they are the same thread size, checked that out already). Or do I have to use the screws that came with it, as they look a bit more heavy duty.

Sorry if its a dumb question, there are no shops around here. i think my hyperlite model was the first honeycomb twin tipped model made, way back (the old red and black board).

thanks,

John

I would think that you could use either, as long as they both tighten down enough without bottoming out in the screw holes. Man, 15 yrs? Sheeesh.

no do not use. even the bolts that come with new LF boots are not strong enough, go to hardware store get you four stainless steel 1/4 inch by 20(course thread) by 1in long bolts also get about 12 little brass washers. the 1 in bolts will be a little long , so use 2 or 3 brass washers on each bolt so they dont bottom out in the holes.
