hey guys and welcome to the channel today I want to show you how you set up your ski bindings correctly and it's a fairly simple job but still it's really really important that everything set up right because otherwise it could be that the power transmission from the boot through the binding to the ski is not really good or the binding is just not safe because it won't release in the right way I'm going to show you how to do that all you need is a screwdriver and it's perfect if you have one like this then with the screwdriver is a little bit smaller it could be hard to turn the screws but and just check it out and you should be fine so on the usual Alpine binding or on this frame touring binding there are always three things you have to setup first of all it's the space between this plate and the upper part of the binding which basically means just how far this ski boot is from here to here then of course we have the length of the whole binding which has to be set correctly to the length of your ski boot and then of course you have to set the VI n value of your ski binding in the front and in the back in this video I won't talk about setting up the DI n value because it's a big part on its own but if you want to set up the DI n value then just click on the video right here because there I'll show you how you do it so if you have a pin tech binding for example like one from Doudna fit then this video is probably not perfect for you but if you want me to do the same video with a pin tech binding or touring binding then just go ahead and ask in the comments for it so there we go this is the marker tor f12 EPF so first of all we will start with this plate here so we'll just put the boot in press it down Wow now what you want to do is to check how much your ski boot can move here in the front and here it's at least two or three millimeters which is way way too much so if there's too much space in here of course you have to make it smaller with this particular binding this plate just slides up and down so we have to slide it up a bit but there are different bindings where this plate is fixed but you can move and this whole front part here and there's a really simple trick to set it up correctly just take a piece of paper and put it on the plate here then you can just step in with your ski boot and then you can just simply pull the paper out so if you can pull it out really easy like I just did then the space it's way too big the perfect setting would be that if you pull it out you can barely pull it out without ripping the paper so let me go ahead and sell paper again so in most bindings where this plate slides up and down you have a screw in the front where you can slide it up and down of course if you turn right it slides up if you turn left it slides down with the bindings where you can adjust this wrong piece there should be a screw somewhere on top here so I'll just go ahead and slide it up this should be perfect this setting so I got it perfect right now if it's too tight which means that your paper would rip then you just have to lower the plate a little bit and then just find this sweet spot so second of all we have to adjust the length here you can see that this binding is set up way too long for this wooden so before I put the ski boot in I'll just go ahead make it a bit shorter so this should be pretty much the same with every binding that you have there should be a screw somewhere in the bag where you can adjust the length of the binding and with this marker particularly it's this screw here usually if you turn clockwise it slides forward if you turn anti-clockwise then slides backwards so I'll just go ahead and slide forward a few clicks it doesn't have to click like this binding there other bindings where it's just without clicks so we step in the boot again and that looks much better but with this marker binding there is a really neat feature which is this screw here is not flush with the binding and to get the right pressure you just turn the screw until it is flush with the binding and if that's the case then your length is set up perfectly but of course on everybody has this feature so I'll show you how you can do it without it first of all open your binding then put your ski boot in right now there should be not that much space between the binding and the ski boot so if it's perfectly in place these parts should be just about to touch it and what we need is that the binding holds on to this edge here your ski binding is now set up correctly but there's still something to do you have to set up your di n value on the binding in the front end on the back and then the video right here I'll show you how to do so don't forget to watch that too so that's it for today's video I hope if you enjoyed it if you did so just give it a thumbs up if you have any questions then just go ahead and ask them in the comment section down below and of course there will be way more stuff coming up for example how to mount the binding on your ski at home or how to cut skins for touring and so on and so on so what we pleased if you could hit that subscribe button for me because there's a lot of awesome stuff coming up on this channel and I hope that we will see each other on the next video ciao

    Setting bindings yourself is the riskiest thing you could do.

    Forgot the most important part. Torque testing heel and toe release. If you care about your safety, leave this to your local ski shop.

    There are many things you can learn enough about by watching you tube videos that you can feel pretty confident to do correctly. Ski binding adjustment is not one of those. Take it to a qualified professional. This guy's advice is dangerous.

    If you don't know the difference between a Philips and Pozi drive, you have no business telling anyone how to set up ski bindings.

    MOST LOCAL SKI SHOPS DO THIS FOR FREE! This is not safe! As someone who has mounted thousands of bindings over years I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS!!!!! Go to a certified local ski shop and promote a local business. You are not saving a dime if you tear a ACL.

    For the AFD setting, I noticed in one example you were pushing down on the boot and others you weren't, which makes a difference in how easily you can pull the paper out. Which is correct, push the boot or leave it loose?

    The only thing I can ad is that most ski bindings I have seen the star shaped fasteners are posi-drive or philips. That screw driver he has could strip the fasteners as it appears to be a Reed and Prince (pointed and will bottom out in the hole) the first two mentioned are blunt so the star can engage better.
