How to Mount Burton Bindings

Save

Burton bindings require slightly different mounting than most other bindings. Rather than the 4-screw mounting of traditional bindings, Burton's use a 3-screw system designed for use with Burton boards. Here's a look at how to mount them.

Things You'll Need

  • Burton bindings with mounting screws
  • Burton Snowboard (or adaptive mounting disk)
  • Large Phillips head screwdriver

Burton 3-screw bindings

  • Determine stance (left or right foot forward). Have someone give you a gentle push from behind, while you stand with both feet together. The foot that you fall on is your front foot.

  • Determine stance width (how far apart your feet will be). Generally, width is about shoulder width or a little wider. Test out different widths and determine which is most comfortable. Also determine if you want your bindings centered on the board or pushed toward the back for powder riding.

  • Clean the board off around the binding mountings.

  • Determine the stance angle that you'd like to use and line up each mounting plate accordingly. Use your boot to ensure that the boot will be squarely on the board without hanging off.

  • Use a Phillips head screwdriver to insert all three screws into the snowboard, securing each binding where you want it.

Buron EST/The Channel

  • Make sure that these bindings are compatible with your board. Burton EST bindings are only compatible with Burton snowboards featuring Channel mounting. Obviously, this is something that the shop should have told you before purchasing your bindings and you should have purchased the proper board. Once mounted, the Channel allows you to easily slide bindings back and forth, making adjustments much quicker and easier than traditional- mounted bindings.

  • Determine stance direction, width and angle as above. To mount EST bindings, each binding has two corresponding screws and bolts.

  • Pull out the plastic plugs on the snowboard, in each mounting channel.

  • Put two bolts in each channel. Put plugs back in.

  • Drop the tab, protruding on the binding's bottom, into the channel on the snowboard. Make sure that it is fit snugly in the channel. Once it is in, you can easily turn the binding to set your stance angle.

  • Secure each screw through the outside holes on each binding into the bolts in each channel (two screws/bolts for each binding). Make sure that each binding is secured tightly.

  • Adjust as needed. Once the EST binding has been secured, simply loosen the two screws on each binding and slide back and forth to change centering or rotate to change angle. No full remounting is necessary.

Tips & Warnings

  • Burton bindings use the three-screw system. Consider this when you are shopping for boards and bindings, as most bindings and boards use a four-screw system. Burton bindings may require purchase of a separate four-screw mounting disk that is compatible with more popular four-screw snowboard construction.
