HELP! Baron stuck in ski mode.
Last week I put inserts into a couple pairs of skis so that I can swap my barons back and forth.
Today I screwed the bindings into the inserts in my new-to-me 'sploders, which appeared to go just fine. I used a drop of thread locker on the screws jondrums sells on his site, screwed them in, and clamped the bindings down into ski mode all without a hitch..
Problem is, now one if the bindings won't go back into walk mode, making it useless for touring and a hostage on the ski!
The lever cones up just past vertical and the binding moves back enough to expose the two front screws, but then it stops. It seems to be catching on something under the toe piece, so my thought is that I must have either not tightened one of the screws enough, or put one of the inserts in just crooked enough that the edge of the screws head is sticking up a bit. I don't know what else it could be catching on, gotta be a screw right?
I pushed the lever fairly hard but didn't want to go so far that I break something.. so what should I do? I can't take the bindings off or address the screw issue without going into walk mode, but I can't get there. I don't remember any extra resistance when I clamped them down after the mount, but they won't go back.

Not a clue myself, but have you checked out the care and feeding thread here? There were actual smart people posting there, not me...The blues has always been about taking your problems and turning them into something you can dance to, drink to and fuck to.
We're certainly not a blues band in any kind of purest sense, but to me Rock and Roll has always had it's roots in that tradition.

I'm not sure if this will help, but have someone flex the ski while you try to flip/fuss with the lever.The coefficent of desireability is inversly proportionate to the degree of availability.

If this doesn't work, a lot of the models of duke/barons have retaining rings on the toe pivot. You can take out the pivot and then you'll be able to get access to the screw heads.DynaDuke, SollyFit, DynaLook, Inserts, and Tools
