Doesn't seem to be any additional stiffness on the tech toe when removing. Dry runs of clicking boots into both the touring and alpine modes and releasing seem to operate totally normal. At this point it doesn't seem like a big deal to me, but since I'm new to these things, just wondering if there may be some unforseen issue that could arise?

    It'll be fine. Slight wear and rear will smoothen it. If not, and it's annoying enough you can remove the front piece and remount in the same holes pr instructions given earlier in the thread

    Any tips or tricks for keeping the fooking brakes locked when touring??? Holy hell they must have popped out like 80 times today. Seemed to happen less when I snapped the dildo "up"...

    Other than that pretty clean for a first try today! So nice to drop in on actual bindings \m/

    There is a lip/notch on the CAST brake retainer. If that notch doesn't line up with with the metal step on the underside of the Pivot brake, then the two will not interface and your brake will keep popping up. The dildo of the heel piece has nothing to do with it.

    You likely did not lined up the 2-screw CAST brake retainer / heel lift assembly correctly on install. It's okay, I've made this mistake in the past... and obviously remounting is not an option. To fix this, I took a dremel and made the gap between them metal step on the Pivot brake a bit bigger so that the CAST lip fully connects.

    Alternatively, buy a ski strap. Best of luck and happy dremel'ing.

    I always carry the rubber band that came with mine for times when the brake retainer might get a little tweaked in the field. I use it to keep the toe pieces together in my pack. Not sure current production comes with a band, but a Voile strap or similar would work.

    I cranked down the the star bolts that connect the brake lock to the heel block, so now the whole mechanism is much, much stiffer than it was. Hopefully this additional force is enough to overcome the tendency for the brakes to release.

    if its working properly it's difficult to disengage. sounds like your shop fucked up

    Got my Cast setup on a pair of ON3P Wren 108s. Loving it so far!
