    There is a forward pressure thread with photos of every binding and how to set it...

    IME the manual that comes with the binding, if there is one, doesn't say anything about adjusting them, the theory being that only a certified shop should be doing that. To do your own adjustments, beyond DIN, you will likely need the shop manual, which you may or may not find online.
    The advantage of having a shop do it is that they can test the release and make sure the binding is within specs. The advantage of doing it yourself is that you do not have to follow the chart exactly while a shop has to.. If you gain 1# from 174 to 175 (and is that clothes on or off?) does it make sense that you suddenly go up 1 1/2 steps? Release values can also depend on skier style, kind of terrain and snow, kind of ski (I had a bad injury when a 117mm ski released on steep ice, which I'm sure was due at least in part to the width of the ski putting more stress on the binding where a narrower ski might have not released at the same setting. In theory.)
