Ok...So I have been contemplating on how to break out on this new project I have been working on the last few months and figured this is as good a place as any. All I can say is this system is nothing like Karakorams solution.

I can't post pics up yet or describe the functionality, but who hear would be interested in a heel lock down which is compatible with Triad, Rughty Conversions, All Sparks, Voile Lightrails, and All Voile slider plate mounted bindings?

I am curious to see your design.

Has any one consider designing something like the heel/lift unit from an old RAMER R binding?

Because a splitboard is so wide Instead of turning the heel-unit 180 degrees to engage the heel-lift or heel-lock. One could turn it ninety degrees to select heel lift or lock down.

I would certainly be interested, as long as it it doesn't cost to much. :thumbsup:

I can't see your pic,, but your description seems far too complicated to be the same as what I have done. Price would be really cheap...

I just put a nail under the rear climbing bar of my g3 heel and on top of the baseplate of my binding
