Sunday while testing new gear, I slipped and fell skinning a steep section. When I got up I found that my LT pin had disengaged the outer mount and the bent pin was now holding the binding to the touring bracket.
I'm 90% sure I had the pins properly tucked away when I started the tour. Has anyone else depinned in similar circumstances?

My pins haven't slipped all the way out yet, but they are getting looser I have noticed. I now make sure the bent end of the pin is completely folded onto the baseplate, and step on it before buckling in. That way it can't slide out.
