Here is a simple computer rendering of the lock down.

Still testing materials and sizing. The finished product looks similar to this though. I'll have a couple sets ready over the weekend.

Update...I have 4 pairs ready to ship for anyone interested. Not sure how long it'll be before I can make some more. Price is $40/pair (free shipping in the US). I'll take the first 4 orders for those who email me at kenboy875@yahoo.com. These will work with Triads, Sparks, Lightrails, and all Voile sliders. I haven't tried these with anything but the single stage Voile climbing wires so if the dual risers are wider than they may not fit. Anybody out there confirm if there is a width difference? Sorry about the price up front, but one ups are always more costly to manufacture. Sorry for the blurry pics.

slide them in from the back with or without boots in the bindings
Image

slide them forward of the climbing wire (halfway or so)
Image

place the binding flat on the board and slide it back under the climbing wire to engage
Image

closer look

Will the binding release with enough force (aka the heel riser)? What with wings? Such a simple and great design Rughty. Way to go! :thumbsup:

Cool design, one question.
Won't the wings sticking out past the edge of the board impede your ability to traverse on a steep side hill?

The wings stick up near the base of the bindings. The amount they are above the board is far enough to make up for the minimal amount they stick out over the edge. Steep traverses are perfect for this system.

Slick. How is changing over while still strapped in? Easy enough?

Is there enough clearance there to work with sparks?

change overs are easy on the fly. just take them out of your pocket or wherever you store them, lean forward and slide them in from the rear. These fit from behind on the wider tabbed Voile slider stops so I imagine they would work fine on all Sparks.

sparks (new burner blaze) dont have a center stop, they have tabs on the sides that would interfere. cutting the tabs and retrofitting a center stop would not be hard.

That's good to know. Thanks.

Of course you could keep it stock and take the binding off if you didn't want to modify it or just install it before you start touring and slide it all the way forward if you know you will need it at some point along the way then slide it back to lock it down (of course this adds a little weight on your feet to touring, but at least it's centered weight and not swing weight). Lots of options out there with this setup and I'm sure people will have their preference either way. All lock downs are now gone. Seeing as those went so fast, I am looking into getting a run made up quicker than anticipated. I'll keep you guys up to date.
