So last year I built my first splitboard with a Nitro Pantera. The board turned out nice, I was pleased with my job. This year I want to get my wife out with me doing some mellow climbs around Tumalo and such. I bought a Malolo for her to split. I have been doing a ton of research to try and get as creative as possible with avoiding drilling through the board. I have seen a few different DIY's with the four hole permanent pattern that used quiverkiller inserts. Obviously there is going to be some issues with strength but does anyone think its possible to do a universal hole pattern with the inserts and hold a two hole voile adjustable puck? Unfortunately my wife has not ridden to Malolo and at times feels like her stance needs to be adjusted due to powder conditions. Im skeptical about splitting and setting her stance without some options. Are there other options to using the universal puck on a DIY board?

My concern would be that such inserts are intended for ski bindings with like 7-8+ screws per bindings, where as with a split there will be a grand total of 8 being used at one time between both bindings. Counter that though, with your wife looking to do some mellow riding & nothing crazy, I'd give it a shot. If they pull out, t-nut 'em and go back to the drawing board.

With the diy pucks and four screws you would be able to get away with quiver killers, universal pucks they will probably rip out. that said my next board will use homemade pucks that use two of the original iserts and quiver killers on the other end.

I've mentioned before that I've used these in tele skis with no problem... tele skis use 4 inserts and the torsional force these things went through were pretty high!
They are much easier to mount in skis due to the thicker core in the mounting area, with a snowboard you have to grind away some of the insert and be extra careful not to strip out the threads put in with the tap. I'm going to test some out in the touring bracket first, then move on to Universal mounts, i'll let you guys know if I broke a leg or not!

With quiver killers found it better not tapping it, just wind it strait in with alot of downwards pressure. With soft wood core it easily strips when i was tapping it before putting the inserts in.

Good to know Chris, did you do any sort of pre drilling at all?

Talked to the owner of slidewright.com today for a good half hour. He had never addressed the inserts on splitboards but was really stoked to hear about it. Set up some insert/installation tool packages after I chatted with him.

Yeah pre drill to the size the recommend. Better still try taping some and not tapping some on a test board or the heel raisers. And see what works better. You dont want the insert to pry up any layers of wood/glass as you wind it in, hence the tapping or pushing down hard when installing the insert.

Ripped my QVK inserts clear out of the board.
Only really recommend them on the touring plate and risers.
Ok if she is really mellow rider.
Second that not to use tapper. Just pre-drill.

I'm guessing you used them with the adjustable pucks (2 per puck)? Or stationary pucks?

I'm not sure they get enough bite in a snowboard... it seems to me, without supplementing with a tnut here and there, it's just a matter of time before they tear out. Or if you want to start epowelding gear to the board, you can definitely squeeze some more life out of them. But doing that seems like it would defeat the only real purpose of using quiver killers over regular binding screws - easy removal and replacement of hardware. They'll work wonders on hardwoods, but softwood (especially without reinforcement and deep penetration - yikes) is really playing your odds.

For permanent installs, If you are experimenting, try this on a few holes. drill the hole for your threaded insert or ski screw, tap it or not. I like to tap the hole thinking that it allows the epoxy to harden the wood where the screw pitch rests. Then take a 1/16 bit and starting about 1/8 inch into the hole, drill two 45 degree angled holes about 1/4 out from the hole for the screw or insert.
Then take some fiberglass or carbon fiber and cut a bunch up into 1/16" or smaller shards. Saturate a pile of these with good epoxy resin, then stuff this resin and fiber mix into the screw holes until it is packed and try to tuck some of it into the tiny holes that you drilled. Brush your screws with a wire brush for a good bonding surface.

The idea is to 1. harden up the soft wood where the screw holds on to the wood and 2. to bond the screw with a larger, strong and irregularly shaped chunk of epoxy and composite that wont rotate and wont pull out straight.

Drill out two additional holes in each of your touring brackets so you mount one with 5 screws instead of 3. Three screws are just not enough for a touring bracket, too much stomping when you are setting a trail in a crust. T-nut it if you are going to ski your split much.
