A well known but thankfully uncommon problem with pre 2007 Fritschi Diamir bindings is the possibility of the touring latch coming undone while you’re skiing downhill. Here is blog reader Craig Woodard’s solution. He fabricated a pair of pins from 5/16 inch nylon stock, added a split ring, and it looks good for backcountry skiing. Bear in mind that current Fritschi bindings have solved this problem by including an ingenious mechanism, which I’ve detailed here.
My only concern with Craig’s mod is that it might limit the sliding action of the heel clamp that compensates for ski flex. What do you blog readers think?
