We've tooled up our own custom M5 screws specifically made for mounting ski bindings to swap plates or inserts. The head is tapered and fits like a flathead screw, but with a smaller diameter head so that they fit bindings which require a smaller diameter clearance. The underside of the head has locking serrations to help ensure that the screw doesn't back out over time. High quality stainless steel. For use with a Pozi #3 phillips head screwdriver.
It is very important to maximize the number of threads engaged in an insert or a swap plate, so be sure to measure carefully. Inserts can accommodate from 3mm min to 6mm max of thread engagement. We like to target 4mm of thread engagement. Do not exceed the min/max numbers for any reason - you will not get a secure mount. These screws fit exactly like allen head flatheads in terms of length.
If screw head diameters need to be ground down specify on your order how many and which lengths in the note section and we will do it for you.

Major players in the ski industry should adopt this system so you can swap a pair of bindings between multiple skis. Definitely more bomber connection then tradition screws and works great!

I have installed Binding Freedom inserts in 12 pairs of skis in the last 4 years, and have nothing but good things to say about them. Swapping bindings is easy for most bindings, and the stay on top of patterns for new equipment. The guys that design this stuff answer my questions directly and honestly. I could not be happier with them and what they do.

I needed screws for a binding with small heads so I'm going to have to grind the heads down.
