Threaded inserts for skis - For use with any of our Flat-head, Small-head or Low-head screws. The inserts require a drill bit depth of 9mm or 9.5mm minimum. Binding Freedom inserts are not compatible with standard alpine mounting screws. Sold in bulk packs of 25.
If you have any questions about installation feel free to reach out or read over our insert installation instructions.
Before installation - clean the inserts with a de-greaser and wipe clean. Any grease or oil left on the inserts from the machining process could interfere with the epoxy. Never use LOC-TITE, use Vibra-Tite offered here.

I get to be the "able bodied" skiier assisting some hard charging sit skiers here in Utah. The core group of guys are hard chargers who put more force on their numerous single skis than we ever will. Not one of countless inserts has pulled out in 4 seasons. +1.

I've mounted perhaps 250 inserts over the years, and the Binding Freedom ones are my inserts of choice.
I like the slotted head but prefer to start the installation with an M5 screw with double lock nuts, as I can control the insert so it goes in perpendicular to the ski surface.
I finish off the final turn (or two) with a ground, flat blade screwdriver (similar to the installation tool).

I have been putting inserts in all my skis for 3 years and will never go back. On some skis I have 2 binding patterns which allows me to swap out bindings depending on my objectives. I do the insert installation myself and have never had any issues with any of my bindings. Great product!

I am very happy with the inserts and the comp plus kits. Get the full kit and go for it.

These are currently the defacto inserts for mounting skis to do regular binding swaps

I have mounted telemark bindings on many skis using binding freedom inserts. Never a problem and I am able to move bindings around from ski to ski if needed. Not as convenient as having base plates but a good second choice.

This is a stellar product. Fast and helpful service. I've installed hundreds. These do two important things for me as a tele-smelly pinhead. First - It makes a really strong mount to anchor tele bindings, which produce much higher pull-out forces on screws than alpine or AT bindings. The machine screws are obviously strong, but the actual benefit is in the larger outside diameter of the insert, which distributes pullout forces over a greater surface area inside the ski, and hence reduces pullout pressure on the ski core. Second - I like to change bindings between skis. It confounds me that binding and ski manufacturers don't take the obvious step to use a standardized hole pattern (like our snowboard cousins). That would make everything stronger and more functional...Wishful thinking. My only complaint is that the inserts and installation tools would benefit from beefier driver notches. The teenie-tiny tabs and soft stainless steel on the installation tool are very vulnerable to slipping/bending/stripping. That doesn't effect quality once they're installed, but makes it easy to wreck your installation tool.

Have used these now for many ski mounts. Always consistent quality and quick shipping. I have used other inserts before, but prefer BF as my go to.

Super light skis like the Voile Hypervector benefit from these stainless inserts firmly epoxy'd in place so that the binding's screws are in steel rather than wood. Thread the holes for the inserts into the light wood core very carefully. I tore one hole out and had to fill with epoxy, cure and re-drill. That fix seems to have made the insert even stronger, but was too tedious to recommend!.
