      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Ski binding screwdriver

Recommended Posts

I was looking for screwdrivers with replaceable heads and they all quite big and bulky in the hardware store. My multi-tool has screwdrivers, but the heads are a little too small and the tool's shape makes the screws difficult to access.

 

For the record, I have a pair of Plum Guide bindings, and Dynafit Speeds. I've found this tool which might work, but I'm not sure.

I have a Black Diamond version of that tool which is nice and compact for riding in the pack. I added a torx tipped bit for the mounting screws on my dynafits and usually carry it all in a small zip-lock bag because I bring more bits than will fit into the handle.

 

Hope that helps.

That Brooks range tool does look really nice. Too bad they had troubles with it. I have a leatherman and apparently you can get a 1/4 inch extension for their proprietary bit driver, so I might try that.

I've been carrying that little green Brooks Range doodad you linked for the past few years and it's been great. I've put together G3 and dynafit binders in the field with it, no problems. The price was right at $7 or so off of BC.com.

I have a the brooks range leatherman like multi tool. It is a great idea but the execution turned out pretty flimsy. I think they discontinued it after one year and said they hoped to find a better manufacture so hopefully it will make a return someday.

 

I think the leatherman plus the bits you need approach would be the way to go though at some point i'd like to figure out a lighter option...

I'd second the leatherman & bits idea. Leatherman's removable bit driver is ridiculously expensive, something like $15, but works quite well as a binding tool. It provides about 2-3 inches of clearance without an extension, which I've found to be enough for dynafits and fritschis.

 

The extension comes with a few of leatherman's ridiculous "bits", but don't waste any more money on them. Just get a set of standard posidrive and torx bits for your bindings.

The little torx that comes with AVID disc brakes fits the dynafit bindings. Bug your local bike shop.
