    @ral - sorry I wasn't more clear on that -

    A bail is the part that holds a binding, this is more a cross country term than anything. So I refer to the release as the heel bail from time to time.

    I've played with those screws a bit. I'm unclear on the purpose, for instance, Silvretta bindings are intended to hold the heel laterally as well as vertically, and if you have an antiskid pad under the heel (which reflex supplies, or velcro like FM does it) then where is the boot going if it is set up properly?

    Silvretta does it on their actual binding. http://www.wildsnow.com/backcountry-ski-museum/silvretta-404-backcountry-skiing/404-vegas-release.wmv

    @BraceMaker, plastic is better that steel (assume you are talking about the pre 404 all steel unit). Antiskid does not work too well, and gets worn out pretty quickly. This is why they replaced it with the blocks. Screws work well. Also, the blocks allow to fine tune the Silvretta pressure (two holes where to attach the unit to choose from).
