    Significance and Use

    4.1 The purpose of this practice is to aid in providing the end user with an appropriately functioning system with appropriate release torque setting(s).

    4.2 The definitions and tolerances defined in this practice do not necessarily apply to procedures incorporating an inspection interval or schedule, in which such procedures are specified by the binding manufacturer. This practice is not intended to be a method for evaluating equipment design.

    Note 2: Refer to Practice F1064 for definitions and tolerances pertaining to the evaluation of equipment once in use.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice provides procedures for inspection and adjustment of alpine ski/binding/boot systems.

    1.2 This practice should be followed for systems, whether newly mounted or previously mounted, when work is performed on the system that may affect its release function, unless otherwise specified by the binding manufacturer in non-rental applications.

    1.3 Nonapplicability of this function and release inspection practice to rental shop operations is based upon the existence of applicable ASTM practices.

    Note 1: Refer to Practice F1064 for equivalent procedures and tolerances for complete and incomplete rental systems.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
