How to remove Salomon SNS Profil binding?
 
I have a set of skis with the Salomon SNS Profil manual bindings on
them. Skate model.

What's a good way to remove them?

I see what looks like a plug at the rear of the heel plate but they're
not easily removed. I can keep trying.

I've removed the rubber bumpers. The plastic "S" snap-cover in the
front-center of the binding, over the front-center screw, doesn't seem
to want to come off. Do I just work a screwdriver under the front edge
somehow?

How do I expose the 2 side-screws? I don't see how to release the
"bail" so that it can flip out of the way.

Help? Links?

Thanks, JP

Jeff,
I've removed tons of these bindings. It really doesn't take rocket
science. Most of the time I can get my Swiss Army knife to remove the
plug in the back. Hold it vertically and run it around the plug as you
work it up. I have also used a real small drill bit and drilled a hole
in it and they ride up the drill bit. The S cap in the front comes up
really easy with the edge of my Swiss Army knife. Get the blade under
it and pry up. Than I take my knife and work it from the back of the
binding plate to the front. Be careful on this move with the knife.
Just get the knife under the plate and work free the glue tape. Don't
pry up but move the knife along. This works every time. Hard to
beleive you've never taken one of these off after all the knowlege and
experience you have.

Snap off the plastic thing, and you will see the main screw.

Note that Solmon screws are not phillips, even though they look like a
regular cross, and they are made of hardenned steal. Cheapo
screwdriviers almost definitely will get stripped (if your ski shop
mounted the bindgins faithfully). I would get a badass screwdriver, or
better yet, get a specialized Salomon screwdriver

I believe that's a pozi-drive screw head you're referring to;...maybe a
#3...if the screws are sealed with epoxy, warming them will soften the
epoxy's bond.

Where do you find a posidrive? I looked around a few months ago and
failed.

Alpine ski shops often sell them. And a few other places -- here's an
example

Lot easier to find when spelled pozidrive. For example,

Maybe not Homer's depot, but a good hardware store, or tool supply house
will at least have bits; a good addition to one's wax box. I don't recall
seeing a binding screw that wasn't driven by a #3 pozidrive/posidrive.
