LF Boots on other Boards
Hey guys, did some searching and I couldn't find the exact answer I needed so here's an easy one that you can help me out with.

What's the issue with putting Liquidforce Boots on other brand boards? Is it simply that the bolts are longer? So if I purchase LF boot and put it on a cwb can I just get some washers to make it fit?

Also anyone got any feedback on the '13 Ultras or Bobs? Looking to get back into the OT game.

So after talking to a shop buddy of mine, I think he may have answered my question.

"In 2012 LF changed everything to m6 hardware. It's a different size bolt with a different thread... ...You need to just use the older hardware. It's called 1/4:20 (one quarter twenty). I believe those numbers are the size of it. You can get them at Home Depot/Lowes/etc. Just make sure the 1/4:20 bolts are the right length and you're golden... ... I'm pretty sure CWB switched to m6 also for 2013. that was the only company that I never double checked though..."

Anyone try this?

I use LF Vantage boots and have put them on many different boards. The SS M6 hardware is easily obtained at Home Depot.

Everyone switched to M6 hardware in 2013, LF did it in 2012. Also I believe in 2008(?) everyone switched from a 8" hole pattern to a 6" on their boards so if you had 2012 bindings and wanted to put them all the way out on a 2007 board you would need spacers.
