How to Take the Bindings Off of Skis

By Sarah Schreiber

Bindings are one of the most important parts of skis, providing a way for boots to clip into place, securing the skis to the wearer. The bindings are personalized to the skier, sized to fit their specific boot and adjusted based on the person's weight. If you're giving an old pair of skis away or replacing old bindings, removal is necessary.

Lay the skis on the ground so you have easy access to the binding. Locate the back cover on the binding, which serves as protection for the back binding screws. Pry it open with a flathead screwdriver.

Unscrew the binding screws with a Phillips screwdriver. Once removed, the back portion of the binding will come off after pulling upward.

Locate the front cover of the binding and pry off with a flathead screwdriver. Remove the screws using a Phillips. Pull up after removing all the screws to finish the binding removal. Repeat the process on the other ski.
