      Or for extra security just stretch it back over the heel bale and snap it shut.

          With my size boot just enough room for ski crampon attachment also Sweet!
          Crampon attachments are inverted 30mm M 6 screws and M6 wingnuts. Crampons B and D 135 mm wide drilled with holes 4 cm apart. Crampons are optional. Easy alternative are Skeats strap on mini crampons

            Boot comparability issue with heel lifter
            I was testing my regular downhill boot with the Spiltboard heel and it doesn't work because the lift plate is higher than the receptor heel piece . My AT boot has an arched foot sole which allows the heel elevator to fit. Pictures follow. I think there is another heel plate that will work. I will explain in another post below.

                The heel lifter I think that will work has an 8mm plate and comes packaged with spring tension cables from Voile . You. can also special order the plate itself . Then you need the 58mm climbing wire also . I think this heel lifter should work with all boots . 8mm is about the height of the receptor heel plate. and is lower then the heel plate I am using in the above pictures. I have bought this new heel plate and will test it out when it comes in to make sure it works with all boots. Attachment should be the same with a M6 screw (shorter, I will determine the length) and a M6 flange nut , This heel lifter is meant to be drilled into a ski and the holes in the plastic part may need to be enlarged a bit to fit the M6 screw but I will work this out as soon as I get the part in .

                  The heel elevator that comes bundled with the Voile spring tension cable for 30 dollars( 60 dollars for the pair you will need) and the 58 mm climbing wires for 10 bucks and a pair of 20 cm Voile straps is all you need to complete this receptor mod ,super inexpensive for a competent touring binding adaptation. No drilling and no custom work!
                  The packaged heel elevator just bolts into the receptor base with 25 mm M6 x1.0 machine screws into M6 Flange nuts placed under the middle slot in the receptor plate. The heel elevator pad is perfectly flush with the Receptor heel plate like it was custom made. Sweet!!
                  Picture in next post.

                      Nice one! Hmm, that's a reasonable option for mounting brakes to Receptors, maybe. I'd have to look at some aftermarket brakes to see. I've wanted to do that for a while so that I can ditch the leashes (also would come in handy for any touring mod with releasable bindings).

                        Here is a report testing the binding in the backcountry :
                        https://forums.skiboardsonline.com/f...ouring-binding
                        I do recommend keeping the side tension cable very tight. It is best to just remove the cable when going downhill rather then leaving it attached.
                        This is easy to do. Transitions are simple ,just remove voile strap, unsnap front lever, remove cables and then just snap back in as usual while leaving the skins attached to prevent the skiboard from moving around . Then skins are easily removed while you are snapped in.

                          Here is a shopping list and links for the Receptor touring modification . All easily purchased and used with your Receptor binding and skiboard with no drilling or custom modifications .
                          In this picture I show the completed touring modification. The crampon and crampon receiver in front of the toe is not necessary for most applications and a simple Skeats strap on mini crampon will usually be sufficient if crampons are needed.

                          Understand that backcountry skiboarding is a high risk activity and I recommend you take avalanche courses , purchase additional avalanche gear such as beacons , shovels and probes and go with experienced backcountry riders. Also this a personal modification that you choose to use on your skiboards accepting all risks inherent with equipment failure and backcountry risks . This is not a manufacture recommended use of your binding or these binding parts and is only a binding modification I have done myself for my own use and am sharing with the skiboard public for their own education as to possible personal ways of modifying their bindings for backcountry use.
