Verified Buyer Reviewed by bufo from Rochester, NY on Tuesday, January 29, 2013The NIS system is a terrific advancement in ski binding technology. The printed instructions have not yet caught up! Yes, you slide the bindings onto the NIS plate but the adjustment (sliding the binding back and forth on the plate) is done with the NIS key included with the bindings. There are two tabs on the binding with rectangular slots in them that fit the key. Depending on which direction you want the binding to slide, use the key to pry up the tab and carefully push the binding along the binding plate. You can mount these bindings yourself but you may need someone to hold the ski in place as you force the binding along the track. I found a very small groove across the NI plate denoting the balance point so I lined up the toe pin clamp on the binding with this groove. Easy adjustments can occur if this balance point is not good for you.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by DB from Boston on Tuesday, January 1, 2013The box the bindings were packaged in was a little beat up, but everything was there (bindings and tool). The bindings are simple to install, I just slid them on to the NIS plate of my skis. The only difficulty was that the fit was pretty tight, so it took some effort to slide them into place. The bindings work without issue.
Reviewed by Aaron B from New Hampshire on Tuesday, January 1, 2013When buying a cross country ski setup, the bindings and the boots must be of the same compatibility (NNN is not the same as BC NNN, for example) so be sure your boots and bindings are compatible before ordering. I ordered these bindings in conjunction with the Alpina T20 Plus NNN boots, and NIS plate Rossignol X-Tour Escape Classic Skis; the boots and bindings must match format, and the bindings and skis must also match. In this case, the skis and bindings both as NIS-plate compatible, which is independent of the boot/binding format.
NIS-plate means that the skis have a ratchet-type plate installed on it, and the bindings just snap into it. These bindings were installed in about 40 min or so, and they include the tool needed to get them clicked in (make sure you check where your heel falls before putting in the heel plate).
Boots click into them easily, though they require some body weight on the pole to release them. Not a fault, as they shouldn't release the boots too easily, but the do need some effort.
Overall, love how easy they are to install on NIS plate skis, and they perform very well.

“What boots are these bindings compatible with? I see that it says NNN, but not NNN BC. Does that mean NNN Classic boots will work?”
The bindings will fit only NNN boots (NNN Classic), the bindings are not compatible with NNN BC (NNN Back Country) boots.
“Out of the 5 positions how will I know where to start?,What position works best for what conditions? should I start with it in the forward position, or when would I want it in the Back Position, Thanks”
Start with the toe bar (attachment point) directly over the balance point of the skis, Take a magic marker and balance the skis on a pen or pencil and then mark on the top of the side of ski where that balance point is. If you are a classic skier with a good kick you may prefer the ski one click behind the balance point. If you are are mounting on a skate ski you may prefer the ski to be one click in front of the balance point. It takes no more than 10 minutes to mount these bindings on an NIS plate and no more than 2 minutes to adjust them in any direction using the provided key.
