Alpine Ski Binding Mounting Tap 12AB

(19 reviews) Write a Review

Product Overview

Some skis are made with a metal sheet inside, or have a hard insert in the core, these skis generally require you tap the screw holes prior to mounting bindings. This tap has a thread pitch that matches that of an Alpine ski binding screw. 

  • Using a tap handle allows a good grip on the tap and help insure that you thread it in straight.
  • Tap slowly, when you feel the tap touch the bottom of the hole back stop and back it out slowly.
  • When inserting screws be sure not to over tighten them to avoid stripping the hole.
  • Always defer to the ski or binding manufacturer recommendations.
  • Requires a #0-1/4" tap handle (sold separately).
  • Sold each.

    It does just what it's suppose to. I used it to mount up a pair of axl tele bindings and it has the proper threading.

    I used the tap for mounting an alpine-binding! It made a sharp, clear cut which gave the screw the best grip in the first two tuns. This lowers the risk of delaminating the ski. Nice tool!!

    The is a must have if you mount bindings on skis with metal. I use it with all the bindings I mount. The AB is for alpine. Tele bindings usually use a different tap.
