This is a great tool for garage ski techs and pros alike. Once you invest in the JigaRex mounting jig the world is your oyster, well the binding mounting world anyway. Simply buy the relatively inexpensive Binding Plates as you need them, no need to purchase a whole new jig every time you change bindings! Clear up clutter in your shop, gone are the days of a bazillion languishing binding jigs. Say goodbye to paper templates, scotchtape and frustration. If you have a group of ski buddies, or a team, this is a great group purchase.
- Jaws open from 60mm to 185mm wide.
- The JigaRex does not include mounting plates, you'll need to choose the appropriate plates for the bindings you're mounting and add them to your cart.
- If ordering internationally please contact us for shipping cost, It will cost more to ship than indicated at checkout.
If you use the JigaRex™, as with any tool, it is your responsibility to ensure the quality and safety of work you do, as well as the safety of the bindings.
Tips for use:
- Place plates on the jig body and adjust to the length of the boot.
- There is a center line cut out into the body of the jig, this is boot center, double check that the center line of the jig lines up with the centerline on your boot. If it does not then default to the line on your boot, we find 99% of the time the two line up.
- Align the boot center line of the jig with the center line of your ski (should be clearly marked).
- Make sure the jig is sitting flat on the ski and that the jaws are clamped snuggly (NOT OVERLY TIGHT) and that there is no play in the jig in relation to the ski. Please note if the clamps are overly tightened the teeth can strip causing mis-alignment.
- If it is your first time you can use an old ski or a 2x4 to do a practice mount, that way you will get a good idea of what to expect.

It is an ok jig and faster than paper templates. Whoever designed it could have done a better job at its centering ability. The plastic gears can get off track. A few skis mounted perfect. When I noticed one was off center. I was lucky I could fix with drilling larger holes and use of helicoils. From then on, I marked center marks on the Jigarex ends and when I use it, I put a strip of blue tape on the skis and draw a centerline. That way I can ensure alignment is correct. Without doing that, there is a chance you will end up with an off-center binding and need to re-mount.
First used to mount a Look binding on a Volkl, and it worked great. Though the fit of the plates was a little iffy at first. Had to use a vise to press fit the plates flat to the pegs on the jig. Other than that small hiccup, the jig worked great. Boot fits perfect. Am happy with it. Will acquire other plates in the future.
The legs came misaligned, so you could never get a true center.
Do not buy this if you’re looking to accurately mount bindings! The jig has play in it which is horrible for mounting touring bindings. When drilling on the ski the jig moves around, messing up whole patterns. The jig is a great concept, the price doesn’t warrant what you get.
I found the jig spot on as far as boot center . The plastic handles that are used to clamp the jig to the ski could be better 1 snapped rite away. Not sure if theres a replacement part. It beats using templates by a long shot.I believe some of the parts could be made more durable.
Was hoping this was be all end all for mounting bindings. Not so, the jig moves when you drill (especially metal skis) so you need to duct tape the jig to the ski. Shouldn't need to do this on a $300 tool. Too much room for slippage. If you want an accurate mount, you're still better off spending the extra time to use templates. That way you can put the ski on a flat bench and hole punch before drilling. Also, the cost is too high for what it is, especially since each template is $40, if you have a lot of different bindings, it adds up quick.
Did exactly what it's supposed to do. Simple and fast.
