How wide is too wide for ski brakes?

How to clamp the FKS/pivot brake arms?
Unlike a lot of bindings the FKS/Pivot brake arms are not one continuous metal bar from one side to the other, instead they are two separate arms that meet in the middle under the AFD/heel plate. So you’ll need to clamp and bend each one separately on each side to avoid damaging the AFD/heel plate assembly or risk ripping one of the arms out of it.
How does the pivot plate of the binding work?
The pivot plate of the binding has some tolerance for movement designed into it, and so as that pressure is increased the pivot plate slides backwards slightly relative to the rest of the binding, therefore the back of the pivot plate (where the black plastic is attached) presses backwards against the white tab moving it backwards too.
What does the black plastic plate on the pivot plate do?
To the right is a black plastic plate – this serves as the bearing in the pivot and it is this that the pivot plate slides against.
