Mounting snowboard bindings on to your snowboard deck is very easy and a great way to understand how to adjust and tweak your own setup on or off the hill.
Shown in pictures are Rome 390 but the process is the same for all bindings

Step 1: Admire You New Bindings and Arrange
Here is were you need to get you board and bindings ready for mounting. Just make sure there is no dirt or debris in the mounting location
Step 2: Place and Mount the Bindings
Here is where you need to place the bindings on the board. Set the correct angle. 15 deg leading foot and 0 back foot. is a good starting point for beginners. I like a little more angle. Feel free to change the angle and experiment when riding.
Also make sure not to make the stance to narrow when riding. This will greatly effect your riding. The stance of your legs should be slightly wider than your shoulders.
Set the bindings in the middle to start.
A little loctite on the screws wont hurt. Use blue not red.
Step 3: Set the High Back
Here you need to put some forward lean into your high back. You will also find the perfect amount from experimentation while riding.
You can see how i moved the high back tab downwards
Step 4: Done!
The fun part once you know how to setup your bindings is experimenting with different arrangements.
My bindings as well as many other have more adjustments to play with. But i just outlined the basics found in almost every snowboard binding.
