Having just bought my first pair of skis, I am unsure how to best stack them in the default side-by-side position in which they are alligned at the tip and at the tail ends. I thought the bindings' stoppers would intertwine and protrude into the other one enough so the skis are flush, tips aligned. But instead, I can only get them to look something like this:
They don't sit any cozier if I reverse which ski "mounts" the other. Also, I can slightly force one of the skis further, but there is no "click" that would indicate the black levers are secured to one another (as I expected).
I've never had this problem with rented skis before. The way they fit into each other now, it just means they often break loose during transport.
Might the ski shop have misaligned/badly fitted the bindings, or am I just too inexperienced with equipment to know how to properly align my skis? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
