1.1 This test method
defines procedures to determine agreement between a standard
apparatus for measuring the release moments of ski bindings and a
test device of unspecified design.
1.2 This test method
also covers procedures for checking agreement between individual
devices of identical but unspecified design, intended for
determining the release moments of ski bindings.
1.3 Values expressed
in newton meters, newtons, and centimeters are to be regarded as
