    Anyone have suggestions for repairing a stripped insert?

    You could try to re-tap it with a M6 tap to clean it up. I keep one handy, because of cross-threaded inserts and over-drilled inserts from the factory.

    If its too far gone you could try a helicoil to a larger screw and thread. Take it to a good ski shop and ask them.

    You may think about just epoxying it; depending if you need to ever unscrew it, (EG: touring or heels)

    There isnt enough meat in an insert for a helicoil, you would have nothing left after you drilled it unfortunately. This is oddball but you could possible get an M7x1.0 tap and try converting it to M7 (may or may not work lol)

    Would a Quiver Killer work?

    This was more what I was suggesting. Tap it to the next larger size.

    Don’t know if QK’s will work, because you will have to drill out the existing insert.

    Have you thought about just drilling it out and t-nut’ing it?

    You really should ask a good ski shop what they can do.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Its one of the climbinb wire inserts and I normally swap between hb and sb setus so epoxy is out. Oh and its a borrowed prototype 😳 (sorry Al). Think Ill check with a buddies shop.

    So you could use a sparks adapter for the climbing heel and add in a t-nut maybe a heel coil (M6) or quiver Killer (M5) a in a new hole?

    Would add a reverse T-Nut through the top sheet work?
