Exclamation what should i do with a board with stripped holes

Ok, so my old Riders Choice that i love and want to use or lend to my friends has stripped holes....like the holes that the screws from the bindings go in, those have stripped off. So when i try tightening my bindings on the screws just keep spinning. So that makes the board useless. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it or ever use it again. I was thinking to like cement the bindings in haha which is fine b/c i donít need those bindings. If thatís the only solution what should I use to cement them...??? PLEASE HELP I LOVE THE BOARD AND NEED HELP!!!

How many holes are stripped? Just move your bindings so that you do not use holes with stripped threads. Do not overtighten.

i tried that but 2 holes on each side are stripped so there is nowere to go ....actualy one has 3 stripped holes...the thing is i dont even know how i did it. i made sure never to over tighten. one day i took a jump and when i landed the hole binding came off and you can only amagine the yard sale that i left behind.........but i did what you told me to do and i guess it was to much tension and it stripped the other ones to0....

Sounds more like you have a spinning insert which there is no hope for the board is dead.

Nope because the insert itself is spinning inside the board. You'd have to cut the insert out from the base put a new T nut in ptex over it and then pray it would hold. Its just not worth it.

Call up Gnu, that sounds like something they'd take care of. I've heard awesome stories about Mervin replacing stuff, give it a shot.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
