Re: Hello from chrisnbush in Richmond NH
If you tear it apart (1/2 hour) and find the stud is stripped out in the case, then you could buy a 8mm (check your size)helicoil and drill it out with a hand drill and insert the helicoil. (1 hour) use a 8mm (check your size)allthread to replace the stud and you are back in business. Keep everything "eat off it" clean before re-assembly.
If the brace is working now, and you are happy and servicable, more power to you...picture?
