Default Re: Stripped mounting stud socket

A thread repair, heli-coil, is the only way out of your dilemma. Don't listen to the advice that you'll surely get to use epoxy (glue) to fix stripped threads. It won't work.

You might get away with running a 1/4 X 20 tap into the hole and using a 1/4X 20 stud or better yet an Allen head cap screw in place of the original fastener.
