Stripped out insert binding removal
Looking for some help as I have a insert that is stripped out with the binding attached and don't have the slightest clue on how to remove the binding to fix the insert. Any help is greatly appreciated.

For give my ignorance but how can the insert be stripped and the screw still attached?
I thought stripped would mean, no thread left and therefore the screw woudl just fall out......
If you've rung it then the insert is finished, you could re tap it but I would not risk it.
Use a hammer and chisel to pop the screw.

It isn't stripped, sorry. The insert is spinning inside the board. I tightened the bindings down and went for a set, then they were loose and that is now the problem.

try to get something flat under the screw / binding to pry upwards. Some times some upward pressure will cause the insert to bite and the screw will come out. Its time for a new board or a new stance casue that insert done.
