hmm

this may or may not work:

You will need an extra hand to do this, so if you aren't good with your feet grab a friend/dad.


While unscrewing the screw from the bottom of the tray, push on the top of the screw from inside the tray.

That should help it bite what little bit of threads are left and let you back it out.

From there I'd order a new tray from ICD.

Its not the tray that is stripped it is the screw that holds in the tray

well,

that same procedure will work either way.

I think when you get it out you will see the screw is ok.

The tray is aluminum and the screw is steel. I've seen this before, the threads pull out of the aluminum tray.

Before we argue too much though, try what I said and get the screw out, then look at it.

I bet you'll see aluminum caked up in the threads of the screw.

I think the allen thread on the head might be bad. If this is the case this is what I have done twice and it worked like a charm. I dont know how old you are but if your under age an adult can do this for you. I can also post pics tonite if you need them . This happened to my teammate if its what I think it is, you use a dremmel to cut a "flathead" on the screw and then flathead screw driver to unscrew it. if done corectly you should be able to save the screw and the tray.

well if you have a dremil or a small saw you can cut a line in the middle of it so you can use a flat head screwdriver to get it out.

my bad

I'm sorry, I took stripped to mean threads were involved.

I like the idea of slotting the head of the screw, I've done that in the past.

Like me and sexybill4ever1 sugqested. Taking a dremel tool and literally "carve" a line across the head of the screw to create a slot so that you would be able to use a flathead to unscrew frame

ok dude, this is what you do... get a pair of clamping pliers... you know, locking thingers that are nice and stuff... now clamp it on the screw... turn... as soon as it's loose enough finish up with your fingers

If you don't have that either... you need to buy some tools dude.. lol!

Dremel by far is your best bet. Had to do that twice. Same screws your talking about.

MAYBE you could somehow mount the allen in the hole, and fill the hold w/ green loc tite. Let it dry, and wala. That's a darfetched idea. Never heard of anyone doing it though. Just made it up.

Ok i got something that will help you. You need a old allen wrench and you will not be able to use the screw again. Also go to you local hard ware store a pick up some JB weld. Jb weld the allen wrench in the screw. Wait for it to dry then unscrew it. Then take one of the other screws back to the hard ware store and get another screw.

Since you dont have a dremel and if you cant get one use a file and file the flathead slot into it, this works but it takes a little bit more time but its better then nothing.
