How to replace threaded rivnut (62-022)

A handy person from Illinois says:
I have a wooden screen door which was made using your hardware. The door has 14 rivnuts installed that provide anchor points for the screws and clips that hold in the screen/glass.

Unfortunately, the threading on one of the rivnuts has been damaged somehow, and it is no longer possible to thread the screw into the rivnut.

I have already submitted an order for some replacement rivnuts, and I hoping you would share the best way to remove/replace the damaged rivnut already in position in the wooden door.

Thank you

PS: Well, there were actually two rivnuts that had become damaged, but one of them had already become loose in its mounting hole on the wood frame; so that one I really had little choice and just removed it and refilled the hole with some toothpicks and glue into which I will redrill a mounting hole for the replacement rivnut. I was hoping you would be able to suggest a "cleaner" method for replacing the other rivnut.

Thank you for your inquiry. The 62-022 Rivnuts are not made to be removed once installed. You could try to install a screw into the threads and possibly pry it out with a type of flat bar or a claw hammer. You might be better off putting putty over the old hole and drill a new hole above it or below it. Check out the video listed on the right. Let us know how this works for you.
