Re: Plastic mast track removal??

I understand your situation and have dealt with the same issue. I have used a quick release pin with a small line secured to a ring on the end to a fixed point so I can't drop and lose it. Simply drill out the present screw to a diameter that accepts the SS pin. Pull the pin to allow the desired number of slugs to pass and then reinset the pin. Someone might have a better idea, but this has worked for me.
