Hi- I've got a kingpin that won't budge and I've come dangerously close to stripping it in the process of trying to get it loose. Before I mess with it further, I just thought I'd try to fish around for any tricks on remedying this. Scott at Catek recommended the following: "Use the binding plate like a lever to pull up against the head of the kingpin while you are loosening the kingpin. This keeps a constant pressure on the spherical nut. Just grab the toe or heel of the baseplate an pull upward while loosening." I will try this next time I reunite with my board at Sugarloaf (hopefully when that noreaster hits up here in 2 days!), but I'd really appreciate advice in addition to this if you've got it. Thanks a million-
