Topic - Broken Trekking poles - how to fix?

jimykx - on 15 Apr 2014

So I was hikking but I didn't tighten my trekking pole's blocking system enough, and it was a little loose. I slipped on the snow and because it was loose it broke the screw of the blocking system (that tightening spot) in half, so the other half of the screw and the mechanism that expands to tighten the pipe stood inside of the main pipe and it just broke in half.

This image explains more or less what happens (It's not my model, mine is a Summit light MASTERS.) http://imageshack.com/a/img841/6913/1th3.jpg
So it broke where you can see the red line, and the green part is now inside the main holding pole, while the other half is separated.

Is there any way I can remove this screw and replace it with a new one? Is there any way at all I can fix this or do I have to buy new trekking poles just because of this broken screw?
Thanks in advance.
