Quite often if the fin is struck hard the tabs break and a plug can be ripped from the board , they can be replaced , I don't know of anyway of rethreading the plug ( there maybe, anyone else know) but a plug replacement is no big deal.
One way of cutting out a slight crossed thread is to take your fin out seat the grub screw correctly and with the key screw it right through until it drops into the plug hole, then re house the fin carefully and screw up with sensitivity, this will take even less force than before to damage the thread!
