You could also tap the stripped threads up one size, but then you would need new screws (wing or otherwise).
Here's a video on helicoil installation:

I restored a 1974 Slingerland drum set with the same problem on 5 of the brackets. Here is what I did. I new a friend that worked in a tool and dye factory. He retapped all the brackets, cut the threads off the tee bolts and welded new ones on to match the tap. I took the t bolts to a chrome plater. It came out perfect. I know this sounds expensive since access to a tool and dye person is limited, but it was a sure fix.
Well, I tried the helicoil and the results were less than desireable. It looks like I'm now in need of a new bracket
