Pulled up part of a laminate board

Q: While pulling out our stove it caught and pulled up part of a laminated wood board. How can we fit it back in, replace a single laminated board, without having to replace the whole floor?

A: If this has a better click joint such as Torly’s laminates do, and if you left a small expansion space along the wall, you should be able to push the floor apart about 3/8, drop the board into place and snap it in. Torlys also makes a tool to ease the task of replacing panels in the middle of the floor. That expansion space is essential for success.
