My L.parahybana sling's 2nd and 3rd pair of legs are stuck in its molt around the tibia-basitarsus joint. It's been over 48 hours since it has been trapped and I think I have to remove its legs. I'm wondering what would be the best way to go about this.

Try with a q tip to loosen it. If not, cut them off with small sizors as low as you can get. The more leg left the less work for regeneration next molt.

Share some pics.
I would send pictures but the spider died. Turned out all of its legs were trapped in the molt, some of them completely, which led me to think only two pairs were trapped. I had to cut off all of the legs which ended up killing the spider.

....A spider can't live with zero legs....
