Over the years, I'm finding myself frustrated with a whole mess of interior screws stripping and pulling loose. These are wood/metal screws sunk into wood or plastic.
Curtain ties, penthouse shade, curtain rod (fixed with new hole/screw):
Penthouse bed hangers. Here are a couple ugly rushed "fixes" of mine: Bigger wood screws, and a bolt/plate combination I hacked together when my bigger wood screw/anchor combination finally pulled out too:
Drawer face: Look at all the wood screws Sportsmobile used to make this drawer. Half of them are stripped, and two were already missing when the van was new:
Cabinet door hinges. I've already placed larger screws into these:
Even the front penthouse latch receivers are internally bolted to a piece of wood held in place with a couple of wood screws. (I'll post the story later of opening that up after the wood screws snapped.)
Once these screws have stripped out, it's not always obvious to me how to repair them. I've screwed around with half-ass fixes such as larger screws, filling/shrinking/gluing the holes, using nut & bolts, using anchors. Nothing works great. What about rivets
, I wonder?
FYI, here are a couple discussions/ideas I've found here on the Forum...
Anyway, I have no real pearls of wisdom here, but I just wanted to vent -- and see who shares my problem, and perhaps hear about some good fix ideas.
