Today i bought strap locks and have just tried to screw them onto my new epiphone les paul which i bought two days ago. One of the strap locks have screwed in no problem at all but the other one does not tighten and can fall out of the hole. How do i fix this problem?!

had this same problem a week ago.

get a toothpick, break it in half, put it in the hole then put ur straplock in and the teeth on the screw will dig into the toothpick and hold it in place

stick a wooden tooth pick in the hole, break it so it fits in nicely, and then screw the screw in.

I have read some horror stories of people dropping les pauls and the head snapping off. Any chance that this toothpick fix could fail on me and destroy the guitar?

i tested it right after by spinning around fast enough so that the guitar was lifted as i spun and it didnt fall out and hasnt yet. try moving the pin to see if its secure if ur that scared

also if u wanna be super careful glue the toothpick in
