Hey all.
I have a problem. The arse of my guitars strap lock has seen some rough performances and the wood holding the screw in has been threaded. Basically i can pull the screw out and push it back in. Would it do any harm if i just get a longer screw and manually drive it deeper into the wood? Or should i get some sort of glue or what? Any suggestions welcome, thanks.

The thing to do is fill the hole with matchsticks and a drop of glue. But if you can actually pull the screw in and out, that's...bad.


Matchsticks are square..

Glue a toothpick in the hole and then screw it back in, it'll hold.

the exact thing hasppened to me and i filled the hole with araldite then drilled a pilot hole and screwed the screw back in and it works way good

So a longer screw ain't the way to go? Split the wood ya recon?

Don't say things like that. I have enough on my plate already.
