The screws holding my tremolo(FR) claw in have ripped out of the body of my guitar. The guitar was kept in a hot environment for about a day and I believe this made the wood expand temporarily and caused the claw screws to fly out. I have tried bigger screws and also taking a spring out and screwing the claw in farther into the wood, but I could only tune to D standard because of the decreased tension. I want to put the guitar in E flat now and I'm wondering if anyone knows anyway to resolve the situation.
I've tried adding the other spring again but once i get it set-up it pulls itself out within minutes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would personally probably try filling the existing holes the best you can with some sort of wood putty or epoxy or something and then re-screw your screws in after it sets up.

Thanks, I haven't really thought about that. I'll definitely look into this.
