I've been using straplocks for a few weeks, but it turns out my strap button is actually too small for both the lock and strap... Long story short, the strap has been slowly unscrewing the button, and now it's fallen out. This would be fine, except I can't screw it back in. How do I fix this?

Thanks. Won't that damage the wood though?
EDIT: Sorry, I didn't see your post BrianApocolypse. How will the match stick help?

so, the problem is that the button fell off and now the hole has become to big to screw it back on?

I usually solve this problem by putting a toothpick or a match in the hole (paper will also do the trick) and maybe a bit of glue, and then just screw it back on! Then the problem will be solved

Because it'll fill up the hole.

You don't want to glue the screw back in - what if you need to take the button off for some reason? What if the glue gets all over the finish of the guitar?

Thanks. I'll try it now.


It works a treat.
