Strengthen screw holes using a twist-tie.Posted: 2005-December-24 Filed under: Wood Leave a comment »
Remove the loose screw, bend a twist-tie in half, and stick the bend corner into the hole. Cut it off with scissors, leaving a hole's-width sticking out. Bend the two protruding ends opposite one another, flush to the surface. Screw the screw in again — the thickness of the twist-tie will help keep the screw from pulling out.
