The easiest DIY
perfect repair kit -
The screw holes I needed to fix are pretty small, relatively speaking, and the small tip end of the fastener work great. I could *immediately* tell the difference. Better yet I was able to use the large part on a table that had a stripped screw too and only had to buy one Screw It Again.
When I tried other methods they held in place for a couple of pulls on the cabinet doors, but usually in the same day started working their way out. Without getting out a magnifying glass and flashlight to confirm, I believe the screws were just a little too short, the wood a little to soft, and the holes a little too used to really hold the screws well anymore. And this made a huge difference.
One of the hinge plates kept coming apart from our "cardboard door" (as my hub says lol). We finally thought we were gonna have to just replace the door because the holes were all stripped out. THIS WAS A LIFESAVER!! My husband was very skeptical but pleasantly surprised when it fixed the problem! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Have to give it five stars
So easy even I could do it
I've tried the Mr. Grip, toothpicks and matches tricks and had to have my son do it for me. I used the screw it again to firm up some closest doors that had a couple of stripped screws. It's really doing the job and it was very easy. If you can screw a screw in you can fix your stripped screw.
great product - my best $2 ever spent
brought my hinges back to new
We store our wine and liquor on the upper cabinet so the kids can't reach it. Due to opening the panel repeatedly over the years, the screw holes had become stripped and I didn't see a real easy way of fixing this problem. Then I found this stuff...worked great! I cut the little end so the next section would fit in and just screwed it in and snapped the excess. Used the same screw and screwed the hinge back in place. The screw caught very nicely and held just like when the panel was new.
