The screws just fall through and they don’t tighten so anyone have any idea how I fix this?
The holes are stripped. I would say put some wood putty in the holes wait for it to dry and then screw your screws in.
i used thicker screws and i only put them in the outer 4 corners
Between the metal plate and each screw’s respective hole, put a strip of electrical tape, should tighten up the hole pretty well when the screw grabs the tape and takes it with it, and you won’t see it.
Another thing you could do is just get some wider screws. Go to a hardware store, buy some screws that are a bit bigger around than the ones that fell through, and try those. Good luck!
Great ideas, I have to remember them if ever I’m in this situation.
