Faceplate Screws


Recommended Posts

The screw in my faceplate fell out and left home.

 

Two questions

 

1) Would a Home Depot carry a screw like this?

 

2) What would be a good glue to use on the screw to hold it in place?

I am told not to use Loctite. I need a tiny bit larger thread.  The screw is not biting into the fiberglass.  The hole is wallowed out.

Take the screw to Home Depot, Ace Hardware, or other hardware store and you should find a similar screw, just get a slight larger screw. You might purchase 2 different sizes to insure one grabs the fiberglass. That is very strange. Did you remove the inverter face for some reason previously?

Use a wood toothpick and a bit of Tightbond glue in the hole.  Don't over tighten it.  Replace the other screw and they will match.
