Re: Stripped out scew threads...
Next time just snug them up gentle - no high torque needed here.
No for a fix I have used in the past on light duty fasteners that have stripped out. J B Weld. Clean the hole really good (Alcohol etc) and use a tooth pick to apply a tiny amount of J B Weld to the hole edges, don't completely fill it. Then take the screw and dip it in some light machine oil and dab up the excess with some tissue. Slide the screw into the hole as far as you can push it and let it set over night.
Break the screw loose with a "loosening" movement and then apply light torque to secure the screw. I have even used this technique on the 8MM fuel tank bolt that is always a bi**h to get started in the right side of the frame.
