DIY instructions to repair a stripped screw hole in wood. Quick and easy with no special tools.
what if its like a whole by BBs ? 😛 how can i fix that?
Fill the whole with your wood, watch the glue dribble out.
I dont bother drilling the whole, I just go straight in. You can drill a nice tiny whole if you want if you need to guide it in.
+John Rankin I don’t both with the glue. I go in dry.
+Danny Keeley ….whole
+Adam Johnson lol whoops
So I ended up using this method and I can 100% vouch for it. Was a life saver!
Could there be any danger in using matches? such as friction lighting them?
I would assume that he was only using the stick to fill the hole. break the match head off.
Maybe cut the foreskin of the matches
…I feel like this shouldn’t be a question…and the fact that it is, makes me wonder if you should own tools. For your own safety mate…
Thank goodness people are thoughtful enough to make helpful videos like this!
I didn’t know Will Forte was such a handyman!

Maybe a dash of Rick Steves in there too…
Brilliant! Thank you so much! I was going to go out and buy bigger screws but this is a great idea.
Great voice. Could listen all day.
yes excellent for TV
Short and sweet. Thanks! Side note though, the subtitles are a little wonky at times. Not sure if that’s something you can edit or if that’s YouTube’s doing.
add some GLUUUEEEE… A LITTLE MORE GLUUUUE… I LIKE THE GGLLUUUEE. LOL JK. Great video
Fantastic, easy fix!!! thanks!!! My dumb self was trying to use wood putty and it never holds!!! this easy fix worked like a champ. Also, great video!! I hate watching tutorials on youtube where they stretch out what could take 3 or 4 minutes into a 10 minute piece with crappy music in the background or worse!
You could also hammer a piece of wood dowel in the hole with some glue.
Look at all of this bought Woodprix spam. Yuck.
Smokey_78 Every time I see woodprix spam I report the comment. If everyone did this it would help.
Also works with Popsicle sticks. The non-sticky end, mind you. Thank you for showing me how to make the first repair in my new house ^_^
what if my doors are hollow wood doors? Any idea to fix those?
I had the same problem, hollow wood. First I made another hole on the plate of the door hinge, in between the other holes. I used a set of step drill bits to make a new hole and inserted a new screw. It worked on an interior door but not on the exterior door due to wood rot. For the exterior door I used hollow wall anchors size 6-32 at a depth of 2 inches, its a temporary workaround meanwhile I get the whole door and frame replaced. https://www.homedepot.com/p/6-32-x-2-3-8-in-Zinc-Plated-Steel-Hollow-Wall-Anchors-with-Truss-Head-Combo-Drive-Screws-25-Pack-804082/204273424
I’ve been a trim carpenter for more years than I care to remember. Golf tee’s work great for this. I always have a bag of them handy for exactly this situation.
Is that a Wisconsin accent I detect?
Go to woodprix if you’d like to build it yourself.
is this as strong as just scewing in a bigger screw?
