    What I do with stripped out screw holes is separate the pieces then put some super glue in the screw hole and let it cure. Once dry you can unscrew the screw, usually the glue will be bonded tight in the hole but not too well to the screw. Viola! new threads for the hole.
    coating the scfrew with petroleum jelly or something before gluing in the hole may help it release better.

    What about if the peg/hole has shattered. I need to reform it. Tips on materials and how to bond it to the original plastic? THanks
