you may have to go to a larger screw. JMO Try to find one with a smaller type head on it. :thumbup: and don't go crazy when tighten it down ok. :thumbup:

Riv nuts
 
In the factory They used riv- nuts, I saw them in Harbor freight , the good ones are carried by aircraft supply companies. An unapproved fix done in the factory was to bend a piece or 2 of 14 or 12 gage sollid copper wire in a minature U shape, slip it in the hole, one leg in and one out and then put the screws back in.
