Stripped Screw on Antenna Plate

So just as the description says, when putting one of the hex screws back in on the antenna plate, I over tightened and stripped one of the screws. And when I say stripped, I mean I stripped the threads, the screw just spins now and doesn't hold, it just falls out. Is there any solution for this?

Usually it's possible to grab the screw with a pair of needled nose pliers. If not, you might have to drew the screw out using a drill.

Hope it helps!

To get it to hold back in place, you can always try using some Loctite or another type of threadlocker. Just don't get the super high strength stuff, or you'll do more damage.

Thats kind of what I was thinking...Guess I'll give that a shot.
