Repairing Stripped Screw Holes in Plastic Repairing Stripped Screw Holes in Plastic Hot

I've always struggled with a good way to repair stripped screw holes in plastic ramps until watching the product video for the Plastex Repair Kit.  The Plastex product is a two part plastic resin, consisting of a powder and liquid catalyst.

All you have to do is enlarge the stripped hole slightly, apply some light oil to the screw, apply a ball of Plastex to the screw threads, place the screw in the stripped hole and clean up any excess plastic. 

The result is a nice strong joint since Plastex fuses with the plastic to create a welded joint like Super Glue.

The product video is available in the reference link below.  The method for repairing stripped screw holes is about 8 minutes into the video.
