My Garage
I would try a two part epoxy. JB weld or the like. I have some of the grey stuff used for reflectors in the street.
Put a very thin film (very thin!!) of vaseline on the threads of your screw, then overcoat with epoxy and fill the hole with epoxy almost to the top, insert screw, let dry to the point you can cut it with a blade, use an x-acto knife or razor blade and cut the excess away. Then let it cure, remove the screw and you will have new threads that should be tuff enough for this application.

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.
