Not only did it fix the bedpost I was fixing, I was able to use it to fix a lose connection on a car battery.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WTW Worked Great for Sagging Door
I have a brand new home, and the builder already came to my house once to fix my pantry door which was rubbing on the door frame. When it started doing it a second time, I figured out the hinge holes in the door were completely stripped (I wonder which ham fisted trim guy did this). Deciding to take matters into my own hands, I used Mr. Grip and it seems to have worked great. The screws really dug into the door and seem solid. Like others, I cut thin strips and folded them in half before inserting them into the screw hole. I found it was best to not bend the strips fully in half so that there was some spring action keeping them in the hole. After putting a bend at the center of the strip, I also bent the tip of each end so that it was flared out (sort of like a "Y"); this allowed the tip of the screw to easily wedge in between both sides of the strip before going into the hole.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Leeds INCREDIBLE PRODUCT IDEA
I have an Artimide Tizio lamp that has these weights which allow for balanced movement. The bottom weight is held with two screws. Some manufacturing flaw, the metal screw holes gave out. Contacting the manufacturer didn´t pan out. After examining the holes, I needed something to compensate, and came across Mr Grip in the internet. I measured the depth of the holes, and cut strips of Mr Grip, which I bent in two, and inserted into the hole. I placed the weight on the lamp and screwed it back in. Just what the doctor ordered, perfect solution!!!! I have now a lose cabinet door that I´m going to fix with Mr Grip!!!

I purchased this product a week ago, and so far I've repaired 1 chair leg (steel screw into a steel base plate assembly), and 3 cabinet pulls (stripped steel tube from which the screws loosened and came out very often). I only had to use very small pieces, and some only on one side (even though the packaging implies two are required). It is easy to cut, and place, and you can unscrew and try again if necessary. I recommend using a flat head micro screwdriver to smash the metal against the side of the space before attempting to place the screw inside - it tends to help it stay in place better.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyCamper Repaired stripped bottom threads on pool filter (1500 lbs+ of tension)
My fiberglass pool filter bottom threads stripped out. The stainless threaded rod is 1/2 inch plus, load can reach 1 ton before filter gets changed.
I wrapped 2 of these around the rod bottom threads, roughest side in, toward threads, wrapped two more around that, roughest side out and pressed them down into stripped hole. Removed rod and tapped them in full depth, then added marine epoxy to hole and threaded the rod into place, driving marine epoxy up thru repair mesh. Waited 24 hours and the fix was complete. Have run 2 weeks without problems.
The alternative was to buy a new $450 housing and re-pipe it in. Epoxy alone would NOT have held.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lou Good product to solve a problem with few alternatives.
This is a really light, bendable metal. After using is I think you could probably use pieces of an aluminum can for a similar effect. I used it on a metal Anderson storm door. Still these are less than 2 dollars and the screw really dug into the wire mesh. Time will tell but it's a solution. I was using golf tees which were wearing out. The only other solution I could find was using bigger screws. All this did was make bigger stripped holes.

New aluminum patio furniture had 2 stripped holes and we didn't want the trouble of exchanging. Cut a strip for each hole, curved the pieces to the shape of the hole with a needle nose and put in hole. Sized it to 1/2 the circumference of the hole and the screw had enough to bite into.

This should be a must have in all tool boxes. Fixed my sagging door better than it ever was. Cut very thin strips. Fold them in half longways and fill your stripped out screw hole. So far so good. Let's see how long it lasts.
