Re: Preventing loose strap buttons
You've got the right idea. What I did as a guitar tech if someone had a stripped thread was to take some super glue (sounds silly, but totally works, and will last!) and sawdust and refill the thread hole. Once it is set, you can re-install the strap button and it will be good as new!
The sawdust is very important; all that guitar weight will tear through superglue, but using sawdust will "remake" the wood there and help grab onto the threads.
Hope this helps!
