    Pound in a tent spike. Just watch you don't crack the wood grain.

    Forgot to mention, it won’t come out, or tighten up. It’s just kind of “floating” in there.

    Important detail I guess.

    All goes to crap, tent spike it is.

    Don't know if anyone else has done this but, I pack the hole with pencil shavings and pack it tight. Then screw the strap button back in and it fits tight. I don't use glue only because I may decide to use different strap locks so I want to be able to unscrew the strap button in the future.
