light sporran repair
« on: December 05, 2014, 01:16:44 PM »
I have a relatively new sporran I got at Scarby a couple years ago from the Celtic shop.  Recently one of the pieces that attach the strap to the back came off.  It is basically a flat head screw from the inside and holds the leather piece on the back with a screw on round 'nut'.  I put it back on and it still loosens a bit (only hand tightened) .  Could I use some type of glue to make it stay without the worry of it coming loose, or maybe just tighten it a lot? (the other side is just fine). 

Probably is simple, but I was one of the kids who ate the glue in kindergarten  :P

They make some stuff called "LOC-TITE" for that very purpose!  Well, to hold nuts and bolts together anyway.  Get the light duty stuff (I think it's blue).  Get the small tube of it.  Hardware store, probably not at a grocery store.

Thanks Butch - I should have just asked you directly

They'll also have it at an auto parts store. It does come in different colors/grades, but yeah, I'd second the blue.
