If you mean that the screw falls out, you should do as El Pájaro says and get a new, bigger one. If you aren't going to go to take it off again you can fill the hole with glue before you put the screw in. This will make it stick really really well, and you will never have this problem. If you get a good glue, it will become stringer then the actual body of the bass, so... :)
Be sure to whipe access glue from the bass while it is wet though.
If you use epoxy for instance and don't wipe it off directly, you will get dropps that will be pure hell to get off without hurting the bass. Trust me ;O)


: It keeps falling off!I have a Hamer Slammer Blitz,I just got this bass last December.It's my first.I don't think it's a particularlly good bass either(read:it kinda sucks),because my mother bought it for me for Christmas as a surprise and she has no knowledge of bass guitars at all.She says she got it for like $500 or something and it's new.So,anyways,someone help me on how to fix this strap knob because it's annoying to be into some song then all of a sudden have the thing fall!Thanks alot.
