This problem is fairly plumbing related. I have a kitchen light with extension rods that screw together. Yesterday my light plummeted until caught by the electrical wires. I tried to screw it back together, and found that the threads on the two joining pieces (basically pipes) are too loose to screw together. You can push them in and pull them apart easily. So now how do I keep my light up and hold the weight of the glass shade?
So here's the big question-- what product do I use to beef up the screw threads and make sure they never pull apart again? I'm afraid most products out there will only lock the two pipes together if the threads already fit properly. Help!
Teflon tape might do the trick.
If you don't plan to disassemble the thing, you could epoxy them togeather.
Or you could drill a thin hole (1/16") through the entire assembly and secure with a finish nail acting as a pin.
