24. Fillers for Stripped Holes

I save the ends cut from nylon cable ties to fill stripped screw holes or to anchor screws when I hang things on a concrete, tile, or plaster wall. They hold better than matchsticks and don't splinter. For best results, place the ties' notched sides out, against the side of the hole.
