If you need to put a screw in sunglasses or eyeglasses, dab the screw with clear nail polish to keep it in place. The nail polish keeps it in place as it gets in all the cracks and spaces.

Good idea, but one word of caution-if you do this on eyeglasses that are under warranty & end up needing to have them repaired, this will void the warranty. If you have them under warranty & the screw comes out or won't stay tight-take them in & they can put something on the screws to keep them from coming out.

If you find the screws on your sunglasses always go loose then once you have tightened them up, apply a tiny dot of clear nail polish over the screw, let dry and walla!

...and, if it's too late and you've already lost the screw, a piece of wire from bread ties, etc. works very well in it's place. Make sure you strip the paper or plastic from the very thin wire inside, put the wire through the holes where the screw was, and tighten it as much as you can. Once you break off the excess, you can't even see it. I did this for my daughter's glasses, and you can't tell it's there, it's so fine, and it works so much better than the screw that wouldn't stay in (too bad I didn't get the polish tip earlier!).
