Two of my electric guitars had loose strap-lock screw holes. For a quick and easy fix, I simply squeezed a little wood filler into the screw holes, screwed the strap-locks back into place, and allowed the wood filler to set.
Now the screws are nice and snug, and I don't have to stop playing every 10 or 15 minutes to screw in the strap-locks again.
Any brand of wood filler will do (Plastic Wood, Lepages Wood Filler, etc) but I used Lepages because of their easy-to-use nozzle, and since I was dealing with fairly small openings, I used a pushpin to poke a hole in the end of the nozzle instead of cutting it off.
Piece of cake, really.
