Aluminum siding

Aluminum siding popped out front drivers side on the way home from the desert. Had to pull over and install some sheet metal screws to get home. Is there a better way to fix this problem ? Its a 1995 weekend warrior. Pretty rough on the outside so I didn't mind the outside screws.

Thanks !

Pop rivets is about the only other way I can think of. Could always reuse the existing holes from the screws you popped in.

I agree. Otherwise watch the screws in case they want to vibrate and back out on you.

That's a very vague description. Did it pop out from behind the trim holding it down?
Or did it just pop out from the tongue/groove section?
