Awning support arms

The screws in my awning support arms are stripped out. Does anyone know how to fix this?

I think I know what you are talking about, but maybe you should post photos. Anyway, check out Ace or true value hardware. If they don't have it, it ain't broke.

So send photos

Happened to me and the screw in drywall anchors work great to give a strong holding point.

Install rivnuts. They are like pop rivets not to hard to put in and you can use a good bolt.
