I am using the solderless adapter to install my Xenium. But in getting everything properly lined up, I have managed to strip out the mounting hole, so now I can't tighten the adapter down. Anyone have any suggestions on a way that I can fix this?

Thanks in advance

Suggestions:

1) use wider screw
2) drill hole through xbox and use a nut and bolt
3) use locktight and screw
4) solder in pin header and forget about the solderless adapter
5) Don't bother using a modchip, j/k

What size should you use? For it to fit nice and snug.... My xbox has been sitting here waiting to be used for a couple of weeks now. Please help....

just get a screw big enough that will be snug in the hole you stripped out and tighten it down.

I just wanna make sure what size. I have no extra screws around that would fit. If anyone knows what would for sure work, could they tell me?
