Is there a way to fix a pull up bar when the tip screwed right off and won't screw on again?

The thread hole hits the screw (detail) and just clunks there, spinning round and round without latching.

  • $\begingroup$ is the thread stripped, does it just not start, or is the threaded rod inside the tube spinning freely? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ r13 It won't go in more than the tip, I'd need to cut it, was looking for a nondestructive solution. $\endgroup$ May 20, 2021 at 10:50
