    I've got a fence running along the top of a stone wall. The posts are secured using metal supports that are screwed into the concrete capping.

    Two of these supports have become loose because the screws have been loosened by the action of the wind & there's no bite anymore when I try to tighten them with an impact driver.

    Bottom line is, I can't drill new holes because they need to be in this exact position so was wondering if there was anyway of reconditioning the existing ones? Is there some magic gunk I can squirt in that will allow me to tighten the screws again to a sufficient torque?

    Resin anchor kit (y) - you won't need to tighten the screws with that
