rPod 179 2017

The hinges on the cupboard doors, just to right as you walk in the door, are the spring-latch type, which keep the cupboard door closed. That's good.
Not so good: the tension on the mounting point while opening and closing is too strong for the type of fastener rPod uses. Result: hinged tore out of frame. rPod only used one screw. 
Any suggestions how to re-attach, and make it stronger?

Thanks
Jim

Normal cabinet repair would be to fill the stripped hole with toothpicks, match sticks, etc, and glue, then reinsert the screw, then you will need to drill and place the missing screw..
