Help. I have limited knowledge of home repairs. The holes where the screws that attach the closer rod to the storm door are stripped (both top and bottom) and the screws fall out leaving the storm door swinging wide open (not attached except at hinges). I've tried bigger screws but that only works for about a week and then they fall out also. Any suggestions?

You could drill holes completely through the door, then use bolts, nuts, and washers. For appearance sake, I would put the bolt head on the outside of the door. Get bolts that are the right length (you measure) and that won't rust.
