I have a problem with putting a metal bedframe together. One of the holding screw bolt joint holders has fallen out of its socket in the frame. When I put it back in, it is loose and just spins. This means I cannot screw the bolt into it as the receiving socket just spins. I cannot drill a hole all the way through as none of the other joints will have this, resulting in a poor looking finish. See drawing of issue
Had the same problem with my sons bed, I Work in an engineering shop & made a new insert a little bigger so it was tight in there. There’s no quick fix with this, either weld it or drill straight through.
