Door Strap Mount

My 95 yj rio grande drivers side door got caught by the wind and it pulled the mount and screws right out of the door. I've run in larger self tappers but then they pull out also. Does anyone else have this going on? Is there a fix, ideally w/out removing the door panel?

Removing the door panel only takes a few minutes. Thats probably the easiest fix too, just use a bolt and nut. But if you really dont want to take the panel off, I guess you could weld it instead

I would just use a bolt/washer/nut but I guess if you don't want to do that, you could use rivnuts and a bolt, or just some plain rivets if you can find them long enough

You could use rivet nuts. Harbor Freight has a reasonably priced kit.

I would not recommend welding - I saw that repair on a door once, and it looked really horrible.

Pop Rivets would also work.
