Black's releases stripping threads?

I've had 2 Black's releases develop striped threads for the small tension adjustment screw (one actually fell right out) in the past year. Anybody else had this and have the reason figured out? Thanks

Wow! I've used them for about 50 years and never have seen that one and I've used every version of them, but once I have them adjusted where I want them (about 3 1/2 lbs or so on the scale) I don't often mess with the tension either.

Any more I only use blacks on my flasher/fly or meat rigs, everything else I've been running Chamberlain's. But with that said, I have never had one strip, I guess good thing they're only $10. Chamberlain's are twice that.

I had one strip out a few years ago, re-tapped larger to #6-32 ( I think) and put a phillips head screw in. needed a screw driver to adjust, but works just fine.
