Never had this happen but possibly you could re heat the nuts to melt them back in?

Christian, I actually thought about doing that. Put the Heat Gun on EM and see if they stick or just pull them out

Then plastic weld a couple new ones in hmmm

I had a similar situation a couple of years ago. I removed the nut and filled the perimeter of the hole with fresh plastic (I used a black zip-tie and soldering iron) and let it cool down. I then heated the nut with a torch and gently pressed it back in. I then cut away the plastic that oozed out and blended everything together with a heat gun. It worked great.

Edit: The above repair was for a convenience gear strap under the seat. It was not for a structural nut. So, Im not sure if the above repair will hold under the pressure of a handle. Saying this, I cannot think of another way without drilling all the way through and using a washer.

A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.
