thx Mrgybe...I'll try first plugging the hole with JB PlasticWeld before going for drastic brass inserts repair.
PlasticWeld epoxy supposedly bonds with ABS/PVC/Vynil/Composite, etc.

Went to Walmart and bought Permatex threadlocker (blue) instead - So far, so good.
PlasticWeld took too long to arrive.
