Remove a pair of pliers, either using a screwdriver or the stripped screw. Next, squirt some carpenter’s glue to the hole, then insert the pointed end of a golf tee in, and tap on the tee into position with a hammer.

With a utility knife, cut off the exposed extra part of the golf tee its flush with the doorframe. This will give you a item of substance to drill a new screw into.

Finally, drill a new pilot hole directly into the golf tee and just re-insert the twist through the hinge. The hinge needs to feel a lot more secure and secure.
