Brita Water Pitcher: Reinforced Lid Screws

While I had the epoxy for the last step in the eyeglass frame repair, I fixed the lid on the never-sufficiently-to-be-damned Brita filter pitcher, as it had just tossed one of its miniature screws somewhere on the kitchen floor.

Nothing too challenging and, as nobody else ever sees this side of the lid, not very pretty:

I probably should have added a brass reinforcement strip around the cracked plastic mounts, but JB Weld epoxy should be strong enough for this job all by itself. Assuming, that is, it can maintain a grip on the plastic; I’m hoping the various fractures will lock it in place.
