Jockey seat back fastening

I'm after ideas for fastening these. I keep buying new backs and securing them with stainless steel wood screws but after a season or two they're loose and the screw fall out.. Am I missing a better fastener?

If you have a zip in the fabric as some do you can bolt through then put the foam in and zip up?

Nope. No zip. I guess I can unpick the back and put large washers and bolts through/ then re-staple?

Smear the screw threads with expanding Gorilla Glue which will have a Loctite effect in wood.

be careful with gorilla glue it swells 4-5 times might spew out onto the fabric [moisture activated]
