Spiral stair banister screw won't fit

In the pic you can see that the screw will fit in the bracket but the banister has a big hole that the screw is too small for. The banister is kind of like plastic and when I removed the screw some plastic stuff came out with it. I don't know if that was some sort of brace. It was unusable at any rate. Any ideas on what I can do?

Is the handrail hollow? You may be able to fill the hole with JB Weld, let it cure, then redrill the hole for your screw.

Perhaps a hollow wall anchor would work.
