Pool pulling apart

After removing rails to change pool light , screws were left out for two days. There is now a gap and screws cannot be reinserted. Does anyone know what is used and how to pull back together without draining pool. This is above ground pool.

providing the light niche is just backed away, take a screw to your local hardware store and buy all thread rod, they are probably 1/4" course but you will have to determine correct size, thread, screw two into ajacent sides of the light pull the niche, [ shell ] towards you enough to get a screw of the proper length started , dont tighten all the way do the same on the other side, then install all the other screws , tighten in a cross patch manner to apply equal pressure on the unit. don't overtighten the screws whatever you do.

add silicone seal to the parts before installing to make a water tight seal, wait 24 hours for the silicone to cure before adding water.
