How to hold screws in a vinyl gate?


I installed a vinyl fence and gate last year. All the fence post have wood inserts for stability. My problem is the gate. Because of wind, the screws that go into the gate itself pulled out. Since it is a gate I did not install the wooden post inside due to the weight. What is the best way to connect the hinges to the gate without having them pull out? I also had the latch on the other side pull out so I would assume what works on the hinges would work on the latch. Thanks,
