2002 Ford E-150 Question: how to rethread head for spark plug

Spark plug blew out of head for the 2nd time.This time it striped the threads on the head.I tried a sparkplug repair kid where you rethread the heads and use the little black piece(cant remember the name) to screw into the head then the plug into that piece.Proublem is when i put a socket on the threader tool the socket is to big to fit down in the hole which means the threader isnt reaching the head.what do i do? -

when im changing the spark plugs i use spark plug wrench and a 3 inch extension.Whenwrench and extension are on the plug it only sticks up far enough to barley get your fingers on it. The repair tool has a big head on it and when i put a socket on it that fits it is to big to fit down in the hole. -
