depending on how tight you have the screw, use either superglue or as mentioned quicksteel. if that doesnt work, can you get a pair of needle nose pliers on it? thats a much easier way to do things.

These things are awesome and you do not damage any parts around the bad screw. Once the guys at the track used mine, you see them everywhere now. Great Product!

The 3 piece set is fine.

i agree, those pro-grabbits are nice, there are tons of options out there. There are also some that look almost like a phillips screwdriver head, they taper, have razor sharp cutting edges and work great for anything small. Head bolts on the other hand tend to like to snap them. just head into your local hardware or farm store, explain to someone in there your problem, they're likely to have 3 or more options that will work great.

If it's a screw that can be left on its own after removing all others out of something like a radio tray just turn the tray instead with whatever you have that best fits the worn screw head holding it... Once you turn it the slightest amount you will then easily be able to undo the screw

Dremel a slot in the head and use a flat tip to remove it easiest way and takes all of 5 min.
