This works for most screws with a stripped head or security bolts that you don't have the right tool for. Just grab a center punch and a hammer then center punch the side of the screw. When you have a big dent then start hitting the center punch on an angle to get the screw moving. Once its moved 1/2 a turn or so you can undo the screw with pliers or your fingers.
FAR better to buy screw remover they aren't expensive.
or even better, than those rolson extractors, is to buy a tool that you can use for removing stripped screws...and many other things <br> <br>http://www.precisehandtools.com/screw-pliers/engineer-pz-58-neji-saurus-gt-multi-purpose-pliers-with-screw-extractor-jaws
I always find myself unscrewing stripped screws or bolts out in the wild when I don't have ideal equipment with me. Rick isn't wrong, but this is a super-useful tip for people who may not run into stripped screws often enough to merit purchasing screw removers.
yep.agreed. not a bad instructable tho.
