Step 2: Remove the screw

Picture of Remove the screw
Insert your small flathead into the space within the screwdriver head as shown here, and simply turn clockwise. The screw will easily come loose. Congradulations!

won't work if screw is too small (torx security 07 for example). I broke my little screwcriver trying that... Maybe you need a VERY solid screwdriver but I guess it's still best to buy the proper screwdriver :)

Good idea quinxorin. I drilled a hole in my Torx driver big enough to take the pin. It is easier to do this with a drill press, but it can be done with a handheld drill. Cutting a notch out of a flathead screwdriver also works for flathead or combination screws.

 Clockwise to unscrew?
Its righty tighty, lefty lousy
not always though
That is true. Most left-hand screws are used when there is a torque (twist effort) in a counter clockwise rotation... that will cause a bolt to come loose...
