Rubber band, man!
I’m a homeowner who tries to be handy. When that fails…
I call Ed.
So I loved this tip I picked up on the Interwebs about dealing with stripped screws. (If you’ve known this for years, bear with me because it bears repeating for folks like me.)
To remove the stripped screw, simply place a rubber band over it. Then use your screwdriver to unscrew it.
The rubber band should provide enough grip for you to ease the screw right out.
You’re not reading this anymore, are you? You’re taking care of all those dodgey screws in your house!
Sorry, Ed — we’ve got this one.
