A quick and easy way to remove a stripped screw
Anyone who likes to work with tools knows this scenario: a screw head is stripped and you can't remove it with a screwdriver or a drill. Here's a very practical tip to help you solve this very annoying problem...
When a screw is stripped, it's practically impossible to turn it using a drill or screwdriver.
The solution is much simpler than you think: just use rubber bands!
Place a rubber band over the stripped screw.

You can also use this method with a screwdriver if you don't have an electric drill.
