Question about Home
Hello, annemoss, W/D here.
There is a product that is sold for stripped out screw heads. It has a grit in it, and you place a drop of it on the screwdriver before you put it into the stripped slot. The grit fills the strripped void and allows the screwdriver to get a good bite. The brand I have used is called "Screw Doctor", but there are others. The large "box" hardwares will have this type product, as will Sears.
Another alternative is to drill the screw head through to the shaft of the screw from the back side. Use your old screws that you have already taken out to determine the proper drill bit size. The aim with this method is to remove the screw without making the screw hole too much larger.
Best regards, --W/D--
