Method 1 Try a Different Screwdriver
If you’re stuck getting a screw out, sometimes all it takes is to switch the size of your screwdriver or to switch the type of screwdriver. For example, try using a larger or smaller head size and see if that helps. If you’re stuck getting a Philips-head screw out, try using a flat-head screwdriver to remove it. If it doesn’t loosen immediately, be sure to stop so you avoid stripping the screw.
