Rubber Bands for That Pesky Screw
It happens all the time – the screw is stripped, and it makes screwing it in or out almost impossible. The next time this happens to you, don’t lose your mind just yet. Try placing a rubber band on it first.
Put the rubber band flat against the screw head and fit the tip of the screwdriver over the rubber band and into the grooves. It will fill in the gaps in the screw, giving you the traction needed to turn the screw.
