Get a pair of ViceGrips. Fasten very tightly on the head of the screw and use them to turn the screw out.


Are you saying you have tried to turn it in and then back out this is what I usually try with tough screws. If going through metal many screws strip out the last thread or 2. If the threads on the screw are stripped I pry up on the screw while trying to back it out. This can be tough but ether the screw will back out or the screw breaks off. Can be frustrating. If all else fails you may be able to rock the screw head back and forth and break it off then shove it in. Option 2 would be to cut the head off and push it in. I have had to do both in the past.then patch the area around the screw.
