Stripped a screw trying to put the docking hardware one. Damn the MOCO and their star screws.

That bites! If you have a dremel, carve a flat groove in the head of the screw and use a flat head to unscrew it....... While we're bitching, my key broke off in the door to my business yesterday.

If its an allen head, try pushing a metric head into it (sometimes you have to use a hammer) then turn it out. Also, they make drill bits that counter screw just for pulling out stripped screws. Unfotunately, I have used both methods many times, but they work.

I used a screw extractor kit. Though it was defiantly not as easy as the picture showed on the back of the package.

h-donut, I think that I could use a really good set of torx and hex sockets, and t-handles.

Take a1/4 " drill bit and drill it into the head slowly and the head will pop right off.Then just take the controlls off and unscrew the stud by hand.No damage to the chrome or paint.

I know it's a little late now, but I chase every threaded hole on aftermarket stuff these days. My floorboard extenders where unbelievable, how crappy the threads where, just helped a buddy after he snapped off a bolt on his HD quick detatch windsheild due to chrome all over the threads...... buy a good set of die's it'll never bite you again.
