There are a couple different homemade fixes (toothpicks, rubber bands, etc) to remove stripped or damaged screws, but if you don’t have the time or patience to try those out, consider grabbing this $7 Dr. Meter kit. It includes four bits that fit into any drill, and grip onto screw making them easier to remove. Just be sure to enter NJNWSJG3 at checkout.
