Yeah but for the sake of mounting bindings you can apply more than enough torque with any type of screw driver, and I wouldn't go as far as saying you have "no torque force" with a flat head. Afterall they were invented to avoid over torquing.

Phenom This is why phillips head screws suck.

+1 to recutting a slot across the head and using a flathead screwdriver

Easy outs break all the time, the trick I mentioned works well.

Argo If it was super cold when you tightened them then the material was slightly more dense at the time. Now that it is inside and warm the material expands and makes it even tighter. Even a nanometer would cause you problems. If you would Have cooled them off outside it would have helped in the beginning. Now u may need the easy out type of bit if stripped. If not stripped then put them out in the cold for a few hours and try again.

J.Schaef you are probably using the wrong screwdriver.

Probably trying to use a #2 screwdriver. You need a #3 screwdriver for binding screws.

Extremo They make tools for that...I have one, but only needed it for a wood screw. It would probably be my first choice in a situation like this.
