Simply loosen twisted screws | Learn processing with Frank #09

Frank shows you how to loosen a screw that has gone loose with a very simple trick. You certainly did not expect this ingenious solution.

that's how it works

Step 1: There is a very simple trick for unscrewing a screw with a broken head: You take a standard condom and wrap it around the bit tip of the screwdriver. If you now turn the screwdriver, the condom provides the necessary support and the screw can be removed again. Since condoms are tear-resistant, this technique works very well.

Step 2: If you don't have a condom at hand, you can also use water pump pliers to unscrew the defective screw again. However, if the screw has a countersunk head, this technique will not work and you will have to drill it out.
