    You might have a backlink stuck, try hitting with a hammer...that might work

    I love the way some people interpret 'other tools'

    I never thought of that this forums can be used to ask that too lol ... i suggest you to take it to the cooking gas and hot it for a min or two then keep hitting while heating with a screw driver or something like that.

    Exactly what I was thinking :D

    Anyway, the only thing I can think of is, "heat n hit"....
    Heat it a little bit, hit it at random, repeat until it comes out...

    If it's stuck because the storage part is magnetic, then you could always try a stronger magnet to get it out?

    use your drill , and drill it out , use a 4 or maybe 5mm drill bit and drill the head of the screw , then just pull it out with some pincers or pliers :)

    Just hit it in the floor with lot of force , keep doing it. Due to shock the screw might fall apart.

    I would have just used a paper clip shaped like a hook. Or conversely super glued the end of the paper clip to the screw and then waited an hour. Then you just pull it out...

    I've had this happen about eight times, and each time the paper clip has saved me.

    drill a hole thru it and thread it, then insert a threaded bolt and pull it out. or spend 2.99 and get a new one. lol

    i have had a similar problem before and i just got the threads lined up from where i took out the screw and started putting it back in. The torque will make the scew loose.
