From the photo it looks like there is very little screw head to grab hold of. Squaring off the head takes about 2 seconds and would improve your bite ten fold. It would also help the WD penetrate into the screw area..

Sorry for trying to be helpful gobbdogg. You apparently are the tool master.
That was stupid of me to suggest two very common ways to deal with a stripped screw head. I heard duct tape makes great hinges also...

I dont know gobbdogg I always heard penetrating oil likes to sit on and penetrate a flat surface way better than it likes to penetrate a round surface. Its like the earth. If it were round the water would just flow off the edges and into outer space. LOL

I'm having the same problem, will try some of the suggested methods. Old designs suck!
