Stripped Screw? We Take Care of That.

Ever tried to remove a screw only to find it was stripped and wouldn’t turn? Drat! Even if you’re short on time, LD has a handy home lifehack solution to help you get a grip.


  1. Cut a thick rubber band and lay it over the screw. (LD has office supplies)
  2. Press a screwdriver through the band and into the screw. (And tools)
  3. Now you can use the rubber to grip the screw’s rough edges.
  4. Remove the screw by turning as normal.


Whew. It’s that easy. No matter how badly you’re stuck, London Drugs has you covered in store and online. And our prices mean you’ll never feel worn out.
