Exclamation Stripped Roof Rack Screw Head

Anyone have any ideas? Screw head is stripped, itís halfway in. Happened when I installed the 2010-2013 TE rack on my 2016, I just caulked it up to prevent leaking. Now I need it out to install Gobi, but for the life of me cannot get it out. Have tried all the tricks and the little kit with a bit that is supposed to pull these things out. The screw has some play up and down, so Iím nervous about making a mess of the roof insert. But I cannot get it to budge. Canít quite fit channel locks around it, only needlenose which is no help (also the bolt head is round, derp). Have tried hammering a hex bit in but the screw metal is so soft it shreds before it can bust the loctite...

Canít get photo to load from my phone for some reason so I can try from my computer later. Was hoping this wouldnít be so difficult, running out of time before my toddler awakens from his nap haha.

Iím out of ideas!

Are those torx bits, and if so you'd you destroy them like that?

At this point it would be to just get the screw out. Gobi will come with all new hardware.

Thanks, saved the day! Even after I dremeled a huge notch it took awhile for me to muscle that thing loose - snapped a smaller flathead so I borrowed a neighbors huge flathead and needed to use channel locks to get enough torque but eventually it worked. Thanks for the assist!

Slammed a screw from my 2016 OEM rack in there for now until gobi install, looks horrendous but at least it will come out lol

If already tried that but the screw metal was so soft and it was locked in so tight the set had no chance.
