Any ideas on how to remove a stripped allen nut. the nut is rounded over so getting anything on it won't help.

What is it on? Can you get a vice grip in there to remove it? Might have to drill it out and tap new threads if they get ruined.

Allen Screw???

IF the screw is soft enough, Gently tap a torx bit into the allen.............You can also drill into the allen if need be to put it around the same size as the torx bit. Use penetrant oil to make the most of it. Force the driver to a slight angle as you attempt to loosen the screw.

If this is an allen head you should be able to get an Ez-out
that will work just tap it is and turn to the left it will get a better grip as you turn and should just come out ...... .....Good Luck
