Screws

Try and get something flat under the screw head and lever it upward as you turn the screw with a driver. Hopefully the thread will bite on the upper surface and it'll come out.

plastic screw clips made to look like screws, cheap to buy and replace if you damage them so don`t be afraid to use a little force on `em

if you need replace any look at ebay item number

Any idea how I can get them out?

Slowly!

Levering, turning, pulling, whatever, they do come out eventually.

Another good idea, poorly implemented.

I replace the inner plastic screw with a short, no.6, brass woodscrew. Looks nicer (to me!), and works much better.

I always remove these with a small pick type tool or small flat blade screwdriver. Never really had any issues with them. Some times they do become a bit worn and loose so chucking a new one in is best. I don't understand what the issue is people have with them?
