    if you have some torx bits hammer one in around the same size of hex, then remove with ratchet works every time for me failing that dremel a slot and remove with flat blade driver

    works for me also whenever I've had the odd one or to round off.

    From a manufactures point of view.
    We do not recommend hammering screws
    This isn't to suggest it doesn't work, it does void warranty on parts when things are hammered..

    I am not sure how much loctite you used but use less next time It doesn't take much loctite and once those bolts are tight they don't seem to loosen off.

    Thank you and we wouldn't void warranty unless the hammer affected our part
