Answer: 
A grinder with a cutting wheel and a large flat head screw driver. You can use the one way driver bit as long as it is the bit that looks like a socket with a flathead screw driver inside.

Answer: 
I had to remove a couple today. If you have a grinder you can buy a cutting wheel. Just cut a groove 90 degrees to the flat portion your one way driver bit used to drive the bolt. Once you make that groove your one way driver bit can be used to take the bolt out.

Answer: 
There are a couple of things to try, but it's not always easy.
-If you happen to have or can borrow a welder (any cheapo kind will do), tack weld a piece of metal to the head, something you can grip with your hand or a wrench so you can unscrew it. Make sure you have enough room to turn it.
-Cut a slot into the head so you can use a screwdriver.

-Cut a slot into the head so you can use a screwdriver.
-Find a socket (or even a pipe) that will jam onto the sides of the head and unscrew it. Expect it to slip a lot at first but eventually it does work. Sometimes you can jam something like sandpaper between the sides of the head and socket to give it some grip. I use this method all the time to remove frozen rusted screws, or even those with some special head that requires a special tool. This was an old trick used by thieves to steal mag wheels with wheel locks.
-Using a metal chisel, put a notch on the side of the screw head, then angle the chisel a bit and hammer it to make the screw turn, following the notch round and around as the screw backs out. This works for any and every stuck screw, no matter how rusted or whatever. And of course, once you have it sticking out a bit, vice grips or a wrench makes the rest easy. Read Less

Answer: 
If the old screws are the 'one way security' type, no, that tool will not remove them. At best it will install them if your driver is slow enough. If not, it will mess them up. The screws that I used were too soft and the tool kept bouncing off of the flat surface and rounded them off. To remove the old screws, you'll have to grind them off with an angle grinder.

Not really. I didn't buy it after reading the negative reviews. Any big blade screwdriver will work, but compared to having this driver on an electric drill, it will take some effort.
If you have a socket set, find a socket that just fits over the head of the one-way screws, where the socket is grasping the sides of the head. Then you can ratchet it in. If you can only find a size that is too loose, Read More

BTW, this also works great for removing any stuck, stripped, or rusted screws from anything, even some "special" screws that are designed to keep the average person from opening some item (the cover of my microwave oven had them). All you have to do it find the right size socket to slip over the screw head. Read Less

There's a little trick to installing and removing one-way screws. If you have a socket wrench set, find a socket that will just slip over the side of the screw head. You want a tight fit. The socket grabs the sides of the screw and installs or removes it fairly easily. If you can't find the right size socket, go with a larger size and slip some sandpaper between the socket and the sides of the screw head to make a tight fit.
By the way, this trick works for ANY screw that is stuck, stripped or rusted. If you can get a socket over the sides of the screw head, it will come off. Read Less

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by This thing broke on second screw I had a little side job to do. Install two security Windows. So I bought this driver and it broke on the second screw I tried putting in. Luckily the owner of the house had one I could borrow. Don't buy this thing it's worthless!!! August 11, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by False Advertising Purchased the tool specifically because it states on the front packaging, "ONE WAY SCREW DRIVER AND REMOVER". Apparently this is not true. Unique Home Design's response to one of the questions asked states the tool is NOT to be used for removing one way screws. They are right. It will not remove one way screws. Save your money. If you predrill the holes, the small bit that comes with the security doors works just fine for installing. For removal, grind the heads off, remove the door and use vice grips to remove the screw shaft. July 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by necessary but awful I remarked that I wouldn't recommend this product, however it's 100% necessary to assemble the screen door correctly. The driver is very cheaply made, not durable and hard to use correctly. I am definitely going to return this product July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Must have! The one way screws are a must have for safety. Just make sure you predrill before using this tool. Mine is still like new after using it. July 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor design - does not work The screwdriver does not hold the grooves of the screws, whether used by hand, with a wrench, or with a drill. I ended up using a very large screwdriver with the security screws. It was very hard to get through the concrete, but at least it worked. May 17, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wow it broke on the last screw What can I say it broke on the fourth lag bolt even it was pre-drilled. Their great oneway lag bolts. Not impressed with the attachment sold by Home Depot April 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BIT WORKS WELL IF ? IF YOU WANT TO USE THEIR ONE WAY BOLTS, YOU SHOULD OR HAVE TO PURCHASE THEIR BOLT DRIVER. A BIT OVER PRICED, AND CAN WEAR QUICKLY, IF YOU DON'T PREP YOUR MOUNTING HOLES. I learned very quickly and followed the instructions closely and Pre-Drilled my mounting holes. HINT The type of window / frame makes a differance and drill through fully the lenth of the bolt. I installed 14 sets of bars all with the same driver April 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Overpriced Trash DO NOT BUY DO NOT BUY. $17.98 is to high of a price for this chunk of trash. The steel of the driver is too soft. After I drove about 3 screws in, the head no longer provided any grip and kept slipping off. December 13, 2015
