2022.05.21 [Screw Rescue Report]Stripped screws on Hilux tailgate

We received an SOS message from a customer in Yachiyo City, Chiba Prefecture, regarding the stripped screws on the tailgate of their Hilux.

"I was trying to attach a part to the tailgate and ended up stripping one of the two Torx(R) screws. I heard that these screws are famous for very tight and tend to strip, so I was being cautious. The remaining screw feels like it has Threadlocker on it, making it difficult to deal with once it's stripped..."

After conducting a Screw Rescue meeting while checking the photos he provided, we urgently dispatched a set of large and small prototypes of the Neji-saurus Mogura (Prototype of Socket Screw Extractor sets).

Upon trying the tool, he reported back with joyous news:

"I made a few attempts, and despite being an amateur, I managed to extract the stripped screw successfully! I bought new screws at the hardware store and was able to attach the part. Just to be prepared for any future emergency, I'm considering purchasing the Neji-saurus (Screw Removal Pliers) and Neji-saurus Mogura (Socket Screw Extractor) as well."
