How can a stripped inline skate hex bolt be removed?

Question: How can a stripped inline skate hex bolt be removed?
Answer: To remove a stripped hex bolt (usually used for wheel axles on any inline skate or for the toe stopper on an inline figure skate) on your inline skates try cutting a thin slot or groove across the middle of the top/hole of the hex bolt using a Dremel or similar cutting tool. Then you should be able to remove it using a regular flat head screwdriver.
