Question: How can I remove a stripped hex bolt on my inline skate wheels?
Answer: 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 may be able to remove it using a regular flat head screwdriver in the groove you have cut.
