I have used or at least attempted to use this many times. I cant say what makes the difference but on some screws its a godsend, use as instructed and the screw comes out.
On others, well nothing, It does nothing at all no matter how many times you try.
I have been trying to clear up the mess left by some pretty hopeless builders. They had a heavy duty screwdriver which they used to screw everything down right into the wood stripping all the heads as they went. However as they cocked up pretty much everything pretty much every screw has had to be removed to get to the mess left behind whatever has been screwed down, so i have now got lots of experience in removing stripped screws.
Try a thin metal drill to drill down a little way to the screw head to let the screwdriver get purchase, or use a multitool to cut a slot in the head and use a flat head screwdriver. This works nearly all the time when this kit works on about 20% of screws only.
Well maybe it would work better if the screws were not embedded in the materials but thats my experience anyway.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Andorin Didn't work at all
I was trying to remove a screw in a skirting board, in which the head was clogged up with wood filler. It did not work at all. I tried, I tried again, looked at some videos on youtube and again, and then gave up. Doesn't work.

If I could have given no stars for this product I would have done. It was very expensive but I purchased it anyway because of it's brand name, wrongly believing that it would be a good product and would do the job I needed. Well it didn't! It failed miserably. it's a complete waste of a lot of money, so don't waste yours.

I wanted to remove screws attaching metal rails to ceramic tiles on bathroom walls. The drilling end bored a hole extremely slowly. The extracting end would not engage with the hole. This waste of time resulted in screws looking worse and more difficult to extract than before.
Various online videos of the product in operation show it removing vertical screws from horizontal soft wood (so the drill can press down hard); my application had screws through metal where the drill needed to be horizontal. The claims for the product do not hint at its limitations.
