Bottom screw got stripped, I do have a tri screwdriver set, I have tried the super glue and the rubber band method. I don't believe drilling is an option for this. Any advice?

Another trick that's worked for me at least once is scratching a groove across the top of the screw (right to the outside edges), that you can then use a flat head screwdriver on. I think I did my scratching with an old Swiss army knife, but whatever you've got that works.

2-component epoxy glue works better than super glue but it takes 24 hours to harden out.
One very ugly method is to place your soldering iron on the screw long enough until it melts the plastic around it.
