Door Lock Catcher Plate Philips Bit Size.

Post by ozscim » Mon Jun 04, 2018 7:35 am

Hi All,
Trying to adjust my passenger door catcher plate, but a no 4 Philips bit slips when attempting to tighten up!
Anyone know what size of bit is required, to get a good grip on the screws???
Cheers Neil.
P.S. I cannot find a No5 Philips bit listed anywhere.

Could be that its not a phillips just a straight cross head - might be worth fitting new screws anyway as they are bound to be past their best.

Philips or Posidrive? There's a difference:

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.
