Flathead (2) Tue, Mar 24, 2009
Attention screwers of the world (if there's a better way to say that, I couldn't think of it):  Please stop using flathead/slotted screws.  They serve no purpose that Phillips-head screws can't, and they're stupidly difficult to both install and remove.  Death to flathead screws! #products

Agreed.  My fear in doing this though is that flat head screwdrivers would go away and they are quite useful for getting out stripped phillips-head screws as well as opening paint cans.

A world without flathead screws doesn't necessarily mean a world without flathead screwdrivers.  I agree that the only way to open a paint bucket is with a flathead screwdriver.  But as for removing stripped Phillips-heads, pliers do the trick.
