Hi @aditisoul,

 

You can try running it under some water to hopefully loosen it up. Our Support team may also be able to help. 

 

There is also a tool for thumbscrews: https://shop.gopro.com/accessories-2/the-tool-thumb-screw-wrench-plus-bottle-opener/ATSWR-301.html

 

Best,

You can use a screwdriver. The screw head is accessible.

A very handy device for tightening and unscrewing thumbscrews is the GoPro - The Tool

It's cheap and is well made.


As an added bonus, it even has a bottle opener on it!
