That's good news. Sorry, I thought you said you had good quality tools or I would have suggested that first. Especially hex keys, the cheap ones just round out themselves and then your hardware. You might as well attempt to remove the screw from the crank, worst case scenario is you mess it up. It's useless the way it is rright now so no big deal. You'll probably have better luck if you heat it up to loosen the lock-tite. Seriously though, it's a very small screw to attempt to remove. I can only think a reverse drill bit will work if it's even possible.

No worries I Thought the new allen keys I had purchased before were higher quality but i was mistaken as they rounded out aswell and very easily but the newest set i bought worked perfectly, I am going to attempt to remove the screw from the cank, I'll go to my local hardware store today and get an easy out and see what happens, like you said worst thing that'll happen is ill mess it up lol :P thanks for everyone's help
