 Crosshead Screws
As some of these small, but important screw get old, they can seize up due to oxidization (rust), which can make them impossible to undo, if any of the thread is accessible for cleaning, then it is advisable first. 
 Then squirt a little penetrating oil onto as much of the screw is possible, then use the correct type of crosshead screwdriver, there are several, but make sure the one you choose is a tight fit. 
 If it rounds inside the crosshead, then using a cutting tool, or a junior hacksaw if you can get it to fit, cut your self a nicce deep groove into the head of the screw, and use a flathead screwdriver, you'll get more leverage with that.
 If all else fails, grind the head off, and treat it as a stud.
