I had a little problem with this.. initially i couldnt find the right size, but when i did find it, it fit perfectly.. maybe this is your problem? I think I had to switch to metric sizes. Although, by the sounds of it, you may have reached the point of no return lol good luck.. but honestly I think you have wrong size

I am pretty sure this will work but then again i don't know how badly you tried to force the issue.. i thought i stripped mine but the metric fit right in and brought a smile to my face

They arent horrible... like I said the first one was already screwed up some how and I could tell they where stripping so I didnt try and force them...

Just make sure the allen driver is seated fully and loosen it slowly. I never even installed them coax lol I pulled the tweets off right out of the box :)
