What tool is needed

I need to replace the locking track on a draw that won't open. The screws that hold it in have a square head. What type of tool is necessary to remove and replace the broken track.

Do you mean a square drive,instead of slotted or phillips? If so you can buy a driver with many asst bits that usually contain the 3 sizes of square drive bits.

Americans call them square headed and Canadians call them Robertsons.......Yes they are slightly different in size and tapered differently...Cdn robertsons do not fit american screws perfectly..will strip heads!!!! J

The Robertson (Square) design is a Canadian invention ... one of the only screws that wont fall off the end of your screwdriver

have found that often a Phillips or prince-reed may fit well enough to draw a square-head out, depending on how much torque was applied during installation --
