Issue Description

When you take off the baseplate, it's hard to loosen the screw or remove the stripped screw.

Possible Cause

The baseplate uses anti-loose screws, tighter than ordinary ones.
When you take off the screws on the baseplate, make sure the size of the screwdriver is proper.
If the screw is stripped, stop removing the screw.
