How to remove stripped bottom left Torx screw on the PSU. Got stuck.

Upgrading logic board on iMac 27” late 2012. Everything ha been stripped off, all torx screws are out except the left bottom one on the PSU. Tried many times till it stripped off. Am stuck on that. Any idea what I need do to get this out of my way. I heard that, that particular Torx screw could have been loctited for security reason. Help as I need to get the PSU out of the way to remove the old board in order to fit the upgrade. Your wealth of knowledge on this issue will be appreciated.

However I have tried using conventional pliers and not the screw extracting pliers. Considering the head of the stripped screw is round and its position very close to the bezel, couldn’t get a very good grip. I have to buy the screw extracting plier and give it a go. However I have a suspicion that permanent glue (loctite) might have been used to prevent taking out the psu, all other torx screws were taking out without any issue except that stubborn one. Please don’t give up on me. See me through this experience. You are all awesome.

Thanks so much Erik. I have tried the rubber band technics and it didn’t work for, since the torx screw has been stripped the T10 torx used was just keep turning round and round. Now am left with the other options - glue, rotary tool to cut across the head and use plat screw driver. Shall let you know the outcome. I appreciate your help. Thanks.
