Which way did you turn it? And there's nothing you can do unless you drill it out or force a larger Allen key into it with a hammer

Allen key was too small then so its rounded it off. What size is the Allen key?? Stem bolts should be 6mm

Get a 7mm and a hammer and wgack that in and then order a new stem bolt

use the same size alen key or smaller, then get a piece of rubber (maybe a fat rubberband) and put it in the stem bolt then put you're alen key over it and then un tighten it. this will create alot of friction causing you to undo the bolt! look it up on youtube if you need help smile

Stem bolts can also be 1/4" if they're American stems, meaning he probably used the wrong size allen key if it is a 1/4"

Found out was using the wrong Allen key it takes a metric 6, I was using a 3/8th's I think.

Oh and it you destroyed the tool no worries, get a dremel and sand the end off to expose a flatter and newer part.
