A useful tip I heard today.

Allen Heads and Torx screws - they slip and round out often. They can be a real PITA!

Put a dab of Valve Grinding Compound on the head, then put the wrench in.
The compound's grit "bites" into the head like thousands of tiny barbs.

Haven't tried it, but it may help with a hex head that's somewhat rounded too.
