Default removing console from brackets????

I just bought a 60/40 console for my truck, and I need to know...WHAT KIND OF TOOL DO YOU USE TO GET THE FREAKING SCREWS OUT to take it out of the mount. The person that I bought it from included the mounting bracket, and I already have a mount in my truck. So I was just gonna take the brackets off of the console and drop and screw in the console in my ranger... easier said than done. lol

Here are what the screws look like.

Alright, so I got the bracket off, and the console in the truck, but one of the screws is almost stripped now

so I guess this thing is staying in the truck. Forever. Hahaha
