Floor Screw

It looks like I have a floor screw backing out. It is lifting and starting to tear the linoleum. Has anyone seen this? Any ideas on repairing?

I'm thinking I may need to make a small cut to access the head of the screw. At least then I could tighten it again. However, I would have to glue the linoleum down again.

Any advice will help. Thanks!

Had that happen in my '05 Mobile Suites--cut a slit on top of the bump and used a Phillips screwdriver to retighten. Did not need to glue linoleum back down, it laid flat again. Be very careful when cutting the slit--use very sharp Exacto type knife and no longer than absolutely necessary to see the screw.

There is a sealer you can get to put on the cut after you are finished. Will bond the cut and prevent dirt or discoloration getting in it.

Had the same thing in a carpeted area. I used Loctite on the screw to try to prevent reoccurrence.
