Answer: 

Try grabbing the heads with vice grips, if you can. You can also try to jam a screwdriver into the heads to hold them and use a socket wrench on the nuts to get them off.

Ask ScooterDad: I recently bought a district custom scooter secondhand and I can't get the clamp off, tried with Allen keys won't do anything they seem stuck on, how do I take them off ?

Answer: 

If the clamp bolts are stripped, you'll have to cut them off or cut a slit in the head of the bolt and use a flathead screwdriver to try to get them out. You may need to replace the clamp. If they are just very tight, try using an allen with a different form factor, like a T-handle.
