removing trim from glued rubber floor

My floor does not have plywood under the rubber, glued onto the floor.
Various methods to unscrew trim failed: manual screw driver, power drill, even screw extractors (no likey screwheads ).
My BOSS had great idea: pry up trim and use crowbar to pull out screws/trim.
Worked very well for us.
Now to get a scraper for the rubber.

Mine were screwed down every 6" , not a foot like yours. We would get one end and bend it till it broke from the screw. Then do the same on the next piece and then pry the screws out like you did. Most of the screw heads were too fubar to even think about using the correct tool. I had a whole pile of 6" long pieces.
