Kryptonite wheelboltz stuck

I'm trying to take off my wheelboltz to change a tire, and its completely stuck. I've tried tightening and loosening upside down, but it won't loosen and is stuck on my bike as is. Let me know any suggestions to remove this wheelboltz.

You are stuck, even Superman can’t get them off.

Try giving them a few light taps with a small hammer while the bike is upside down.

I know this is an old thread. However when I encountered the problem, I used a Dremmel with a thin disc to cut the tab nestled in the dropout space. Better tha doing damage to the front fork.
