When a broken, stripped, or stuck fastener just won't budge, grab one of these small tools to remove them without damaging your workpiece. However, note that these will destroy the fastener.
Insert one of these extractors into the drilled hole of a broken, rusted, or damaged fastener, and turn it with a tool such as a tap wrench, socket wrench, or pair of locking pliers to back the fastener out of the workpiece.
Remove rusted, painted-over, and rounded bolts with these small-but-powerful tools. Place one of these hollow, socket-like bolt removers onto the bolt and use a tool such as a socket wrench, standard wrench, or pair of locking pliers to turn the extractor. Left-hand spiral flutes on the inside of the bolt extractor grip the fastener to turn it. Commonly known as stud extractors, these tools can also be used to remove nuts and studs. A through-hole allows a threaded shank to pass through for access to a fastener that has been threaded on the shank.
