Now, we’ve all been there before, a rounded-off, rusted-tight, or painted-over bolt can leave us all a little red in the face. And no matter what you do, it doesn’t seem to budge. So how do you remove that bolt when your usual tools just can’t get a grip? Well, that’s where Hanson’s Bolt Extractors come in.
Well, these bolt extractors bite into the head of a stripped or stubborn bolt by using a spiral design. This design provides you with the grip you need to extract even the most stubborn bolt. Keep in mind, that these extractors will only work on bolts that still have a head— even if those heads are worn completely round or painted so much their original pattern is missing.
The Hanson bolt extractor’s design works with all types of tools—they can be used with socket wrenches, flat wrenches, or impact wrenches, making these extractors handy to have around in case of emergency. They’re also made from carbon steel, which means that these extractors are going to last a long time and hold up to a lot of wear and tear. Whether you need a full kit or individual bolt extractors, we’ve got you covered.
Hanson bolt extractors are specifically designed to remove those hard-to-get bolts. With their reverse-spiral design, they cut into the bolt, providing maximum gripping power along with quick and easy removal. To use one of these extractors just follow these simple steps.
Screw extractors like our Proto Screw Extractors are used on bolts, screws, or studs that have had the head either completely broken off or worn so badly that your Hanson bolt extractor can’t get a grip on it. So, how does this work? These screw extractors are made to bite into a drilled hole in the middle of a seized bolt, screw, or stud. The Proto screw extractors are durable, easy to use, and heat-treated for strength—but be careful! Even though they are strong, on the slim chance you break off an extractor in a stuck bolt, you’ll have a tough time getting it back out. To help prevent breakage there are numbers stamped onto the sides of the extractor. These numbers show what drill bit size you should be using with each extractor
Another option for removing a bolt is the Viking Drill and Tool Hi-Carbon Steel Spiral Screw and Pipe Extractors. These Spiral Extractors from Viking are tough! Made from forged, hi-carbon steel, these extractors will cut through even the toughest of bolts. The spiral shape gives these extractors the ability to remove broken bolts, screws, and pipes without causing damage to the threads.
Don’t forget to use penetrating oil, and maybe even some heat from a torch if it’s safe to do so. (click here to read more on Bernzomatic Torches).
What if you have to remove a rusted or stuck nut, but not the bolt? Well, you’re in luck! As long as your nut is easily accessible, the best option is to split the nut in half, and Performance Tool’s Heavy-Duty Nut Splitter or Gearwrench’s universal nut cracker is what you need for this job. Think of these as a compact wood-splitter. On one side it has a hardened chisel point, which is what will be doing the splitting. On the other, it has an internal bolt that will apply pressure to the nut the more you turn it. These heavy-duty nut splitters are sturdy and stable, plated to resist corrosion, and sure to last. Using these tools are fairly simple:
And if this tool can’t get the job done, don’t forget about the Enerpac Hydraulic Nut Cutters.
