GEARWRENCH Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets

GEARWRENCH Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets Help Remove Stubborn Fasteners

The tapered internal flutes of incrementally sized Bolt Biter sockets fit snugly over stripped or corroded fasteners, gripping even the most rounded shapes to turn and remove them.

Difficulty removing, weathered, rounded or damaged fasteners can keep techs from moving on to the next phase of a job, costing time and money. GEARWRENCH developed its new Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets to provide an uncommonly simple solution to this common problem.

GEARWRENCH Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets don’t cut and dig into rounded fasteners using sharp one-direction spiral design blades as other extraction sockets do. Instead, the tapered internal flutes of incrementally sized Bolt Biter sockets fit snugly over stripped or corroded fasteners, gripping even the most rounded shapes to turn and remove them. Because Bolt Biter sockets grip instead of cutting and digging, there are five major benefits:

  1. The socket is simply placed onto the rounded fastener; no hammering onto the fastener is needed.
  2. It is much easier to disengage the socket from the fastener once the fastener is removed.
  3. The fastener is not destroyed during the process and can be re-installed using the same Bolt Biter socket, especially important if the fastener is a non-standard part.
  4. Bi-directional design which allows for user to not only remove a damaged, rounded or weathered fastener, but also reuse it.
  5. Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets have up to 10 times the useable life of cutting-type extraction sockets, which quickly become dull and unusable.

Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets can be used with both hand and power tools. They incorporate a square drive with a hex outer shape for easy use with an impact gun, ratchet, wrench or pliers.

GEARWRENCH Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets will be available individually and in eight-, 15- or 28-piece sets beginning in early 2019.
