Remove Corroded or Damaged Lug Nuts with GearWrench Sockets

Remove Rounded, Damaged Lug Nuts with GearWrench Sockets

The square drive with hex base makes Bolt Biter Lug Nut Extraction Sockets compatible with an impact gun, ratchet, wrench or pliers.

Building on the success and popularity of the original Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets launched in 2019, GEARWRENCH unveiled the latest addition to the family — Bolt Biter Lug Nut Extraction Sockets. The new additions use the same technology that made Bolt Biter a hit but now apply it specifically to removing worn or damaged lug nuts, the company said.

“We saw the success of the initial launch and people were immediately asking for more, so we listened and took another step further,” said Jarrett Wolf, product manager at GEARWRENCH. “The GEARWRENCH Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets allow auto techs, MRO techs, and DIYers to remove and reuse corroded, weathered, rounded and/or damaged lug nuts with ease.” 

Bolt Biter Lug Nut Extraction Sockets feature a tapered entry that makes it easy to seat on a damaged fastener without hammering, and the “minus-sized” sockets are designed to grip lug nuts that are worn down substantially. The bi-directional design generates five times the gripping force of other extraction sockets and allows techs to not just remove fasteners but reuse them as well. The sockets also have a deep design to reach the deepest lug nuts that others can’t. 

The square drive with hex base makes Bolt Biter Lug Nut Extraction Sockets compatible with an impact gun, ratchet, wrench or pliers. The sockets are made from chrome molybdenum for 10 times the impact life of competitors, while the black oxide finish provides superior corrosion resistance. They save techs time in getting the job done and money by lasting longer than the rest.

Bolt Biter Lug Nut Extraction Sockets are available in 10 individual sockets or two sets, a five-piece 1/2-in.-inch drive set (86070) and a 10-piece 1/2-in.-inch drive set (86071).
