I recently took down a metal gazebo on my deck. The 2.5" deck screws that held the gazebo in place were stripped and the tops were rusted. I tried every tool I had to remove them and they wouldn't even budge. I was afraid they'd never come out and I'd have to shave them down. After ordering the 4-piece Grabit tool, I read the instructions and within 5 minutes I had extracted all of the deck screws. I was overjoyed!!!

After that, I immediately went inside the house to extract two very small & stripped screws that were in a bedroom wall. It took two turns of stripping and extracting the screws, and then Viola! Worked again!

Best $20 I ever spent on a tool!

TIPS:
A. Use eye protection and gloves. When drilling out the screw, it generates a lot of small metal slivers which can fly out and could get into you eyes. They're small enough to stick into your skin as well, so wear heavy gloves. Make sure you clean-up afterwards or you could step on them.
B. Read the directions. I think some of the other people who reviewed this product didn't read the directions and just tried to muscle it (hence the melted extractor bit).
C. Go S-L-O-W. Use a variable speed drill and go as slow as possible. Also, set the torque on your drill to the most powerful setting so it doesn't "click" when it meets resistance.

Good luck!

Not sure what the others that gave this a bad review had problems with. I have owned dozens of other models screw removers, and have never had a single one work, sometimes I had one that would get out 1 screw out of 12.

I have used this set 9 times now, and it worked all 9 times saving me countless headaches and a ton of money from not having to replace entire parts because a screw was rounded off or stripped.

I used this set on 4 sizes of phillips head screws, 2 sizes of hex screws and 2 sizes of slotted screws and worked flawlessly on every type. Maybe the others not using it right? You are supposed to "drill" out the head with one end of the tool, turn it over and then use the removal side, money every time I tried it anyway.

This thing grabs so tight that even my Dewalt impact driver will not let go of the stripped screw even when it is "impacting" to get out those stubborn long screws or rusted in screws.

I was a little skeptical about this, but had a broken bolt that I needed to extract with few other options. I paid $20 at a local hardware store for a set of two. These things work like a gem! That bolt came right out with no problem when I really thought it wouldn't budge. One note to help out, I found it hard to get the drill bit side to stay centered on the bolt when starting. Using a good center punch might be helpful just to get the bit to stay centered. Overall, I am impressed, these are going on the list for stocking stuffers to friends and family next year.

I used this to remove six machine screws from my old car. All six were painted over and stuck fast. On the first three I removed the paint, then tried everything I could think of to get them out, but to no avail. They ended up all chewed up, and their state prompted me to order this product. The second three I left completely alone until the product arrived, and it's one of those that you see me removing in the video. That's why I appear to be working on a perfectly good screw - I know that nothing else will work.

The screws were stuck so tight that my drill couldn't remove them, so I used a wrench to manually apply the force once the hole had been drilled and the second bit was in place. With later screws I didn't even attempt to use the drill for the second part/removal step, I just held the bit in place with my fingers and went straight to the wrench.

Having removed six screws the bit looks to be in perfect condition and can be used again.

I was skeptical that this tool would work as advertised.
I am happy to report, that I successfully pulled 5 broken, 3 inch long deck screws from their tomb.
Worked Great !!!!!!!!!
Anyone that has ever put down decking screws knows that you can strip them badly.
Removal was simple - first burnish the screw with one end, and then flip the tool and use the extractor end.
You'll be happy you purchased these bits.

NOTE: When you use the extractor end, put straight, solid pressure on it and go slow. Too fast and you could spin out of it.

First time I used it to extract a broken bolt and the bit broke, lodged firmly inside. Created more work for me, a simple task now made complicated as I could not drill the broken bit out as it was harder then the drill bit I had. Wouldn't dare use it again.

This kit works astonishingly well.

My first chance to use it was on my daughter's Kia. I was putting in a new ignition coil when the small hardened bolt snapped off, leaving just a small, uneven stub sticking out about 1/4 inch from the valve cover housing where it goes. I was dreading having to replace the whole housing when I remember I had this tool.

In less than 5 minutes, the broken stub was out -- cleanly and smoothly with absolutely no damage to the housing. I've tried other products with little or no success. In several cases, I've ruined whatever it was that had the broken bolt stuck in it. Not this time, this time I was home free in a minute or two.

Tips:

#1. The instructions don't include pictures, and it took me a few minutes to realize that with each bit one tip is for drilling a small recess into the top of the damage bolt and the other is for torquing into that hole once it has been made.

#2. GO SLOW, and with LIGHT pressure. The biggest mistake you can make (other than using the drill in forward rather than reverse) is to fail to align the drill portion with the center of the broken bolt. The bolt surface will be uneven so don't press into it. Position the drill right above it and start it spinning, then gently bring the tip of the bit into contact and let it make its own hole right in the center. Once you've got it started, you can add a little pressure but take your time. Make the hole good and deep. Then when you flip the bit and use the extractor side, it will astonish you with how well it bites right in and out comes your bolt.

#3. Reverse, reverse, reverse. Both the drilling part and the removing part must be done with the drill in reverse.
