This product works as advertised. Various sizes for various problems. The easyouts will work if a little common sense is used while removing sheared bolts. Lubricant (penetrating) should be used as well as not brute forcing them. Steady pressure is better than jerky motions that can shear the tool. Recommended.

Nice set, and seemed to be good quality. Ordered these to take care of an issue I had with an air compressor in a very remote area where no stores were available to buy these type of tools. They worked perfectly. Needed a lot of torque to get out a broken valve, and I was worried that perhaps the quality of extractors would not hold, but it did, and worked as needed. (I bought an over-sized crescent wrench to put on a lot of torque, and it held beautifully. If the extractor would have been prone to fail, it would have failed on this job.) You can spend a lot more, but for my very occasional use, this was a good investment. I doubt I will ever need to buy anything better.

This is my first time using this type of product. The radio antenna on my truck snapped off at the threaded adapter and half of the adapter was stuck inside the antenna housing. To replace that part would have been $40. For $11 I thought I'd give this a try and it worked...once I was able to drill a hole into the adapter piece to get the extractor started. There were no instructions on the packaging, so I first tried to drill the extractor itself into the adapter. That went nowhere. Once I drilled a small hole with a regular drill bit, it came out with the extractor immediately. I did notice some very slight damage to the tip of the extractor after all my previous drilling efforts, but it still worked. Had there been any instructions at all, the process probably would have taken 2 mins tops. I'm happy with the set and will use them again.

They are well made and great quality. I feel like they deliver more torque to the bolt than cheap mass-market screw extractors.

This is one of several types of extractors and you should try them all. This type squeeses the broken bolt even tighter in it's hole but covers a larger grip area. The square extractor type covers only the top edge of the hole drilled in the broken bolt, covering a very small area but has a much firmer bite after hammering it into the hole. The key to any extraction is to 1)drill through the CENTER OF THE BOLT 2)IT'S ENTIRE LENGTH! This relieves pressure equally on the bolt. These extractors are not 100% successful but it's a first step. The 100% successful way is to heat the area AROUND the bolt (DO NOT HEAT THE BOLT!) with intense heat as FAST as you can using an oxygen/acetelyne torch. The heat expands the surrounding area AWAY from the broken bolt and the bolt will unscrew with ease. 100%. Do NOT use a butane torch-it will heat the surrounding area and the bolt at the same time.

I've owned many similar extractors in the past, and the essential differences were brands, sizes and degree of taper. I've had successes, and a number of failures that I had always attributed to not having the right size. I found having a complete set of these no more helpful than owning the handful I already had.

After these failed to help me, I ended up buying an Alden 8430P Pro Grabit Broken Bolt and Damaged Screw Extractor 3 Piece Kit. It was slightly more expensive than this one at the time I bought it, but prices fluctuate. The price difference was not enough to justify buying this one first, and the other only if this one failed to work. I'd suggest buying the Alden first. It might not work for every screw for every user, but no product will.

I don't mean to imply that this product is inferior to other products of this design. If you've used traditional extractors, you can expect to get the results you expect. Not all failures will be because of the tool's design. People tend not to give bad reviews to products when they blame the situation. But user error rate also affects the likelihood that you will have the same problem. In my case "it was only because the specific situation didn't let me...." I can still blame the tool for lacking versatility, the ability to be used in certain tight spots, and with certain types of stripped heads.

When they work they work. When they don't they don't. Still a good last attempt tool to try before drilling it out and retapping. Good luck. May the wrench gods rain blessings down upon you!

Had to clean the spark plug on my riding mower which has the snowblower attached to it. That plug was in real tight and while trying to gently take it out it snapped below the nut. Turning over the engine blew out any ceramic that fell into the engine but I was stuck with the shell of the plug half way out the hole.

After watching Youtube and how one guy with a similar problem over came it with these tools I went for it and bought a set. These worked brilliantly, using a socket wrench and the double female socket attachment from a distributor wrench I managed to remove the remainder of the spark plug and install the new one. Was a little worried it might snap after reading some of the comments, nice and easy does it and it will get the job done.
