Journeyman: Great tool and informative video, I'm going to buy a set of these ASAP! Thumbs up!

4nuk8r: I never use EZouts because they spread whats left of the bolt in the threads and lock it tighter. Just grind it flat and center punch it EXACTLY on center and then keep drilling bigger sizes until there is just a wire left in the threads that can be unscrewed/peeled-out. It's super nice to use left-hand rotation drill bits because it MAY just spin the bolt out (but don't count on it). Rounded bolt heads : If you got a hammer beat a nice mushroom on the head and then beat a tough (black impact) socket over it. If it's in aluminum, use a big ass oxy-acetylene torch to head the head FAST, mushroom it, and then FAST cool it with water, beer, piss, etc. "A penny saved is a penny earned" - don't buy special tools when regular ones will do, because then special ones cost money to buy, to safeguard from "borrowing" or theft, and to pay for the space they take up in toolbox/shop/truck. You are welcome.

Shelley Prince: Turbo Sockets-no kidding. A great idea. Thanks for the tip!

jusride7: Aloha! First time I ever seen these boys! Heading to Sears!

Hellokinni: Easy to get in USA but ... Canadian stores suck.

john strong: Nice I didn't know these existed I should have no problem with my nuts from now on

Jerry Gaucin: Thanks, i'm fixing my kids bike and I can't remove the nut, it's driving me nuts!!

Christopher Rowe: Nice, thank you

Amanda Glenn: What is the name of set exactly please

Aldo Avanto: Whoo hoo!! Thank you Sir. Exactly what I need. I'm working on a used Grand Cherokee I bought and wouldn't you know it, I found a bolt that the socket just slips, but this will work for me. Thanks a million!

Slick Willy: Didnt work for me. Bolt is rounded out and tried it but it seems like its just getting rounded out more lol maybe im not doing it right

Daniel H.: Cool, I need something like this. Thanks for the vid !

Jeffrey S: I tried vice grips but they didn't work

dark chocolate: Will it work on Torx heads???? I rounded out my Cylinder head bolts, with some crappy universal sockets I got at O'Reilly. Marker, PowerTorques. Hopefully I can get them loose so I can continue with my head gasket replacement next.

Thomas Dowd: Yeah I got one rounded off on the bottom of a vas tank so torching it aint an option for me lol

t dub: My o2 sensor seized up, and rounded badly. I think it requires 7/8 socket to get it off, but all I see available are smaller sizes. Does anyone know where they sells bigger turbo sockets sizes or does harbor freight 22$ set good for 7/8 size

Fake Man: Thanks man, Nice video.

John Smith: Stripped my oil pan bolt thought I would never get it off. One of these sockets and it was off in 2 seconds. Awesome tool

Markus McCraney: Thank you so much! Don't know why I didn't think of this sooner

Justin Hardy: Thanks so much, man. Headed to Sears now to grab a pair. 

2035jim: Worked great. Glad I found your video.

2035jim: Going to have to go pick up a set of these in the morning. Trying to repiar some stuff on my wood stove and two 1/2 inch bolts rounded offf on me. They're soaking in penetrating oil right now. Hopefully these will help do the trick. Thanks for posting the video.

ObeyHipHop: thanks for the vid, just what i need to remove my struts

Ronén Björkquist: mmkay?

wtbm123: As long as the caliper bolt is sticking out far enough to get the socket on it will grab it .

vipertxt: He broke the lug nut off

wtbm123: Cool, glad it helped

Pam Copling: Use a hacksaw.

wtbm123: Thanks for watching

usmanakamani: thanks alot :)

Don Charlito: Thanks!

wtbm123: Anything that has a rome for the socket to go over they should grab. Thanks for watching.

Ohmz27: They're ace haha, like Kieth said, called Irwin Bolt Grip sockets in UK. Unfortunately I didn't have a replacement sump plug bolt, had to put the stripped bolt back on - these sockets only grip for one direction really - and thats to loosen. Managed to torque the bolt up enough though with a regular socket, went for a nice blast - can't be close to 30nm but no oil leaks =D.

Fred Gaines: Those are some handy tools to have. I am the King of rounding bolts off!!

wtbm123: @PcTechFreddie Thanks for watchin

wtbm123: Hope you have good luck with them . I love mine.

Keith Mass: Found out here in the UK search for Irwin Bolt Grip Nut Remover :)

Kevin Adair: Great video Terry about how to get your nuts off! (lol)

Lori Favela: can u use them on torx bit stripped bolt?

wtbm123: Thanks for watching and commenting

William Seibert: i have a bolt rounded off on a honda TRX250x, a brake caliper bolt. i have doused it with PB blaster and hammered on another socket, ended up breaking the socket... i think my next approach is to get a nut and weld it to the rounded bolt. hopefully the 6011 rods are enough to hold it...

AsiAzzy: Of course it's a useful tool (if you have it). But for most nuts that are not recessed. a rounded nut will be a bit of a headache but will not halt your work. (as it is with a screw where you have to have some sort of extractor, reverse drill bits, etc - otherwise you can spend an entire day and ruining the piece that is stuck into and still not get it out)

FearArDoiteain: I have a damaged hex brake caliper bolt. Your socket needs some flat to grab on doesn't it? There is a you tube video that shows your type of extractor removing a caliper hex bolt. Is that possible or is this guy blowing smoke?

David Roberts: You sir are a saint for this.

wtbm123: Some are rated for impact ,but most are not rated for anything but hand tools. So I can not say thery will hold up ,but they may

wtbm123: Thank You for Watching

wtbm123: Yes mine was $170. But Irwin and sears has basically the same thing ,a bit smaller set but around 30 bucks.

Sami Haque: mine came out. 1)use a dremel to cut a deep line in the broken bolt. 2) use propane torch to heat it. 3) spray pb blast when its cool. 4) use a screw driver to turn the bolt. took my two tries but i got it out! good luck

southbay281: I tried that socket, torch, vice grips, smaller sockets slammed in with a hammer on a caliper bracket bolt. Any ideas without grinding,cutting or drilling . It's a 02 mustang front psngr 15mm with a rounded bolt head.

wtbm123: They are great. Thanks for watching
