Ken Johnson: very good video.I learn something every day!

John Meadows: Thanks

wafrederick: I have several sets of them including a deepwell set.Saved my butt a lot removing rounded off,rusty and corroded nuts and bolts a lot.This includes exhaust manifold bolts which a regular socket will not fit on anymore.I have one Matco set that looks like a regular socket and are made for removal of rusty and corroded,rounded off bolts.It does work.

Sales Cow: A brake caliper bracket on my car has rounded bolts on it. I was planning on grinding them off but decided to check Youtube first. I'm going to try this instead! Thanks for taking your time to post this :-)

Carol B: your camera guy is a jack ass

Slappy Fistwad: here's my god damn solution:
1) take a new hex nut, stick it on the bolt
B) Then, weld that sucker on the bolt.
4) let it cool down
5) get a impact gun and go to town!

Damien Daragon: Would this work on an anchor bolt at the back of a Vw T5 van? The spline nuts found in the back of a panel, the last one is totally rounded out!

Andrei Be: Hey, got a 12mm bolt stuck in my break caliper, so I dont have much room to work with besides whats in my wheel well. I got one of these kits and i try to grab the nut, but it wont grip, any idea? The bolt head is rounded off

GraveD1gger: They didn't work for me just kept eating at the bolt head and falling off

Justin Fisher: ok i have a rounded headbolt last bolt on head on v6 engine, it has rounded if I used a 12point socket on well,I went to advance auto bought there kit,did not work it's a 12mm,head bolt used a breakerbar,pb blaster no budge,please give me some ideas or better rounded bolt extractor to get I need 12mm,metric I have no impact any ideas PLEASE help me

Carlito Brigante: thanks buddy

Alex Carrington: This is the best way. Trust me. I spent 2 hours trying with torches and everything i could try. I purchased the turbo socket set and in 1 min of trying it was off. With ease! Lol I didn't even have to use a breaker bar.

Tim R: I use one of these from Harbor Freight yesterday and it worked so good I thought I broke the head of the bolt off. Very rounded over10mm bolt on a engine water outlet.

MostlymoparIH: I got a set for lug nuts when I was working on a tow truck but I never had to use them always got the lug nuts off. I did use them when the customer had lost the socket for their lock lug nuts. They work great. TFS

James Butera: they're crap they don't work. I wasted 31.00 on a set it just strips it further..don't buy it

The Car Doctor: I have been meaning to grab a set of those. Thanks for the video sir!

Ray Corn: Thanks for the video. These are  going to by added to my tool box!!

DUGZY BONEZ: Sweet dude just ran into a problem with my huffy bike my front tire nuts are stripped .I ended up with a flatwith a tree cork on my tire.So tried taking it out with vice grip and wrench no good!! :-) but when I typed in how to take out stripped screws or some thing it fell on your page :-) but u explain it simple indeed :-) great tool to have did not have one but now I well :-)

Naziyr Ruwack: Thank you for this video. I stripped the bolt attempting to take off my EGR valve. I bought some Dura-Grip sockets, but they didn't work.
I'll look for these turbo sockets

BORFU: I almost completed a full front brake job. I worked for over 4 hours trying to remove one last bolt from my caliper bracket so I can replace my rotor. I tried vice grips, sockets, ratchets, spraying liquid wrench on it, heating it, and I even went to Home Depot to buy an expensive impact wrench. Nothing worked. I guess the jerkoff that tightened this thought it would be funny before selling it. Tomorrow, I'm going to return that crap to Home Depot and head over to Auto Zone to buy this item. Everyone is giving it good reviews, even on the Autozone site.
