Tool Tuesday: GEARWRENCH Bolt Biter Sockets

Ever try to get a rounded bolt off while working on a project? On this week’s Tool Tuesday we take a look at GEARWRENCH‘s Bolt Biter extraction sockets.

Nothing creates a speedbump quite like a rusted, rounded, worn-down, or frozen fastener. Without the right extraction tools, even savvy pros struggle to remove stubborn fasteners easily, and just as often have to replace the fastener altogether. No longer do you have to hope and pray it’ll loosen with a pair of vice grips.

GEARWRENCH listened and talked with auto mechanics and industrial techs to learn what they hated about existing extraction sockets when they were producing the Bolt Biter series. The Bolt Biter redefines extraction and solves all of their frustrations.

Their bi-directional design allows users to remove and reuse worn (rounded), rusted, damaged, or stubborn fasteners with ease, saving time at every turn with up to five times more gripping force. In addition, their patented tapered flutes allow for easy seating on damaged fasteners and also have a deep design to reach the deepest lug nuts that others can’t.

A rounded fastener is hardly ever the same size it started with and that can create issues for other extraction tools that have a more one-size-fits-all catalog. GEARWRENCH’s Bolt Biter sockets come with minus-size options.

Minus-size options work on heavily worn or damaged fasteners that standard sizes can’t grip and fit a wider range of damaged fasteners. Additionally, their tapered entry design lets the Bolt Biter disengage from fasteners easily without the need for hammers or mallets.

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.
