You know that sinking feeling you get when a bolt head snaps off as it snugs up? Well,these little grippers will lift more than just your mood. Sized specifically for smaller,more breakage-prone bolts less than 1/4" in shank diameter, they'll zip out the broken shank faster than you can say thanks. Each extractor sports two business ends: one a drill bit for boring a hole in the shank, the other an auger-like extractor that binds itself into the hole and wrenches the bolt free. The self-centering drill tip prevents wandering and allows a clean pilot hole - even on jagged surfaces. Kit includes extractors for the following bolt sizes: #5 or #6 (M3), #8 (M4), #10 or #12 (M5) and 1/4" (M6).

(1) Bolt Extractor for Bolt Size: #5 or #6 (M3)
(1) Bolt Extractor for Bolt Size: #8 (M4)
(1) Bolt Extractor for Bolt Size: #10 or #12 (M5)
(1) Bolt Extractor for Bolt Size: 1/4" (M6)

"You never see happy people buying screw extractors"
True. But, if you get this, chances are you'll be a lot happier pretty soon. The small sizes of this set complement the larger sizes I already had, and work just fine for the less catastrophic kinds of extraction jobs - you know, the ones where you didn't torque the head clean off.

Did Not Work
I tried to remove some #6 wood screws from an old cylinder phonograph bottom. The heads were rusted away from being exposed to water in a basement. The end of the screw extractor for drilling would not penetrate far enough into the screws. As a result, the other end of the extractor could not get enough grip to remove the screws.

Bolt extractor
It worked great the first time but after that it would not work. I think the end meant to drill a hole into the broken screw became dull.

Is this grabit kit made of hardened steel?
CarlD on Jun 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Alden is the manufacturer. Their website says that they are made from twice tempered M2 HSS.
Will this work on hard deck screws ?
Paul K on Mar 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not sure, if you can drill a hole into the deck screw for the screw end to bite into it might. I did not have much luck using the drill end of the extractor.
Will this remove #4 screws?
Matthew L on Dec 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hmmm.... I doubt you'd have any success with a screw that small... the Micro Grabit website says you can remove screws as small as #5, but it seems to me that's going to be pretty difficult to drill a hole in a screw that small!

If you can live with a plug, the 1/4-inch Screw Extractor that Rockler sells works fairly well, though getting the little plug to break off below the screw depends a bit on what sort of wood you're working with, and doesn't work well at all in end grain. (Or I just don't know how to use it properly!)
What's the warranty for this product? I've used it successfully a few times but now the tip broke off.
