Remove the Guesswork in Fastener Extraction
Fasteners vary widely in composition and hardness. That’s why IRWIN has many different products for removing damaged fasteners and parts.
Each extraction tool is specifically designed to take into account the material involved in order to make removal easier. The guidelines below will help
you choose the tool that will deliver the optimal results for your particular situation.
Guide for Using Screw Extractors
Drill a hole in the threaded part or fastener to be removed. Drill deep enough for the extractor to grip without bottoming out. For best results, use
a left-handed drill bit. Insert the extractor and turn with a wrench or drive tool.
