Stuck Screws and Damaged Heads Are No Match For Gearwrench Bolt Biter Screw Extractors

Screw extractors have been around for a long time and they do a great job of getting you out of a jam. So how do make them better? Gearwrench Bolt Biter screw extractors take a shot in a couple of big ways.

Editor’s Note: Check out our article on how to use a screw extractor if you’ve never done this before.

Gearwrench Bolt Biter Screw Extractors | The Big Deal

When it comes to removing stuck fasteners, Bolt Biter is the name to look for from Gearwrench. Initially focusing on bolt extractors (hence the Bolt Biter name), we’re excited to see an expansion to screw extractors.

The main thing is a tapered side design that helps each extractor seat into damaged screw heads. Combined with side and tip cutting edges that bite in better, you end up with more consistent engagement with the fastener.

As we’ve seen with other Bolt Biter accessories, the screw extractors have a bi-directional design. If you don’t have a choice but to reuse the damaged screw or you’re dealing with an odd reverse thread screw, you’re able to use the extractor to bite down in either direction.

One other point worth noting is the metallurgy. Gearwrench uses S2 steel along with a heat treatment process that results in these extractors lasting up to 50 times longer than other designs.

Additional Highlights

  • 1/4-inch and 7/16-inch hex shaft options
  • Compatible with ratchets, wrenches, or power tools
  • Hi-vis laser markings
  • Black oxide coating
