Building on the success and popularity of the original Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets launched last year, GEARWRENCH is unveiling the latest addition to the family — the Bolt Biter lug-nut extraction sockets.
The new tool use the same technology that made Bolt Biter a hit but now apply it specifically to removing worn or damaged lug nuts.
“The GEARWRENCH Bolt Biter extraction sockets allow auto techs, MRO techs, and DIYers to remove and reuse corroded, weathered, rounded, and/or damaged lug nuts with ease,” said Jarrett Wolf, product manager at GEARWRENCH.
Bolt Biter lug-nut extraction sockets feature a tapered entry that makes it easy to seat on a damaged fastener without hammering, and the “minus-sized” sockets are designed to grip lug nuts that are worn down substantially. The bi-directional design generates five times the gripping force of other extraction sockets and allows techs to not just remove fasteners but reuse them as well. The sockets also have a deep design to reach the deepest lug nuts that others can’t.
The square drive with hex base makes this Bolt Biter tool 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.
Bolt Biter lug-nut extraction sockets are available in 10 individual sockets or two sets, a five-piece half-inch drive set (86070) and a 10-piece half-inch drive set (86071).
