Some Tips For Detaching Worn Out Screws And Bolts

The main factor why the bolts or screws are worn hard to remove is due to the lack of grip between the head of the bolt and the tip of the screwdriver. To fix this, you can use rubber bands The rubber band here is useful as an elastic base that adds friction force between the tip of the screwdriver and the bolt head. Aside from that, you may also need to check out the trusted ball screw repair service, whenever your ball screws can be repaired instead of being replaced with the new ones, that will usually cost you more money.

Cover the tip of the screwdriver with the rubber band as shown, then use a screwdriver to open the bolt with a little pressure. The elasticity of the rubber band will help provide friction and fill the bolt head cavity so that it extends the contact area.

Use a rubber band that is slightly wide so that it can enlarge the contact area between the tip of the screwdriver and the bolt head. All kinds of rubber bands can be used, but for maximum results use a strong rubber band that can break.

But this simple trick only applies to bolts or screws that are not too dragged, because the grip style produced by rubber is also not too strong.

Besides the trick, the next trick only applies if the head of the screw or bolt protrudes from the surface of the field. If the bolt head sinks or flattens the surface of the field, then this trick cannot be used. This trick uses a drill head to grip the bolt or screw head.

The trick, loosen the chuck or drill head until the head of the bolt/screw can enter, then close it until the bolt head is gripped tightly by the drill head. Then run the drill counterclockwise to open the screw.

This trick can be used as long as there are parts of the screw or bolt that can be grabbed or the chuck/drill head and screw head diameter do not exceed the chuck diameter.
