Had a rounded drain plug. Tried many different tools, nothing else worked. Used boltgrip and it took longer to lift the car and get under it, than it was to remove the rounded bolt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Steve The bolt remover was stripped
I bought one today and I stripped the tool first off. It didn't loosen the bolt at all and I'm out $30.

Purchased this to attempt to remove several bolts from my wife's car that the prior owner or their mechanic worked on with a single tool of a plier. So stripped that I had little encouragement. Well to my surprise they all were able to be removed with ease.

Definitely came in handy when old bolts on an old car were being striped. I know i will use this on more than one occasion.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shibemw Kept slipping off on lawnmower
I bought this kit for use to pull out rusted solid rounded off lawnmower engine bolts. I tried several times to get bolt off but socket would not stay gripped to the bolt to break it free. I wish I could take this set back and get my money back because if this kit cannot work on some averaged sized lawnmower engine bolts, I cannot expect them to work anywhere else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jimmy threetimes great tool!
front hub removal on jeep wrangler. prior owner was kind enough to round off a crazy 13mm bolt that holds on hub. if you've replaced u joint or bearings on wrangler or cherokee you know what i mean. penetrating oil for a few days prior, heat for an hour, etc etc. still couldn't get a grip, pounded on a 12mm, then an 11mm.... no grip...went to autozone for inspiration, saw the bolt-grip kit, spent $25. took the 9/16 size, banged it on the stump if what was left......gave the 3/8 socket a mighty whack and Bobs your uncle. these tools saved me hours and hours of escalating effort. Next balky nut or bolt I'm reaching for these first

Bought these to remove an extremely tight and rounded-off sump plug on my car engine. With a combination of hammering on and a bit of leverage applied the 1/2" remover bit down on the bolt head! Then with constant leverage applied and a little heat to sump locally around the plug from a blow torch the bolt moved!!! I can' tell you how happy this bolt grip set made me! at £21.99 this is one of the best additions to my ever expanding tool set. Well done IRWIN! 5*! One last thing to add...after all that abuse the remover looked new...not a scratch on it! These are seriously hard bits of kit!

The starter on my truck had a rounded off bolt in a really tight spot. Tried everything....then bought this 5 piece extractor set, and it came right off. Thanks!

I'm taking the body off my 1969 Corvette currently. To do this you need to take out the 10ea. 5/8" headed body bolts. A couple of these bolt heads became rounded in a very tight area. I spent about an hour trying various methods to extract, no luck. However, I found Bolt-Grip at Home Depot tapped on the 5/8" extractor, used a 7/8" 1/2" drive socket and beaker bar and out they came in a couple of minutes - Great Tool!

This set is truly a life-saver. The brakes on my truck are at the grinding stage. I made it to work and back on Friday and was ready to do the brake job. But I could not take the wheel off because I bought the truck used and the lock lug "key" was missing. And wouldn't you know, the dealership is closed on weekends. No auto parts store had the right key for my lug, then I remembered I had this bolt removal set I have been having for at least 15 years and had never used! I tapped the 5/8"/16mm tool on to the tip of the lock lug with a hammer and my standard lug wrench fit the tool perfectly. I was able to remove the nut and complete my brake job on both front wheels. I will not have to miss work on Monday and a day's pay, and possibly lose my job. Thanks Irwin! Thomas P. Rodrigue, Thibodaux, Louisiana.
