Screw Removal Pliers

When you're hacking apart a piece of hardware, stubborn screws can stop you in your tracks. We've all tried gripping a stripped screw with a pair of needle-nose pliers, but they always slip. We've all soaked rusted screws in machine oil but it takes hours. Some of us have even resorted to grinding the heads off altogether, wasting time and possibly damaging the hardware.

With these pliers you can just grip that stubborn screw by the head and pull it right out, no problem. The specially serrated jaws "bite" into rusted, stripped or otherwise difficult to remove screws. They've saved us a lot of grief, so next time you encounter a stubborn screw, reach for a pair of these. They also come in handy for non-standard screw types.

Really Useful

My life seems blighted with screws I can't remove. Mostly on my bike. There should be a law against shipping screws whose heads are softer than cheese.

These pliers really do help. They don't get everything but they have moved things I had previously been unable to shift. They seem well built as well and the handle is pretty comfortable.
