A Must Have.
17 Jun 2013
By
, Wrexham
"I have a fiberglass boat that needed the top to be taken off the hull, it was fastened together with nuts and bolts that was very badly corroded.
so i invested in this grabit, it works very well, but i found it too slow so used a 4mm hss drill bit to pre-drill bolts first, then used grabit to drill smooth hole. this made it much quicker.
Bit is good quality but in my opinion a bit pricey for what it is.
Great addition to tool box though.

Pro Grabit screw remover
6 Oct 2012
By
, Ballingry, Fife
"The 2nd best tool I've ever bought, the best being my battery drill driver. Great for removing those cheap and nasty screws that are supplied with most products nowadays were the head of the screw turns to mush, no matter the quality or your driver bit!"

"Wasn't sure at first weather this would work as the bolt that was rounded off was well and truly stuck in the engine, tried using cheaper screw extractors with no luck, this is a true life saver! Buy one!"

"Had to get a stripped screw out of annodised aluminium facing - so I couldn't 'dig around' - I just followed the instructions - cleaned out the hole and reversed the bit in - and out popped the screw not a mark on the aluminium - saved me £130 - so a good investment don't know about heavier jobs - Screwfit guys helpful and friendly too!"

It works!
29 Dec 2013
By
, Brentwood, Essex
"Picked this up today in hope of removing a stubborn screw with a rusted head. Got it working very easily and did the job. Handy little trick to have in the tool box. Doesn't look like it would work but it does! Bit pricey but at least it works and gets you of a tight spot. Made out of a very tough alloy and machined well which probably explains some of the cost?"

An Ok purchase
23 Feb 2010
By
, Kent
"These are ok for light use but i think lose their sharpness a little too quickly. And dont cut a hole in a screw head very easily.
I tried using this on 6 screws and it got 3 out in total.
Not the best but maybe i didnt have enough patience. I only used on 1"1/2 x8's so haven't used the bigger one yet.
If they last a long time then the price tag might be worth it!

disappointing
29 Mar 2012
By
, Great Yarmouth
"Was really disappointed with these. It says in the instructions that they can be used in a cordless drill. I chose to use them in a small handled socket ratchet so I didn't put to much strain on them and one of them snapped.
Up until that point it seemed to be working excellently. It bored the screw head out perfectly and then using the other end to bite into the damaged screw, which it also done really well. But then the end that had bit into the screw head snapped.
So, not impressed, I returned it to the store for a full refund.

don't buy

, Workington, Cumbria
"If I could have given no stars for this product I would have done. It was very expensive but I purchased it anyway because of it's brand name, wrongly believing that it would be a good product and would do the job I needed. Well it didn't! It failed miserably. it's a complete waste of a lot of money, so don't waste yours."

Useless in some situations
15 Jan 2014
By
, London
"I wanted to remove screws attaching metal rails to ceramic tiles on bathroom walls. The drilling end bored a hole extremely slowly. The extracting end would not engage with the hole. This waste of time resulted in screws looking worse and more difficult to extract than before.
Various online videos of the product in operation show it removing vertical screws from horizontal soft wood (so the drill can press down hard); my application had screws through metal where the drill needed to be horizontal. The claims for the product do not hint at its limitations.

No good for sheared bolts
18 Aug 2009
By
, Dorset
"First, I don't doubt this is a good product for removing screws with damaged heads, etc. It will probably also remove damaged bolts that are not too well stuck. However, my need was to remove a M8 bolt where the head had sheared off and this product was no use for that.
The grabit's instructions show it being used to remove a bolt where the head has sheared off, but as soon as you start to use the product it is clear that it is not designed for that. I rang up their technical support and they said it is not designed for where the head has sheared right off, even though this is exactly what is shown in the picture in the instructions!
They suggested I drilled in to the bolt and use the grabit in the drilled hole. I did that, applied a medium amount of pressure and the end of the grabit sheared off.
It is clearly not made for removing bolts where the head has sheared off. The instructions they give just won't work on such a bolt and the product is not strong enough for this because any bolt stuck enough for its head to shear off is going to need some force to shift it and the grabit won't stand anything near that force.
The grabit is probably very good for removing screws in wood and plaster around the house, but don't make the mistake of thinking this is an engineering product for removing bolts stuck in metal. I think this product is being mis-sold and Screwfix might want to take that up with the manufacturer."
