Additional Information


These things work freaking awesome! It is seldom where you can leave a five star product review and actually mean it. I went to do a routiene tire rotation on my 15 Yukon which is new to me. The last tech that put the wheel locks on last clearly over torqued them. If you use an impact gun on a wheel lock, they will inevitably strip and you will be left with a nut that has a smooth exterior and no way to grab onto it. I initially used a "wheel lock removal tool" which is basically a socket with no points. It has a smooth interior and it tapers inside. When you have a stripped wheel lock this gets pounded onto the exterior of the bolt and then "squeezes" the metal the further you hammer it on. It is supposed to be designed to do this specific task and remove wheel locks if you loose the key ( which most people do ). Anyhow, long story short, after a few hours working on one single stripped nut, even heating it with a torch and still no luck, we reluctantly gave up. My friend who is a mechanic was with me and said he has never had a bolt that he simply could not remove. I decided to order this set on Amazon on Saturday and they arrived on Monday. Truth be told I didn't think they would work and I expected to return them. Well, needless to say not only did they work but I could have had my three year old turn the wrench! I mean I simply selected the most appropriate size, hammered it on the nut until it was seated as far as possible and literally pulled on the breaker bar. I should mention I ordered a 24" breaker bar at the same time that was also a 1/2" drive because I only had a 12" standard ratchet. I'm just so impressed at how efficient these are I had to write a review. I also thought they would not be deep enough to clear the wheel stud based on the pictures but they are HUGE! I would not call them deep well but they are longer than a short socket. I was worried the wheel stud would be too long and they would not be able to "grab" any meat of what was left of the nut but this was not an issue at all. Anyhow, totally worth it and I will have these for life. After what I did trying to remove that nut i'm confident i can remove anything with these.

While the quality of this product seems to be well above its competition, its design does have a severe issue.

Keep in mind that I tried this tool on both of my vehicles - and both are running stock wheels. Irwin markets this tool set as a "Lugnut" Specialty "Extractor" set. Therefore, one should think that it excels at one task . . . removing lugnuts! BUT, for the tool to do its job it must first make contact with the lugnut. Before buying my concern was if the tool's thickness would allow it to fit over the lugnut while still fitting in the hole. Usually air impact tools have a thicker, or beefier, sidewall construction which makes it difficult to fit into spots, these fit - that way.

The issue with the design problem comes in with the length, way too short. The socket is barely larger than the lugnut itself, if at all. The only way I see these working is if the lugnut is on a smoothie style wheel or something similar to the spare tire wheel. Think about if your wheels have a hole/cavity/opening in which the lugnut fits DOWN into the wheel. If so, these will not fit on deep enough. To hopefully give a better description of the issue imagine a wheel you would see on the typical landscape trailer. These sockets would work great on that type of wheel. But on most OEM wheels today the lugnuts do NOT sit ON the wheel, more than they sit IN the wheel.

Spent an entire day with an impact wrench and liquid wrench trying to get a lug nut off that was way over-tightened and had fused to the recessed aluminum wheel. The standard impact socket finally destroyed the acorn cap and without that extra layer the socket wouldn't fit anymore and lug nut rounded off completely smooth. I finally gave up and bought this Irwin kit. It took the lug nut off before the delivery guy could even reach the end of the street. It came off so quick and easy (less than 2 seconds) that I thought it had lost it's bite and was just spinning but when I pulled the tool back the lug was off and in the socket. It had such a good bite on the lug nut that it took me about 20 minutes to get the lug nut out of the tool. I feel kinda stupid for having worked so long and so hard on something that just needed me to buy the right tool for the job.

My son has a 2007 Honda Accord. The Mr Gard security lugs are stripped out. They strip our very easily but that is for another review. Anyway, I used one of the sockets to removed the stripped lug. I had to hammer the socket of the lug and carefully remove it. It worked. You MUST hammer the socket on and you MUST get it straight over the lug nut. I needed a bench vice to remove the lug from the socket. I have attached a picture of the stripped lug. Some of you may find the socket is too large for the socket hole. In my case, that was not a problem. This socket is about the same size as a good lug wrench but larger (thicker wall) than a standard socket. I am very happy with the quality and results. I have had great luck with other Irwin Hanson tools.I believe this tool would work well for a variety of stripped or damaged bolt heads.

This is actually the first review i have ever given for anything on Amazon. I just had to post a review because I am simply amazed with the result of what I had ordered. It actually came used in the package with hammer marks however, this tool shined as it powered through the broken lug nut head took hold and I removed it with a 3 foot breaker bar on top of a half inch ratchet head. If you are on the fence about this product as I was, after using other similar tools this one is hands-down the real deal. If I could give it more stars I would. I actually got a quote from a shop about removing the lug nut at about $105 for the hour of work it would have taken them. Now I have a tool that I can use for years to come and save friends hopefully the heartache.

I work in a tire shop and constantly have to deal with broken wheel locks or lost wheel lock keys. These are great for removing wheel locks, but the large hex nut on the end prevents them from getting into some of the deeper lug recesses that some wheels have.

A bit pricey, but as I paid less than the RRP I,m happy enough. With the ten piece set that I've had for years and have had great success with, now that I've added this set there won't be much that can't be undone.

I was searching online looking for a way to takeoff the lock Lugnuts of my wife’s car. Because the key was not working because the Lugnuts were on too tight. At 3 o’clock in the morning Sunday, November 18. I was searching for information on YouTube and I seen this socket set. A mechanic was giving a tutorial about using the socket on strip Lugnuts. I said why not I looked at it seem quite easy I ordered it by 5:30 pm Sunday afternoon I received it 15 minutes later I was in my garage taking off the Lugnuts off my wife’s car so I absolutely recommend this to anybody who is having problems taking off their Lugnuts off definitely a five-star. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

me gustan porque se ven de buena calidad, todavia no las he usado , pero son del tamaño que usualmente manejo.

These are life savers! I have used them a few times and they still look new. Worth every penny!

it works
