Ken-Tool Twist Sockets Remove Damaged or Rounded Fasteners



The Twist Socket grips positively into the surface of a damaged bolt head or nut to allow it to be removed by using a counterclockwise spiral grip surface integrated into the socket.
 
The Twist Socket grips positively into the surface of a damaged bolt head or nut to allow it to be removed by using a counterclockwise spiral grip surface integrated into the socket.

The mouth of the socket has six or 12 fluted scallops that cradle the damaged hex head, with the spiral grip surface gently tapering toward the center to pull the socket downward as turning torque is applied. As more leverage is applied, a greater gripping force is delivered against the nut or bolt head.

The Twist Socket can be used with a ratchet wrench, a breaker bar or an air-impact wrench. In addition to fasteners, the Twist Socket can be used effectively on difficult-to-remove pipes, pipe caps, nipples or reducers as well as frozen studs. Consequently, the Twist Socket has a wide range of uses in any automotive or fleet service shop.
