A solution for damaged wheel nuts and bolts 30 April 2024

Laser Tools has introduced new damaged wheel nut extractors, specially designed spiral sockets, for the efficient removal of badly damaged wheel nuts or bolts.

Engineered from SCM440 medium carbon chromium molybdenum alloy steel for strength and wear resistance, these cold forged sockets ensure durability and reliability.

The fitted plastic sleeve protects the finish on alloy wheels and are available in three sizes: 17mm – part number 8764, 19mm – part number 8765, and 21mm – part number 8766.

The equivalent wheel nut socket drives the extractor, as it turns the spiral grooves bite into the damaged wheel nut or bolt and grip securely. Once the nut is removed, a punch is needed to pop it out from the extractor.
