One of the most common and annoying maintenance problems encountered around the workshop, home or construction site are damaged screw heads. It can be all too easy to damage a screw head. Damage can be caused by applying too much force when tightening or loosening the screw, which may cause the screwdriver to slip and shear the head. Using the incorrect screwdriver size can also contribute to the problem. In addition, stuck screws or old rusted screws may not be able to handle the extra turning force applied by a screwdriver due to existing wear and tear on the screw head. As soon as the screwdriver slips, damage is caused to the head, making it even more difficult to properly grip the screw.
The inconvenience of a damaged screw head is something that can frustrate even the most resolute repairer or handyman. In these instances, most people will use pliers to grip the screw head and attempt to turn the screw loose. The issue with normal pliers is that they only have horizontally serrated teeth to grip the screw. The gripping force and teeth angle are usually insufficient for this application and the pliers will continue to slip and will be unable to successfully loosen the screw.
A tool that is easy to use, affordable, specifically designed for this application and that has multiple other uses is the best approach to tackling this common problem. Warren and Brown Screw Removal Pliers have been designed to address this common problem. As well as providing the same features as traditional pliers, Screw Removal Pliers have the additional benefit of being designed to remove stripped, rusted or stuck screws. Screw Removal Pliers have a patented gripping mechanism design, allowing it to grip and turn even the most stubborn or difficult to remove screws. The patented design incorporates both horizontal and vertical serrations, which allows it to grip the screw head and avoid any slipping. Therefore, the vertical and horizontal serrations perfectly fit around the screw head to generate enough friction and gripping power.
This tool is much easier to handle and use than Locking pliers or screw extractors. Additionally, it is perfectly suited for removing a variety of screw head types including truss, round and pan head. These Screw Removal Pliers are available from Warren and Brown Precision Tools and come in 4 different models to suit a variety of screw head sizes. The most common model is the PZ58 which is a set of multi-purpose pliers, ideal for cutting and twisting wire as well as removing stuck screws with a head diameter of 3-9.5mm.
