Carpentry & Home Improvement Skills : How to Remove a Stripped Screw


Well, we got a stripped screw, and we got
to figure out how to get it out of there. So that’s what we’re going to do. I’m Robert
Markey, I’ve been doing construction for many years, and we’re going to talk about getting
a stripped screw out. Okay. As you can see, this screw – you can’t get it out with a screwdriver
because the threads have been stripped. So, we’re going to use these which are basically
threaded screw removers. First thing we want to do is drill a hole in here to get our removal
started. Okay, we got the wrong one. And as it bites into it, there we have it. And this
stripped screw is removed. I’m Robert Markey, and we’ve shown how to get a stripped screw
out.

  1. no tools being bare hands? no screw driver or hammer? i usaly get a screwdriver and place it on the screw head and hammer it in to the screw and then turn anti clokwise ūüėČ it usaly works

  2. I have an idea, where you sotter the tool (allen key, phillips head) to the screw to get a good hold. when your done you can just melt the sotter off of the tool.

  3. A much harder fix is snapping the head of the screw entirely off while screwing two cabinet styles together that often times leaves the cabinets slightly apart with the screw shank threaded into both.

    Some thing that works like a charm is steel brake line, believe it or not. Take a section of it and sharpen one end of it on your belt sander then put it in your drill and begin to cut around the broken screw rotating left. It will eventually bind and back out the broken screw. Nifty trick!

  5. i have a stripped screw in my dogs shock collar and its really really small. i need to unscrew it to put new batteries in it but i cant. can u help me

  6. @shaiennebb Your looking at the wrong vid. These "experts" are just regular people that go on a website and post videos.

  7. Those big threaded removers aren't nearly as good as The Grabit. You can get them at theGrabitStore online for $20 for a 4 piece kit of professional bit/removers.

  8. i've said it before and I'll say it again. expert village is the worst.

    ALWAYS disappointed in these videos

  9. The stripped screw I have is a 1.5 metric hex screw and it's super small. Are there removers that small? It's recessed as well so the dremel to flathead method isn't an option for me.

  10. We need to remove the screw with something improvised from around the house. If we had the tool, no one would even be looking for help videos.
