New wheel nut extraction sockets introduced

Building on the success and popularity of the original Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets launched in 2019, GEARWRENCH is now unveiling the latest addition to its family – Bolt Biter Wheel Nut Extraction Sockets.
GEARWRENCH says the new additions use the same technology that made Bolt Biter a hit, but now apply it specifically to removing worn or damaged wheel nuts.
“We saw the success of the initial launch and people were immediately asking for more, so we listened and took another step further,” GEARWRENCH Product Manager, Steven Tokouzis, said.
“The GEARWRENCH Bolt Biter Extraction Sockets allow auto techs, MRO techs, and DIYers to remove and reuse corroded, weathered, rounded and/or damaged wheel nuts with ease.”
Bolt Biter Wheel Nut Extraction Sockets feature a tapered entry that makes it easy to seat on a damaged fastener without hammering, and the “minus-sized” sockets are designed to grip wheel nuts that are worn down substantially.
The bi-directional design generates five times the gripping force of other extraction sockets and allows techs to not just remove fasteners but reuse them as well.
GEARWRENCH says the sockets also have a deep design to reach the deepest wheel nuts “that others can’t.”
The square drive with hex base makes Bolt Biter Wheel Nut Extraction Sockets compatible with an impact gun, ratchet, wrench, or pliers.
GEARWRENCH explains that the sockets are made from chrome molybdenum for 10-times the impact life of competitors, while it states the black oxide finish provides superior corrosion resistance.
As such, GEARWRENCH says they save techs time in getting the job done and money by lasting longer than the rest.
Bolt Biter Wheel Nut Extraction Sockets are available in a 10-piece ½-inch drive set (86071).
