Hanson-brand bolt extractors eliminate the need to use drills, hacksaws, or torches, according to the manufacturer.

Even the most rusted, locked up nuts and bolts break free. The Hanson bolt extractors use a left-handed spiral flute design that tightly grips the damaged fasteners-no more scraped or sore knuckles. Hanson extractors will remove most fasteners from 1/4- to one-inch in size. Because the extractors have a square drive and hexagonal flats, they can be used with a socket wrench, flat head or impact wrenches.
