Los tornillos pelados son una pesadilla para cualquier entusiasta de la reparación. Por más que lo intentes, algunos tornillos simplemente no quieren salir. La frustración toma el control y antes de que te des cuenta, esa vez la forma "+" se convirtió en "O". Nunca temas; te cubrimos. Esta guía le explicará cómo utilizar una herramienta rotativa para extraer un tornillo pelado cortando una pequeña ranura en la cabeza del tornillo, lo que le permite extraer el tornillo con un destornillador de cabeza plana.

  • Su tornillo está despojado, y su destornillador ya no es suficiente. Antes de rebotar los bateadores pesados, intente lo siguiente:

    • Utilice destornilladores diferentes. Primero intente tamaños de cabeza ligeramente más pequeños o más grandes, luego un destornillador de cabeza plana, para ver si puede conseguir que atrape en alguna parte del tornillo pelado.

      • Si el bit no atrapa el tornillo al instante, no continúe. De lo contrario, corre el riesgo de quitar el tornillo.

  • Si alguna de estas técnicas son fructíferas, ¡felicidades! Tu tornillo es libre.

Una banda de goma le puede dar el agarre extra que necesita.

  • Estire una banda de goma sobre el tornillo pelado.

  • Inserte un destornillador de tamaño adecuado, y darle un giro.

Agregar Comentario

  • Si la cabeza del tornillo es accesible, pruebe con un par de alicates de extracción de tornillo. Si puede obtener un buen agarre, a su vez los alicates y el tornillo debe girar junto con él!

  • Una vez que el tornillo se afloja un poco, probablemente puede retroceder el resto del camino con un destornillador.

  • ¿Todavía atrapado? Trate de añadir un poco de superglue a la parte superior del tornillo.

  • Fije su conductor en la cabeza del tornillo, y permita que el pegamento se seque.

  • Utilizando un agarre firme y presión hacia abajo, dé al conductor un giro para quitar el tornillo.

  • No se olvide de limpiar los restos de la cola de la punta de su conductor.

You might want to mention to spend the extra buck and get the gel superglue. It's way easier to control...

Also might suggest applying the tiny ammount of super glue to the tool tip not the screw. If you accidently squeeze out too much the overflow can be cleaned off the tool and the glue reapplied much easier than it can be removed from the screw and the surrounding areas of the device. Alternately the surrounding areas can be masked from excess glue with a bit of transparent tape.

James Todd - Contestar

How would you remove the screw from the driver?

William Sanborn - Contestar

How do I clean of screw driver from the super glue?

And how do I prevent or avoid that situation the next time?

Gerald - Contestar

  • Si usted no pudo quitar el tornillo con los destornilladores, los alicates, una goma, o el pegamento estupendo, entonces una herramienta rotatoria debe hacer el truco.

  • Conecte un disco de corte delgado a su herramienta giratoria. Antes de cortar cualquier cosa, asegúrese de que el disco está bien asegurado.

  • Asegúrese de usar gafas protectoras siempre que utilice una herramienta giratoria para evitar lesiones de escombros voladores y chispas.

Mask the area so the small metal particles don't create a short. Even still use a few blasts of can'ed air to blow any junk away.

Dan - Contestar

  • En este paso, usted utilizará la herramienta giratoria para hacer un corte fino en el tornillo pelado que le permite utilizar un destornillador de cabeza plana para quitar el tornillo.

  • Recomendamos utilizar un ajuste de baja potencia (utilizamos 2 de 6) para evitar dañar el resto del dispositivo o el tornillo.

  • Usted desea que el corte sea lo suficientemente profundo que usted puede caber un destornillador de cabeza plana en él, pero lo suficientemente delgada que el destornillador tiene algo que agarrar.

  • Haga un solo corte fino en la cabeza del tornillo pelado.

Agregar Comentario

  • Utilice un destornillador de cabeza plana para quitar el tornillo del dispositivo.

    • El tamaño del controlador dependerá del tamaño del tornillo, pero utilice el tamaño más grande que cabrá en su corte.

  • Si no puede colocar un destornillador en el corte, use la herramienta giratoria para hacer que el corte sea mayor. Haga sólo cortes pequeños; Si se corta demasiado el tornillo, un destornillador no se cogerá y no será capaz de torcer el tornillo.

  • Use protección para los ojos y déle a su dispositivo unas pocas explosiones de aire comprimido antes de reensamblarlo. La herramienta rotativa puede dispersar las virutas de metal sueltas alrededor del dispositivo, creando el potencial para un cortocircuito eléctrico si no soplado claro.

This isn't helpful. If you can't afford a decent screwdriver in the first place chances are you won't have a rotary tool handy? maybe think of something a bit more practical.

Angel - Contestar

OR many you're repairing something with a screw that's already been stripped?

Think outside the box, and don't be so negative.

amuronakamoto -

Uh, there are a number of options here, the rotary tool is given as the last resort.

Marama -

It’s very helpful for me when I repair items that have been badly repaired by other people.

STB Admins -

I usually use the soldering iron, resting on the screw head dilation of the materials or any glue on the thread, but if the damage the screw head is large only with the idea of ​​same rotary tool.

Cleyton - Contestar

"To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order."

Yeah, that makes perfect sense... If you put the saw in reverse it glues all the buts of iron back onto the screw :-)

But other than that, this could be useful in some situations. Be careful,of the iron filings on your electronics!

koesper - Contestar

Haha, good catch! We've fixed the conclusion. Apologies to all who tried so very hard to follow these instructions in reverse.

Jeff Suovanen -

You could also try Bit-Biter. The unique formula multiplies friction between a slipping driver and fastener head, creating enhanced gripping power during installation and removal processes. Stripped, rusted, or damaged fasteners and drivers become workable again!

Tectorius Rep - Contestar

The link has changed if you wanted to try Bit-Biter we updated our website and the previous link does not work.

Jeanne -

There's always the ultimate tool if it won't go out, the drill.

Of course you'll have to make new threads if you drill out a screw. However, as a "weapon of last resort", the drill always works.

Branko Dodig - Contestar

Thank you for this guide. The Vampliers, however, completely removed the head of my T6 screw. There are two of them holding the display to the top case of my 15'' Macbook Pro. I am on one of the last steps in the Top Case replacement guide.

Can I use a drill if my screw has virtually no head?


A Mac User - Contestar

Using the rotary tool will spray metal filings all over the electronic components creating a short. Bad idea.

Brick dal - Contestar

I agree, to a point.

But listing it as a last resort, for a device that is already broken and cannot be repaired until the stripped screw is removed, does fit this article. Metal shavings aren't making something that is already unusable worse off. Your observation that there are risks is probably something the article should mention though as part of the explanation for why this was listed last.

toddgardiner -

Thanks for mentioning this! We added a cautionary note to the last step, reminding readers to blow out the device with compressed air before reassembly. That should help reduce the risk from loose metal shavings.

Jeff Suovanen -

This didn't help at all. In fact rubber band and glue made it worse. I don't want to use a drill. Not when the screw is so tiny. It can create more damage to the system

The rubber band trick worked like a charm for me! I couldn't remove a sunken stripped and rounded out philips head from my tail light to change the bulb. I thought I was going to have to go to a shop to get the bulb changed. I tried the rubber band idea with no real expectation of it working and surprisingly it did.

Give it a try and it might just work for you too!

absoluteze - Contestar

Came up with a better solution for the first or second try. Personally, I would do this first. The Story: Had a Canon G16 with a stripped screw head. Severely rounded phillips, appeared that wrong size driver was used. I noticed after a bit of inspection that my good screw driver was bottoming out, preventing any contact with any remaining slot. There wasn't much remaining slot at all. I filled off the point of my screw driver just a small amount but that let me "find" the remaining phillips head slots and with some strong pressure was able to turn the screw out. Worked great.

Stihl Working - Contestar

thanks for taking time to post this helpful information!!! thats very nice of you and i appreciate it very much. even if it ends up not working in my situation , which im sure one of these steps will

WARD KNIGHT - Contestar

My screwhead is not stripped, the Screw just spins. What do I do to get it out, can't grab head either

LuAnne Biskup - Contestar

See if you can slide a thin knife blade under the screw head and then carefully try to unscrew the screw (don't apply do much downward pressure here), as you turn the screw lift the knife edge easing out the screw until you can grab it.

Dan -

Hand operated micro drill, using a bit which is the same size as the hole the screw goes through. Just drill until the head of the screw pops off, clean up filings with a magnet. Once you've removed the part you can use pliers to remove the headless screw.

Tim Lockwood - Contestar

I think you're talking about a jewelers hand drill (or pin vise) like this one: Jewelers Drill

Dan -

This seems to be all regarding electronics. I have two screws that are stripped that hold small brackets on a wall. Previous owner of my home seemed to strip many screws. These screws are phillips and to top it off are not screwed in straight. I am remodeling my kitchen by myself and i am trying to repair all the holes in the wallboard. I would guess grabbing onto them with pliers might be the best idea. Any thoughts?


Deborah - Contestar

Pliers should work! That's probably what I'd do. If you have trouble, there are screw extracting pliers made just for this purpose.

Jeff Suovanen -

what if the screw is stripped and inside a whole like a Nintendo 3ds and cant cut it and glue or rubber band didn't work??

victor - Contestar

exactly the problem i have. I even sent it to Nintendo, they sent it back and said Nope.

joey c -

See Tim Lockwood's comment above. When all else fails, a drill will get the job done. It can be a bit messy, so I usually use it as a last resort.

Jeff Suovanen -

See the problem is that I'm like poor. And when I say poor I mean broke. I don't have any fancy tools (rotary driver? nope!) and I really just want to take out the battery of my phone before I fix the screen since I'm waaaaayyy too cheap to buy a new phone and I don't want to die. Is there a cheap effective way to remove it (I tried all of the above except super glue, I don't have that either and won't be able to get any) I really don't care if the screw is destroyed since I have a second one anyways. ( I also don't own a drill)


Niels de boer - Contestar

Thanks for this guide. I didn't have a rubber band so I used some kitchen paper, and it worked. I guess anything that's thin, soft and have a descent amount of friction will work.

Einfacher geht es wenn man eine mutter auf die schraube lötet und es damit rausdreht, aber gutes festes lot verwenden.

More Easy to use soldering new Srew on the demage screw .

You need good soldering tin

christian - Contestar

Yet one more idea that might work is a trick I sometimes use on larger seized fasteners on cars. Using a very sharply pointed punch (like a sturdy nail which has been sharpened) and a small hammer, make an indentation in the screws head out close to the edge (hold the punch vertical for first few taps) then tilt the punch about 45 degrees and while keeping the point in the indentation tap in the correct direction to unscrew the fastener. Repeated impacts will unscrew the fastener.

James Todd - Contestar

Great advice, thank you! :o)

ClaCla TI Worcestershire - Contestar

So, you get the screw out, now what? How do you get another screw to hold in a flogged out hole? Does anyone have any ideas?

i love the layout of this website. This really helped me take my screw out of my skateboard
