Nuts & Bolts

Tips for removing problematic nuts and bolts:

  • Spray the nut with penetrating oil, such as Liquid Wrench, and let the oil sit for 10 to 15 minutes to penetrate the threads of the bolt. Then use a wrench to loosen the nut.
  • Hold a hammer against one side of the nut and hit the other side with a second hammer. That should loosen the nut so that a wrench can remove it.
  • If the nut is badly rusted, pour hydrogen peroxide on it to dissolve the rust. If that doesn’t work, saw through one side of the nut with a hacksaw. Then loosen the nut by twisting it with an adjustable wrench.
  • If the head of the bolt is buried in your work piece, use a hacksaw to cut a groove in the top of the bolt. Stick the end of a screwdriver into the groove to hold the bolt steady while you loosen the nut.
  • A nut-splitter is a handy tool to remove nuts. It has a chisel inside its head that is screwed into the nut to pop it off.
