Grip Sockets for damaged bolts

Recommended Posts

Failed to get the seat belt bolt out from the sill,  the corners rounded off so before going any further I would like to try one of these grip sockets however I cannot find a source selling individual sockets. Does anyone know of a supplier? A whole set seems an expensive waste especially as I could just leave it alone, but you know how it is!

I have a set similar to those that Stuart has shown, good value and do the job (and hopefully others) nicely.

Ye need a 6 point socket,

butt, need t,grind the chamfered lead-in inside edge away,

on thin heeded bolts / nuts, this lead in can be the depth of bolt or nut

 

grind it away till its flat, an then socket will bite ont non damaged area,

If its a wee bit slack, try a metric,or WW or BSF,or owt thats a titer fit

even if it means heat,n socket up t,get it t,fit a wee bit better

Don't get to enthusiastic with the seatbelt bolts as the welded on nut on the back have been known to become detached.
