How does it release bolt or nut?

Does this work for hurricane shutter wing nuts?

Home Depot is out of wing nut drivers, is this a good replacement for that?
Asked by: Jim
If the wing nut is small enough to fit inside, then yes it will work.

3/8 in. Universal Socket with Power Drill Adapter is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not durable stuck nuts and bolts usually take a bit of torque to remove. The fingers in this product twisted and slipped causing the nut to be even more difficult to remove. This socket self destructed on the first use.

I got this socket with the idea that I would use it to repair push mowers. Lots of different sized bolts on the different brands of machines, and I thought this would make it so I wouldn't have to change out the socket every few bolts. I did not take into account that the overall size of this socket is the largest common denominator. So it's too large to fit in many of the small areas that a smaller socket would fit into. That being said, would I recommend this? For general stuff, yes. For small, tight spaces, no. I'm going to leave it on my spare drill so I can still make somewhat quick work of the many bolts I have to remove, while using my main drill for the two most common smaller size sockets.

Not on normal bolts, or stripped ones. I tried and tried, and I definitely know how to use tools. That's what I do for a living... The pegs always get stuck and refuse to come back up, multiple ones.. It wouldn't grip anything, and I bought it a year ago. It's been sitting ever since, completely useless like it always was.

The only thing I don't like about this product is that, if you have bolts that are old and really set into place, the Gator Grip can't catch hold of it. It's not strong enough. For everyday use though, it's pretty great. We rebuilt a fence and when it came time to take the bolts out of the old hinges, we had to go to our socket set and manually loosen half the bolts before we could get the Gator Grip to work on them. It's a good idea, just wish it could grip a little tighter.

I bought this to remove a particular hex head bolt that is 5/16" and fairly rounded. It would not grip the hex head at all to remove it. Just spun around it even though it was a size that it should have worked with easily. Before I give it 1 star, I want to try it again with larger bolts.

The head was stripped (not by me) This tool did not work. I bought a pair of vice grips. They worked. I feel if the plug hadn't been so tight and probably had some kind of thread sealer, this tool would have worked.

I was disspointed as this came highly recommend but Home Depot staff. I'm sure it would work on larger bolts, just not the smaller ones although it specifically states 8mm.
