Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Roadrunner Couldn't get it to work.
I couldn’t get this to work. I followed the directions by using the drill bit side first to create a nice cavity. Then I flipped it over and used the extractor bit but it would not grab the broken screw. This might work better for a larger screw than the one I had (I was using the smallest bit). I ended up using a regular drill bit to drill out the screw. Maybe when or if I have something larger break, I will try this set again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HandyJ Worked for the most part
I had two screws to remove. On the first, I did not have much luck with the drill side of the bit (maybe I was doing something wrong, but I think I used a regular drill bit instead), but the extractor side grabbed & the screw came out, yea! On the second which was a brass screw in iron threads (holding down a drain cover), I was unsuccessful using either side (too soft?) and eventually used a hammer drill with a throw away bit (i.e. a broken bit, which being shorter was unlikely to break again) and it finally blew out the bad screw, fortunately leaving the threads intact.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pete Worked for me
This did what I needed it to do, but took more than 10 seconds. The cutting end of the bit did not work for me, I had to use multiple drill bits to create a hole. Otherwise, good product!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jw does not work
This item did not remove a single screw. I followed the instructions, even tried all of the sizes on at least 10 screws. Total waste of money and metal.

If you're not a pro this situation almost always makes you cringe. The need to remove a stripped screw. This kit is a magic show of success. Easy to use all you need is a drill. Amazing

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HPIII Not for every application
Definitely did not work for what I needed. Screw did not budge even a little. May work on screws stuck in wood but it didn't work for my screws stuck in metal. Home Depot had one in stock and on sale so I'm pretty sure they are going to drop this item from their inventory.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frankr72 Great idea but did not work
I bought this to help you remove a broken bolt on my caliper and it did not work! It might work for a smaller household screw or bolt but not on heavy duty bolts.
