Customer Questions & Answers

What do I use to remove security door one way screws?

I want to remove or take down old security doors.
Asked by: DoitEd
A grinder with a cutting wheel and a large flat head screw driver. You can use the one way driver bit as long as it is the bit that looks like a socket with a flathead screw driver inside.

Do i have to purchase the oneway screw driver to install the "unique window bars and the 3" projection mounting brackets?

Asked by: Girl
Thank you for your interest in our One Way Screw Driver. We do recommend using our one way driver to install our window guards. I hope this information is helpful.

To Unique Home Design: If the tool can only be used to install one way screws, why does the packaging say "ONE WAY SCREW DRIVER AND REMOVER"?

Asked by: Mike
They are saying you need this driver (as opposed to a regular screwdriver) to remove one-way screws. But actually, I did not buy this because of the bad reviews. Some say it works ok, others say no. There's a little trick to installing and removing one-way screws. If you have a socket wrench set, find a socket that will just slip over the side of the screw head. You want a tight fit. The socket grabs the sides of the screw and installs or removes it fairly easily. If you can't find the right size socket, go with a larger size and slip some sandpaper between the socket and the sides of the screw head to make a tight fit. By the way, this trick works for ANY screw that is stuck, stripped or rusted. If you can get a socket over the sides of the screw head, it will come off.

This is a must for the companies one-way screws which do have a nice finished look. On prior installations, we have used appropriate length lag screws and then used a small automobile collision repair grinder to round the bolt heads after which, we painted to match.

As with most other reviews of this product I agree that it could be made better by machining it and the screws better. It and the screws are machined with rounded edges and it does not grip like it should. It helps to drill the starter holes a little bit oversize, use wax as a lubricate, and screw in as slowly and with as much pressure as you can apply. By the time I installed 4 of the bars it was starting to work ok with the advice given.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from False Advertising Purchased the tool specifically because it states on the front packaging, "ONE WAY SCREW DRIVER AND REMOVER". Apparently this is not true. Unique Home Design's response to one of the questions asked states the tool is NOT to be used for removing one way screws. They are right. It will not remove one way screws. Save your money. If you predrill the holes, the small bit that comes with the security doors works just fine for installing. For removal, grind the heads off, remove the door and use vice grips to remove the screw shaft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great when you follow the instructions! Evey tool has techniques and rules for safe and succesful operation. This driver is no exception.The one-way lag bolts used to mount security doors are just that. A bolt, not a wood screw. A wood screw has an ever increasing diameter on the threads. A bolt is usually the same dimension all along the shank. The instruction on the package tells part of the secret: "PRE DRILL HOLES FOR BEST RESULTS". The reason you are doing that is because you are probably trying to mount your security door on old wood, which is dry and will split if you try to drive all the lag-screw diameter into it and it won't give like new wood will. The pilot hole should be the same size as the inside diameter of the threads shank. It is only the outer threads that do the gripping. Then an old carpenters trick: Get a regular hex-head lag-bolt of the same diameter and length as your one-way lag-screws. Apply some wax (Candle, Beeswax, etc.or oil)to to the front of the lag bolt. Use your drill motor with an adapter and a socket to drive the lag bolt into the wood and then remove it. You have essentially "Tapped" threads in the wood with the hex-head lag bolt. When you screw the one-way lag bolts in use a lot of pressure and push on the drill motor so the driver does not jump. Control the speed of the driver so that you don't try to ram it in like you are used to doing with wood screws. That way when the head of the lag screw seats against the surface you don't have the driver bounicing off of the one-way lag bolt head. That bouncing is what tears the driver up. Didn't take me multiple trips. Installed my security door and the one-way screw driver is just like new! Great tool!
