@MakitaTeam: What other information do you need? You stick a bit in an extension and it's nearly impossible to get it out. I had to clamp one end and use channel locks to pull on the other. I about fell down when I finally got it out from pulling so hard. Looking around on the web, I saw where people had luck by removing the retention ring. That worked for me, but you shouldn't have to essentially break the item for it work like normal.
My kit had a warning about his on the back of the packaging, but I almost missed it. It is a curious problem.
Response to AlanK: My question was directed to Makita, and your statement inferring that I was 'clueless' and that I needed to 'use my brain' were not appreciated. I have asked HD to remove your response but have yet to do so, because of that, I just returned $300 worth of merchandise to HD (plunge router, router table and hand planer) and may stop going there. That is a shame, because while I am not a contractor or in the construction industry, I have spent close to $4,000 at HD this year. I am a DYI person who has thousands of dollars in tools including Ryobi, Milwaukee, Makita and Rigid. In fact, a fair portion of the people who work at HD know me and while in their store, I actually help their customers. With that being said, Makita does NOT provide a warning not to use Their extension with Their 2" bits (either in this set, or the extension sold separately). Other 2" bits from other manufactures do Not get locked. (I have tested this.) In my case, I needed to screw in some #2 square pocket-hole screws for a project I was working on and my 6" #2 bit was too long. Makita's 2" bit and extension fit perfectly for this unique situation. (Unfortunately, they became permanently locked together.) While it is clear that you use these items frequently, your comment "This is all stuff you learn the hard way by using these tools." is not a great defense for Makita and their reputation for quality products. With that being said, one should not have to 'learn the hard way' when using this set, nor should gift-givers of these sets have to apologize to gift-recipients when this happens to them, nor should the gift recipients have to return their gifts to HD for a refund. So far, 7 out of 45 people have complained about this enough to post negative comments about this set which is not good, seeing that half of those 45 ratings didn't have comments which give little credibility to their ratings. Makita should include a note/warning not to use their extension with their 2" bits to at least attempt to prevent people from having to 'learn the hard way' as you mentioned.
I am confused with the statement
Not true at least for my set, just got it today from the local HD. The long bits fit the extension just fine, not perfect, but fine. Some extensions I bought in the past did have this problem: any bits once attached I have to pull it out with pliers. But fortunately, not this Makita set.
Better than the gold tip bits by makita
Yes it is and it will fit 3 or more
Yes, this set will work with that driver.
