What is a nut splitter?
|A nut splitter is a tool used to remove damaged or seized nuts from bolts or threaded studs.|
Why are nut splitters used?
|Nuts can become seized onto the threads of fasteners due to corrosion. This can make removing them very difficult, and using a socket or spanner often makes matters worse, as they can slip, rounding off the nut's corners.|
|While there are several ways you can try to remove a seized or damaged nut, each method will likely result in more damage to the nut, making the job harder. When other methods have failed, using a nut splitter can be the last resort to removing the nut.|
