Got a stuck screw or a screw with some wacky security head? Don’t reach for the extractor kit; wrap these $25 screw pliers around the head, and simply twist the screw out. Made by one of Japan’s leading hand tool manufacturers — Engineer Inc., formerly Futaba Tool Mfg. — these pliers remove tamper-resistant, rusty, stripped-head, or otherwise damaged screws.
Engineer makes their 6″ long screw pliers from industrial quality steel, hardens them to HRC56±2, and rubber-coats the handles. The rounded nose design and specially shaped jaws allow the screw pliers to grab nearly flush screw heads firmly enough to twist them when a normal screwdriver fails.
