Two choices, bolt remover, or buy a cheap socket just a little too small and use a hammer to drive it on . Then just back it off and throw it away.

Dont think the socket would work as they are internal drive nuts, so would jus collapse as you hit it on. You can buy a set of reverse thread sockets from the likes of halfords ect that start of with a large size then just keeps gettin narrower so as you turn it on anti clockwise it tightens up until it grips and undoes the nut, this should work ok as you haven't tightened it up to much.

Reverse thread sockets - aka bolt removers.



The smaller socket works. Thats how we get wheel locks off all the time. Lose a key for a lock, and have to get it off. It comes off. No problem.

Chas,

I had the same problem with one of mine. The problem is that the socket supplied does not sit far enough into the nut and so puts all the pressure on the collar which breaks quite easlily.

Abbey sorted me out with a new socket that fits all the way into the nut. No probs since.
