Clever enough idea... over-enthusiastic price, though.

Seems like a pointless waste of money. There's already better tools suited for the job in existence, so why would anyone buy this?

Definitely ordered one based on reviews.

If I only had these 4 days ago, I may not have stripped the screw in the neck of my friend's motorcycle while trying to extract it. Heck, I may have not even snapped the bolt extractor inside the screw in which it still is.

Vise-Grips would be more useful IMO.

I dunno, anything with a head big enough for this tool I'd probably just cut a slot in with a dremel tool.

Not a bad idea for smaller screws in places where regular pliers won't fit and needle nose locking pliers aren't cutting it.

I'm surprised Vise-Grip never came out with this design, given how much the things are used for such tasks.

Even $20 is a little much though, I'll wait until these are on clearance somewhere or they wind up being free at Sears.

Interesting concept. But to charge $15 extra to grind in some vertical serrations is a little much. I think I'll skip.

I literally just stripped the screw well putting in my idle air control valve on my car last night and thought..."FU##"! I'm gonna have to tap this out and I don't have the tools and didn't feel like drilling out the screw. Then I woke up and saw this and immediately purchased it, not just for the car, but because I am always stripping screws especially on my computer. I have a feeling this is gonna be one of my better purchases I have made so thank you very much OP!

The serrations look helpful, but on a tough bolt or screw you're going to want it to be lockable like a vise grip right?

Who is normally taking screws out of their hard drive? That sample picture is ridiculous, if you are doing that, you likely don't really care about the screw head anymore, as the drive is toast.

As was said earlier, I would likely break out the dremel and cut a slot in an application where I had enough room for something like this. I see the value, but its a $10 tool, no more. I will wait until they fall some more. But repped for showing it, I never saw these before.

Curious as to the utility of this. Approximately 100% of the screws I have ever stripped were already countersunk or flush with the material so this would not work. If there is any part of the screw still protruding, any good vise-grip pliers would work. So when would this be used?
