WHEEL LOCK RIPPER INSTRUCTIONS
What type of drill should I use working with this kit?
We have tested air drills, battery drills, electric drills and we recommend using the 3/8” or ½” industrial 2 hand drill for our Wheel Lock Ripper Kit. ( You will need the power and you will have to use both hands.)
Quick Intro--- #1 Drill into lock. #2 Hammer in extractor. #3 Try to remove. #4 Repeat with other bits till it comes off.
Measure the length of the wheel lock- about 1". ( There are different sizes ) Install the guide, clamp, sleeve and by hand insert the 1/4" drill bit.
Next measure the distance needed to drill out the section of the stud by holding it in place.
Next place tape around the drill bit indicating how deep you will drill to reach the end of the wheel lock.
We recommend dry drilling- NO OIL. If smoke is noticed, stop and allow both the bit and the lock to cool down. You can use water or compressed air to cool them. ( Make sure both are dry when you start up again )
There are 3 different ways that you are able to use this kit to remove the wheel lock from the vehicle without damage to the wheel.
Drill the first hole using the ¼” drill bit. Drill through the wheel lock and stop before you hit the stud. Hammer in the extractor and try to remove the lock. If this works, great you are done. If not reinstall the guide assembly.
Continue using the ¼” drill bit and drill down to the tape and stop. Remove the guide assembly and hammer in the extractor and try again. If wheel lock still won't come off, continue drilling without the guide.
a. Very Important: Drill straight and not in circle. You do not want to increase the size of the hole larger than the bits.
3. Measure and add tape to the remaining 3 drill bits. Continue drilling to tape and use the Extractor after each drill bit to see if the wheel lock will come off. Once the 4th drill bit has been used the stud will be hollowed out and will be easy to remove it with the extractor.
Congratulations on removing the wheel lock fast and without damage to the wheel.
Time to clean and add oil to all the tools used in our kit. The drill bits may still feel very sharp when done, but may not work as well or as fast the second time used. In order to get the best results, we recommend a new set of drill bits for each wheel lock removal.
