How to remove a broken bolt the easy way...

Say you have snapped the head off a rusty bolt on the car, its infuriating!

But, there is a fantastic tip from a mechanical engineer that works every time, and is easy to do!

Lets assume the bolt is a 10mm exhaust stud or similar, take a 4mm drill bit (sharp one) and a 4mm hex (allen) key, (especially a t-bar type or socket mounted one) - drill a pilot hole right down into the bolt with the 4mm drill, as far as you can without snapping the drill bit in the bolt!!! Use light pressure, a sharp drill bit and let the drill do the work, and keep it straight....then when you pull the drill out, tap the hex key into the hole you made with a hammer, get it in as far as you can, it will be a tight fit as the 4mm hex key measures 4mm from flat to flat across it, and the corners of each flat are slightly more than that so it bites very well into the bolt, spray plenty of release fluid or wd40 around the exposed bolt thread to help loosen it, leave for 10 minutes if rusty, then turn the hex key with either a socket and wrench or the t-handle on it, and it will turn the bolt without slipping!

And hex keys are VERY VERY strong, much stronger than a bolt as they are tempered high tensile steel - the bolt will unscrew with ease! Forget useless screw and bolt extractors! And simply pick a drill size that gives a decent hole leaving some metal at the sides of the bolt but not too small a size, and keep the hex key to the same size in mm as the drill you use, if you made a mistake just go up a size or 2 on both drill bit and hex key and you get another try, but should not need it!

I needed the screw size to mount the tv to the stand. No instruction I the manual.

Try self taping screws. Get a couple sizes and use the smallest one that holds securely.

I need the size of the allenkey

1. Get a Vernier caliper. Preferably both in inches and in millimeters.
2. Use the small inside jaws to measure the inside of the hexagonal screw keyhole, perpendicular to two of the sides.
3. Note the reading both in in and in mm, and convert to the next smallest standard Allen key size. The right key should fit precisely without any wobble.

How do you remove the knobs from a nexgrill 720-0011

It is nice to know the size of all the nuts bolts and hex screw connectors. Sometimes the manual helps here most of the time not. You simple take the inch and mm hex wrenches out and start plugging them in until one fits nice a snug.
Turn Left to loosen. Right to tighten.
It's really not that hard to do.
Good luck!

Cant remove stand from LC46SB54U - dont see 2 prongs going into back of TV...this is what my model looks like.

Look at page 7 Quick reference section
for similar model here:

If the mounting mechanism is similar you will need a hex key and loosen 2 pairs of screws on the back near the bottom. The stand should then slide out from the bottom edge.

What size hex key do i use to remove the 3 screws that hold the air filter on (2002 roadking fuel injected)

Unless they've changes something, they take a 3/16" hex key. They are standard size, not metric. If you're talking about the ones that hold the outer cover on, they are larger, 1/4 inch or larger.

Good Luck

Remove base to wall mount

Place the TV face down on cushioning. There are four short hex head screws that hold the TV to the stand. There are two on each side of the mounting point (close to the bottom of the TV). (Turn counter-clockwise to loosen.) Next slide the base down from the bottom of the TV. The appropriate sized hex key was supplied with the TV (and the base was installed). If you want to, you can unscrew the support post from the base - it has 4 long hex head screws. This will let you put the base parts into an appropriate container for storage.

For a clear picture, see the manual for installing the base and work the steps in reverse. See here for a copy of the manual: .

To put on the wall mount, you will need to remove the covers from the 4 mounting locations on the back of the TV and use the screws from the wall mount bracket kit.

I hope this helps.

you will need to remove the jack pack cover on the back of the unit (plastic cover), it should pop off, then remove the screws holding the stand on (should be 5 if memory serves).. after that the stand should slide away from the tv.

make sure your wall bracket kit can support the weight and that the screws you embed in the wall are using hercules hooks, anchor bolts, or something similar... last thing you want is a dead tv and ripped up drywall.

hope this helps,
