SOURCE: Chuck on Drill not moving

Re: Ryobi P205 special from Home Depot:
Confusing at first, but easy fix:
The chuck is shipped in the UNLOCKED position (and tightly unlocked, too).
I gripped mine w/rubber gloves and turned toward LOCK direction. It freed up with some effort.
But that's the trouble, it is a bit confusing because you would think you need to unlock it, but it's already unlocked.

SOURCE: Can't get the keyless chuck off cordless Makita 6095D drill.

If this is a newer tool it is probably a Torx drive screw usually a T20. The screw is LH thread and after removing it you will need to put some screws back in tool to remove the chuck. First shift the gear selector to the low setting and the clutch to the drill only. Next get a bent handle allen wrench about the capacity of the chuck install the short end of wrench in chuck and tighten. Put the chuck on a block or wood or a workbench to support is and turn the wrench to about a 30 degree angle in the counterclockwise position. The chuck has standard threads so you want to hit the wrench with a hammer to loosen it. This might take a few tries but it will work. Good luck

SOURCE: Using Ryobi Hole Saws

Hello. Somewhere in your set you will find what is called an arbor. The arbor has a drill bit in it and the hole saws get screwed on to the arbor.

Trying to remove a jacobs key less chuck 500 series fitted to a DS18DL Hitachi drill

It twists off counter clock wise. The best way I have found to remove the chuck is to stick a screw driver into the chuck, tighten the chuck, hold the screw driver in some type of vise and run it all full speed in reverse

Non reverse drills often do not have a screw, best way to remove is to lock drill in vice, lock a large right angle driver into chuck and give it a good crack with a hammer in an anti clock wise direction.
