1. Turn the screw clockwise to take it out.
2. Then you needs 3/8 allen key & insert the short side of the allen key & tighten the chuck.
3. hold the drill at the edge of the table & wack the allen key
counter clockwise & do it again as needed.
4. dewalt keyless chuck will fit but you might add a washer to insure the chuck is not rubbing the clutch collar.
5. putting it back together the other way.

SOURCE: drill chuck removal
The screw should be left hand thread and the chuck is normal thread. The 'workshop' way to remove the chuck is to remove the screw (done). If the jaws are still working then clamp a sturdy allen key in it and whack it against a workbench to unscrew the chuck. If holding the drill in the normal position you would stand with the workbench to your left and whack it down on that. If the jaws aren't working then you can grip the body in a vice and use large pipe grips or stiltsons on the chuck. Also check to see if the chuck spindle will accept a thin spanner to hold it, as this is a slightly more caring way to brace the spindle. Then you can can hold the spanner in the vice and use the allen key in the chuck and unscrew it that way.

Try using the low torque setting on the drill when reversing and something to assist you getting a better grip to hold the chuck from spinning when reversing. This may help.

Inside the chuck is a left-handed screw. torx (star) T20. When you get it out, take an allen wrench and (if you can tighten it up at all, tighten the **** out of it). If not, find an allen wrench, a tiny bit smaller than the space allowed. Now, get a nice big hammer. The chuck is right handed thread. And knock it, spinning the chuck off the spindle. May take a few whacks. Use the edge of a workbench to keep it stationery if need be. Please rate me

With the lock screw removed (it's a reverse threaded screw) you can procede with getting the chuck off the drive shaft.
OK, you need to put a 1/4" or larger hex key wrench into the chuck and tighten it in place with the chuck key. Put the short end into the chuck.
Once you've done that, place the drill chuck, only the smooth part, not the part with the teeth, on the edge of a solid workbench. Now hold the chuck with the hex key (long end) at a 30 degree angle off the bench top and strike the hex key with a hammer going counterclockwise (looking at the front of the tool) to loosen the right hand threads that hold the chuck to the shaft (spindle). You should now be able to easily remove the chuck by hand at this point.
Here's link to a manual for your Hole Hawg that will also show a nice illustration of the removal method, to make it a bit easier, as well as giving you other good info about your drill. Print a copy for your files and future reference.
That should do it! Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
