I attempted this and the clasp mechanism broke. With a bit still in the chuck you can not remove the set screw. This is a common problem that Dewalt denies warranty coverage for. Stop buying their product. They are not backing their warranty.

Keyless Single Sleeve Chuck
Your tool features a keyless chuck with one rotating sleeve for one-handed operation of the
chuck. To insert a drill bit or other accessory, follow these steps.
1. Lock the trigger in the OFF position as previously described.
2. Grasp the black sleeve of the chuck with one hand and use the other hand to secure the
tool. Rotate the sleeve counterclockwise far enough to accept the desired accessory.
3. Insert the accessory about 3/4" (19 mm) into the chuck and tighten securely by rotating the
chuck sleeve clockwise with one hand while holding the tool with the other. Your tool is
equipped with an automatic spindle lock mechanism. This allows you to open and close the
chuck with one hand.

1 put in reverse

3 press trigger few times
4 this should undo it allowing you to put a bit in
make sure its in reverse else you will just tighten it up more let me know if you need further assistance ok

Hello, how do I change the drill bit


There are key and keyless drills and some have a quick connect spring device. To change the unplug then chuck open it all way & insert screwdriver. Most chuck screws are left handed (turn right to loosen) some drills have no screw inside the chuck. Insert a large allen wrench and tighten next hit the allen wrench counter clockwise to remove the drill chuck.

Keyless chuck is stuck open


That can happen if the jaws inside the chuck, usually 3 triangular pieces get jammed together. With chuck facing down tap chuck several times to loosen jaws. If that doesn't work spray a small amount of WD-40 into chuck and try again

Black decker drill keyless chuck won.t open !


hold the back of the chuck with channel locks or a vice and use the same channel locks on the front and open the chuck manually it should work and you can get to the screw to replace it or the hand chuck. this can be a little frustrating but hang in there and you'll be a pro shortly.

Keyless chuck is locked in open position


First thing i would do is look inside the keyless chuck. Use a flashlight if necesary. If the 3 sliders in the chuck are the same ditance from the front then it is just stuck. If they are not then the chuck is jacked and needs to be replaced. If they line up the same then the chuck may have been on a bit of a bind, and then had some contamination in it. Usually rust will happen in here if it is humid where you live. The next thing to do is spray a bit of WD-40 or equivelant into the open chuck. Next thing to do is to put the drill in gear to go forward. Put a leather glove on your left hand to hold the keyless chuck. Set the clutch to maximum. Put the drill in the lowest gear it has and hold the chuck with the gloved hand. Pull the trigger as much as you can hold it as if you were sinching it down on a bit. If it don't break free then give it a sharp whack with a piece of wood from the side. (Don't beat the thing to death. One whack should do.) Try again. When you get it free'd up and you are storing your drill in the future it is always a good idea to leave the keyless chuck opened somewhere between all the way open, and all the way shut.
Presto.
