Hi this should be reletively easy hold the end black bit with the sivler bit holde coming out not the black bit next to the yellow case on drill you hold the black part thats at end of drill by where the bit goes into not the black bit near the trigger hope i explain this ok.
Hold this bit tight then put drill in reverse then press trigger a couple of times it might be tight but shouldnt be that tight it wont undo.
1 put in reverse
2 hold black plastic piece near where drill bit goes into
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

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.

How do I change the bit on my porter-cable 18v drill? Where/how do I line up the black dial with the silver dial to release the bit??


I just looked at some illustrations on ebay of Porter-cable 18 volt drills and they appear to be fairly standard cordless drill/drivers fitted with fairly standard keyless chucks that you get hold of with both hands and twist in opposite directions like you are giving it a Chinese burn. The part of the chuck nearest the bit twists anti-clockwise to loosen.

If you have an SDS drill for heavier duty jobs the chuck is semi-automatic in the drill bit just needs pushing into the chuck and clicks into place but the outer part of the chuck is pulled back in order to release the bit.

How do I load the drill bits in the keyles chuck of my Metabo impact drill Model SBE 561?


Keyless chucks work one of two ways
1: Simply turn the chuck by hand to loosen or tighten drill bit, once it grips the drill bit you will not be able to turn it anymore
2: Some keyless chucks operate by pulling the chuck back towards the body of the drill, placing the drill bit in and then releasing the chuck back to its original position

Drillbit stuck


Can not see what model you have. Is it a keyless chuck or an SDS chuck? With a keyless chuck hold the machine in a vice by the drill bit. now tap the chuck with a hammer or pin punch & hammer. DONOT hit the chuck on the jaws gut on the rim around them. I have had success using this method. If it is an SDS type chuck pull the chuck cap up as far as possible along the bit them if there are any ring springs you will have to try remove them then slide the sleeve up the bit, now you should be able to remove any steel balls. If the bit does not come out now hold bit in vice as before and tap on tool holder.

How do I change screw bits


Put the drill in reverse and hold the chuck (which is the plastic grip behind the bit) and tap the trigger. this will release the bit. If it's not a keyless chuck then you will need a chuck key, which you can get at your local hardware store. Tip: bring the drill with you to the hardware store as there are different sizes of chucks

I can not change the drill bit. Do I need another tool?


that depends on whether or not you have a keyed or keyless chuck. if you have a keyless chuck then you do not need another tool you must turn the chuck counter clockwise to loosen the chuck and replace the bit. if you have a keyed chuck then you will see three holes around the chuck of the drill ie the part that holds the bit. just below the holes you will see teeth spaced evenly around the drill. a chuck key allows you to put the end of the key in one of the holes and using the teeth you turn the chuck key thereby loosening the chuck and allowing you to change the bit. if you have a keyed chuck just take it to your local hardware store and they can provide you with the correct key and show you how to remove the bit. if your chuck is keyless the hold the chuck put the drill in reverse and pull the trigger use a glove to protect your hand

How do I change a bit


This drill uses a keyless chuck. which means you have to hold onto the barrel by the end of the drill chuck. Then you need to put the drill in reverse to open the chuck to put a bit in. Insert a bit and then put the drill back into forward and hold chuck to tighten.

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

How do I ''unlock'' and twist to change a drill bit


hold the drill so the handle is facing you and the drill bit is facing away then twist the chuck clockwise. some quick chucks have two halfs in which case you hold the back collar (nearest you still)
if its really tight it the drill bit into the chuck with something soft like a piece of wood so as not to damage the drill
