SOURCE: A bit is stuck in my cordless Hitachi DS18DFL

There are always 2 different rings to the chuck grip surface, you always hold the back one and turn the front one counter clockwise.
You should be able to do this by hand.
But if it is really tight for some reason, you could use a channel lock pliers or even a pipe wrench if you had to, but both might leave some marks.

the chuck should be in two sections. hold the bottom section and twist the top section to the left to undo.

It's best not to use the drill power and your hand to try and release. Or tighten for that matter.

Set the drill down, and try using both hands on the clutch.

If that don't work, try using vise-grips or channel locks.

If that don't work, whip out of the WD-40 and let soak and then try again.

I have a Milwaukee M18 cordless drill with a bit broken off inside and the chuck won't open.


Put your drill into reverse, and hold the chuck. With luck, that will loosen the chuck and the broken bit will fall out.

The Drill came with a phillips/screwdriver bit. I don't know how to insert it. I don't know what drill bits to buy and how to insert them either. My model doesn't have a chuck key or side handle.


Most new cordless drills don't have a key. Put the drill in reverse and hold tight to the chuck barrel, pull trigger and the chuck will open. Opposite to close/tighten Best I can do with info provided

I have just purchased a Makita 8391DWPETK 18V Cordless Combi Drill - how do i actually put a drill bit in? Do I need to take off the plastic ring?


The large black part of the chuck should turn left and right to extend (close) and retract (open) the three chuck teeth that hold the bit in place. Turn the chuck to open it far enough to get your bit fully in the chuck then turn it closed to hold the bit in. When the teeth make contact turn the chuck a bit further to get it tight enough that the bit won't slip. When you get used to it, sometimes it's easier to hold the chuck lightly and turn it by lightly squeezing the trigger to turn the chuck with the drill motor.

Black & Decker cordless drill 9.6V chuck will not come off shaft


If it won't close the only other option you have is to break the outer collar and use a chisel to hit on the exposed jaws inside the chuck. I have detailed instructions in the tip section on how to remove a chuck from these drills. Let me know if you need more assistance.

I borrowed a die hard 19.2 volt cordless drill from a friend, but I can't figure out how to change out the bit! Can you help me?! Thanks!


Hi Mary,

Welcome to fixya!

This drill has a keyless chuck. To remove the bit, just turn the chuck to the right (looking from the handle to the front) to open the jaws. To put in another bit, tighten the chuck to the left to close. You have to use both hands. You will see where the ridged portion of the chuck is in two sections. Hold on to the back section with your left hand to keep it from turning while you turn the front section with your right hand.

A lot of the time I just push the button to put the drill in reverse, hold on the front section of the chuck and turn it on. It will loosen by itself. Then when you put the new bit in, put it in forward and hold on to the chuck and press the switch. The bit will be in nice and tight.

Good luck, Mary.

Please place a vote when you accept this solution.
Thanks,
Handie Andie

Drill chuck stok in the thigt possition cant get the bit out ; cant make de chuck to open or close


Sometimes this happens when you have a drill bit that slip. Take a pair of channel lock pliers, and try and turn the chuck counter clockwise. Do it sharply so the drill doesn't turn. IF that still doesn't work put the drill in reverse and try the channel locks again

How to unlock the chuck


this how to get a chuck off a drill.look inside the chuck for a screw. it will be a left handed screw.once you get the screw out put the chuck in a vice . you will need to squeeze it very tight. then put the drill in reverse and pull the trigger.if i wont come off you will need to hit the chuck with a hammer while you are holding the trigger. if you have a bit stuck in the chuck and cant get it out put the chuck in the vice and hit it very hard with a hammer until the chuck falls apart.i work on drills every day ,this is the only way we have found that works
