Chuck on Drill not moving

I just purchased a Ryobi cordless drill, and am having problem with the keyless chuck. Basically, when I try to unlock the chuck it is stuck and won't move, and it won't turn in the other direction either. As it is plastic, I don't want to use to much force in case I break it. What can I do?

    I just purchased the Ryobi 18v drill and I cannot loosen the chick either. I guess I'll go to Home Depot tomorrow and ask for help.

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.

I had the exact same problem with a ryobi 18v hammer drill. I and three other guys tried unlocking the keyless chuck. none of us had any luck after a good ten minutes of trying. I went home, put on a pair of leather "WORKER" gloves. NOT the nice expensive ones my girlfriend bought me!
I held a strong firm grip on the collar and with the other hand I did the same on the chuck. Gave it a strong twist and on my first attempt it unlocked :D

It's surprising what a difference a pair of gloves can do.
Also if anyone else has a similar problem, try and use suede leather gloves. They have alot more grip than plain flush leather.

Hope I have been off help.

12 volt black and decker keyless chuck will not close. Model CD120G


Try giving the inside a spray with WD40 then try closing the chuck. Check that there is not a left handed screw in the center of the chuck that has become partialy unscrewed. The chuck can jam open and just need a strong gril to release it. If the outer sleve of the chuck is turning but nothiing happens then you will need to get the chuck replaced.

I'm new to home improvement, and just bought my first cordless drill (Ryobi P204, 18-volt, 1/2"). How the heck do I insert the bit? The drill comes with two batteries, and a charger. There is an opening...


Like many drills these days, the P 204 has keyless chuck. In order to secure a bit, locate the forward/reverse switch (right above the trigger). Set it to the center of the three positions. This will lock the drill so that it cannot turn. Now turn the black portion at the front of the drill's nose (looking at the drill from the front, clockwise rotation will tighten the chuck and counterclockwise will loosen it) Adjust the chuck jaws so the bit you have chosen will fit without too much slop and then tighten the chuck until it holds the bit snugly and straight. Unlock the forward/reverse switch (push to the right to drill or insert screws) and you should be ready to go!

I have a Black & Decker 18V cordless drill with keyless chuck. The spot where the drill bit fits is in the open position stuck and won't turn in either position. What am I missing how to unlock it?


Look at the three jaws in the chuck,if on is further out than the others the you need to tap ti back into place with a small punch and a hammer.If this does not work then you need to replace the chuck,remove the screw at the bottom of the chuck[where you put the bit],then you will need to to clamp vise grip on the chuck and with it pointed away from you hit the vise grips with a hammer with a sharp blow downward and it should come off.Hope this helps.

I have a Bosch PSR12 12V Cordless drill, but no instructions.


This drill has a keyless chuck. Put your bit in the chuck and hold the collar of the chuck while pressing the trigger in the forward position. To undo the chuck do this in reverse. You can also hand tighten the keyless chuck if you prefer. I have a 1/4' adapter that I keep in my drill so I can change bits quickly.
