Get a torx bit, either 10 0r 15 & slowly undo screws about one third. There should be 4 of them. When screws are loose they will take pressure off selector & you should be able to free it up.

    The 4 screws are at the front of the drill if you look straight down it, where chuck meets body.

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

My black and decker 12v drill is 'locked". The area where you put the drill bits in won't loosen or tighten so it won't hold any bits. I have tried to manually loosen or tighten it too but nothing...


Try shooting some WD-40 lubricant into the 'chuck' and let it sit for awhile, then rotate the outer part of the chuck CCW to loosen the 'jaws'. If the chuck is a keyless type, just hold the chuck and turn the reversing switch to 'reverse', then gently apply power to the trigger--that should open the chuck jaws. You will likely find that a leather glove on the hand holding the chuck will help prevent a burned hand if you lose your grip. If it is a keyed--type chuck (there will be ring of gear teeth on the front edge of the chuck), then a key with a small gear near one end is required to turn the chuck open (turn the key CCW). Hope this helps!

How do I change the keyless chuck on a cordless drill/


Remove the REVERSE-THREAD screw at the bottom of the chuck. Set the clutch collar to the highest setting, and set the gear to the slowest setting if this drill has a 2 speed transmission. Remove the battery! I have performed this with the battery in back in my noob days, and getting an allen wrench in your rib because you accidently hit the trigger will only happen once. You will never forget that experience. Get the biggest allen wrench you can fit in the end of the chuck(the shortest leg) and tighten the chuck down around it, allowing the jaws to rest and tighten on the flats of the wrench. Lay the drill on its side(chuck toward you, handle to the left, and allen wrench to the left, horizontal to the deck. Then with a hammer(soft hammer if you care about the allen wrench) quickly and deliberately hit the allen wrench in an attempt to cause the allen wrench to spin counter clockwise. You have only a few to several attempts at this before you risk damaging the clutch, so make the first one count. Follow through like you are attempting to hit something 6" below the allen wrench. If this does not do the trick before you shell the clutch/gearbox, you are looking at an expensive undertaking, most likely a new drill. I have only shelled 2 clutches out of literally tens of thousands of chuck repairs, so don't worry, just be aware. Let me know how it goes!

I have the same drill and love it !! This series of Craftsman Drills are the first of the keyless chuck. To tighten or loosen the bit, simply pull back on the black ring tightly and hold it and simultaneously pull trigger to run drill foreward (to tighten bit). Reverse (to loosen bit). The chuck will make a loud clicking sound!! This is normal !

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 change the chuck on a 5 amp skil drill. It is keyless.


If it's anything like their other drills, there is a safety screw with left-hand threads inside chuck.

  1. Turn it clockwise until loose.
  2. Then insert the short arm of a 3/8" hex wrench and tighten.
  3. Strike long arm of wrench sharply counter-clockwise and chuck should loosen to unthread from spindle.

Can't get the keyless chuck off cordless Makita 6095D drill.


If this is a newer tool it is probably a Torx drive screw usually a T20. The screw is LH thread and after removing it you will need to put some screws back in tool to remove the chuck. First shift the gear selector to the low setting and the clutch to the drill only. Next get a bent handle allen wrench about the capacity of the chuck install the short end of wrench in chuck and tighten. Put the chuck on a block or wood or a workbench to support is and turn the wrench to about a 30 degree angle in the counterclockwise position. The chuck has standard threads so you want to hit the wrench with a hammer to loosen it. This might take a few tries but it will work. Good luck
