  1. Install socket on impact wrench and switch wrench valve to the "unscrew" position.
  2. Hold wrench/socket square to lug nut, then turn socket counter-clockwise by hand until it "bites" the lug nut.
  3. Operate the impact wrench until the socket is driven on and the lug nut is removed.
  4. To remove a lug nut that is stuck inside the socket, grind flats on opposite sides of the exposed portion of the nut, then clamp them securely in a vise. Reverse the direction of the impact wrench and operate until the nut is extracted.

ATTENTION: Emergency lug nut sockets are designed to remove OEM cap-style lug nuts. Removal of solid thin-wall nuts holding aftermarket wheel spacers is NOT recommended. Due to the extra rotational load required on wheel spacers, the nuts are usually made of denser metals, making the tool unable to displace material resulting in breakage.

DO NOT USE on lug nuts/bolts with spinning cap/ring.
