Go ahead and laugh.... Does anyone know how to release this little screw driver bit from the chuck? Pulling the chuck out to release doesn't work and I can't grab it with pliers. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. ...yes I know...I should have used a bit extender.

Yeah, you're going to have to pull the black knurled collar forward to release the ball detent holding the bit into the impact driver.

Were it me, I'd look for a powerful magnet to touch the bit to while I pull the collar forward.

  • Well I'll be damned....in all my mucking around I seem to have pushed the bit in beyond the sticking point. Jun 24, 2015 at 20:32
