Taps Questions & Answers

I pressed too hard on the FIX-A-TAP Tap Seats inserts and the rubber o-rings bulged out the sides. How do I remove them?

If you installed the screw in tap seats they can be removed using the hex key to unscrew them. If the installation was of the push in seats they can become jammed in. The best way to get them out is with a large size screw extractor or possibly by using a Dynabolt that goes through the centre of the push in seat. Be sure not to drop the Dynabolt through the tap seat tighten the nut so that the other end grows larger under the seat. Use pliers to pull both the bolt and the tap seat out.
