Screw has sheared off half way

Postby jlc » Mon Jul 18, 2011 9:47 pm


Just been putting up a bathroom mirror. All four holes drilled fine, rawl plugs in fine and three screws in fine, but the last screw broke off as I was screwing it in, leaving half the screw still in the hole.

Any ideas how to get the broken screw out? Was looking at screw extractor kits but I'm not sure about that as it's quite a narrow screw - 3 mm I think - so not sure this would work

Any ideas?

Simply Build It

If the screw is below the wall surface you're probably best moving the mirror slightly and redrilling the holes.
