Default Problem removing plates

I have some Suregrip Rebels with the avenger plates I picked up for the plates. A couple of the bolts are just turning in the shoe. A couple more I got off by just getting something between the plate and the boot to give it a little pressure but its not working on these.

At the moment I have some penetrating oil on them then will try later.

Next step will probably be the Dremel. These boots are rather flexible so looks like there is room to cut the bolt and not touch the plate.

Any one have any other ideas?

A vise-grip may be used to hold the bolt still when the nut is being unfasten. If there is any damage on the bolt thread, it should be at the very end where the bolt was broken. With the bolt held still, you should only need a little force to past the nut through.

There was not really anything protruding either past the nut or on the inside of the boot to get vice grips on. But when I got home after letting the penetrating oil soak for a few hours the problem ones came off.

I am glad you manages to get them removed. You mentioned there may be enough room to use a Dremel to cut the bolt and not touch the plate which suggested to me there may be enough free length on the bolt to push back into the boot.

Well it would have been really really tight and probably have cut the boot a bit. Glad I did not have to try

If you tighten the nut back up pretty tight, then file down the protruding bolt, the damaged part will be removed and it will come off really easily

They didnt seem to be damaged after they turned one time they came off fine past all of the outer most threads. It was just getting them started moving at all that was the problem.

probably going to need a small die grinder then. Just cut down the nut until it is gone with out damaging the plate. Tedious process but a lot of people have to do it that way.
