Slide the power switch on the drill to the center position to avoid accidentally turning on the drill while removing the bit.
Hold the body of the drill firmly while twisting the collar of the chuck in a counterclockwise direction. Turn the collar a few additional turns once it is loosened.
Pull the drill bit straight out of the chuck.
Things You Will Need
- Bench vise (optional)
- Rag (optional)
- If the collar of the chuck will not turn, place the body of the drill in a bench vise. Place a rag around the drill to protect it from scratches or damage. Tighten the vise just enough to hold the drill in place. Do not over-tighten the vice, or you could crack the drill case. Use both hands to twist the collar on the chuck in a counterclockwise direction.
