    Spray the stuck spike with WD-40, getting it all around the spike and onto the threads if you can.

  3. 3

    Use the spike wrench tool to twist off the spike.

  4. 4

    Grip the spike with needle-nose pliers and twist or pull it off if you are unable to remove the spike with the spike wrench tool.
