Black & Decker manufactures a number of popular electric drill models. Many of these drills are equipped with a keyed chuck from the factory, which can easily be changed out in favour of a keyless chuck. The original chuck on a Black & Decker drill can be removed from the electric drill's driveshaft after removing a screw from inside the jaws of the chuck.

  1. 1

    Disconnect the electric drill from the power outlet.

  2. 2

    Open the jaws of the chuck to the widest point by turning the chuck counterclockwise.

  3. 3

    Insert an Allen wrench into the screw located between the jaws of the chuck, and remove the screw by turning the wrench clockwise.

  4. 4

    Place the drill onto a work table. Insert the key into the keyed chuck. While holding the drill firmly against the table, tap the chuck key with a mallet, turning the chuck counterclockwise. Once the chuck breaks loose from the driveshaft, turn the chuck counterclockwise by hand to remove it.

Tips and warnings

  • Before beginning work on the drill, be sure that the drill is disconnected from the power outlet.
