1/4" is largest size, might not be big enough.
Hopefully this should work. Do not use the drill bits they provide. You already have a hole in the bolt you're removing.

Dont expect quality from Harbor Freight. It will get the job done, though.

Sears might have better ones. Maybe with straight flutes so you can just hammer it in and then twist counterclockwise.
