So I was changing the tires on my beadlocks and when I was tightening the screw on the ring my hex wrench snapped in half and the tip is stuck in one of my screws. Does anybody have any suggestions as to removing the tip from the screw??? If not my beadlocks have lost the ability to wear a different set of tires. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Try pulling it out with a pair of pliers.
May need to cut a slot and remove the screw with a flat head screwdriver.

Oh I see. Maybe try super glueing the broken half back on then try and get it out. Just make sure you don't get glue on the screw. I know people do that to get stripped screws out.
Throw the whole mess in the freezer for an hour, then bang the whole thing on the edge of the table to dislodge the piece.
If it broke while you were giving it any torque you may have jammed the two pieces together. Try taking a tiny drill bit and try to snag the broken piece with the drill running in the opposite direction you were torquing the allen wrench. Maybe that can knock it loose.
Or, if you are careful you can drill into the broken piece enough to get a sheetmetal screw or something similar to grab it and pull it out.

If they are button head screw's just dremel out a slot and remove with a flat head screwdriver. This is a regular solution to this problem.
