2005 National Hardware Show New Tool News Favorite:
The Extractor
Extracting Pliers

We were very impressed with this sturdy and effective new tool. It's great at cleanly removing nails, staples, tacks, fasteners (even rusty or damaged ones), pneumatic fasteners, and smooth or headless pins and nails. It's perfect for any remodeling, demolition, and electrical professional or do-it-yourself'er.

It has parallel jaws with serrated teeth that evenly distribute force on the entire exposed length of the fastener, which prevents bending and shearing. It has a curved heel which allows the tool to rock back and pull out the fastener with minimal damage to the surface. The black phosphate-coated handles resist corrosion and long handles provide excellent leverage.

We found it very easy to use... the jaws are auto-locking and will even grip a fastener on a vertical surface once the handles are released.

The Extractor is now available for $22.50
