DeWalt Claw Bar 10"
Best nail puller I have used
At 25cm long this isn't really a pry bar, but it is the perfect nail puller. There are three parts to the tool;
(1) nail head digger, on the side - put the ring around a flush nail head, give it a thump, and the wood around the nail head is crushed to allow you to use one of the claws.
(2) short claw - this one is rounded, and digs in very well if you start at a 45 degree angle and give it a couple of blows. Use the length of the bar to lever the nail out.
(3) long claw - this sits at end of the handle, and engages well on exposed nail heads. It will only lift the nail a short distance, but you can hammer the claw back into the side of the nail or flip the tool to draw the rest of the nail out.
I used this tool to pull literally hundreds of nails to lift a floor, and it still shows no real wear apart from hammer marks on the striking surfaces. I can pull a four inch nail, flush, from a joist in less than ten seconds.
The only slight negative is that you really have to be wearing good builders gloves to protect your hands from which ever end of the tool you are gripping.

Good value for money, very robust unlike others on the market that snap on first use!

This bar is another one of dewalts great line of hand tools. It is perfect for getting those hard to reach nails in confined places and offers excellent leverage against those though nails. All in all another great product from the Dewalt hand tools line.
