Jack up Your Toolbox

It's time to give the back of your hammer a rest. There's a better way to extract old nails and brads -- and it doesn't involve pulling, twisting, groaning and pleading for a nail to come out smoothly, without damaging your woodwork. The Nail Hunter from Nail Jack Tools is designed specifically to dig in, grab onto and extract a whole range of fasteners including brads, nails and staples. It's low tech, but high precision. It has a pliers-like design with teeth for grabbing the nail shaft and a built-in fulcrum for a smooth pull. There are no batteries or air compressors required. Entrepreneur Michael Foley invented the Nail Hunter after he couldn't find any tools that could cleanly and easily pull nails from lumber, baseboards and molding. Besides speeding up your construction project, the Nail Hunter also helps reduce the amount of salvageable lumber that ends up in landfills because it's filled with nails or damaged during the extraction process. Innovative, green and effective -- Michael hit the nail on the head with Nail Hunter .

    I love it when someone takes something that has been done the same way for decades and says "this can be done better". You are absolutely right, Mike, there is a better way to remove nails and staples and you figured it out! This is the right tool for many jobs for many people.

    Mike, this is brilliant! I don't recall all the 'lever' and 'fulcrum' stuff from high school science class, but you've obviously designed a tool that solves the 'nail / staple' pulling problem that always exists. I had better find one of these under my tree on Father's Day!!

    I meant to add that this is the best tool for removing nails when the head of the nail breaks off. I didn't have anything else in the tool box that would have done the job as seamlessly.

    I love the email I received about this Grommet from my totally handy-woman college roommate: “You know I’m not much of a shopper. But THIS one rocks my boat—I sent it right along to Ray as a suggestion for Christmas, birthday, mothers day, etc….



    Of course I’d add Mother’s Day to the description!”



    She’s right…plenty of sisters are doing it for themselves in the home repair vein.

    one thing your advertisement is missing, something to give me scale. You guys got a 6 inch ruler there?

    @Tom - thank you for that feedback! The Nail Jack Tool is 8.5" long. I hope that helps you visualize its size.

    This looks like a very helpful tool! Must have sold out fast, I just got the email. Is it available at any other retail locations before 12/20?

    Now I look at this marvel of a tool and I think to myself. "They have finally done it and invented a two handled hammer." Whats next.

    @LIGE JOHNSON: Maybe a two handled hammer is next, and you'll be the one whose vision brings it to reality. Thanks for stopping by.
