3.0 out of 5 stars Like Pulling Nails!, 5 April 2013
This review is from: Hultafors ATLE 600g Nail Puller (DIY & Tools)
This is a well made tool as you would expect from Hultafors. It's smaller than I expected, less than the length of my claw hammer to give you an idea. You position the hooked jaws either side of the nail head and then hammer down so that they penetrate the wood either side of the nail head and can then hook under. It's then a matter of using a claw hammer hooked onto one of the pins at the top to give the required leverage. Unfortunately the top pin is loose so that it falls away for the hammering stage (otherwise it would get damaged) so it is a two hand job to get the hammer claw hooked on. It's OK if you don't mind leaving an indentation either side of the nail hole and if you are planning to re-lay the boards you will need to allow for making good/filling the holes after and decide if that is going to be an acceptable appearance. If you are trying to work with chipboard or a denser flooring material you also need to be aware that it is very hard to hammer the jaws down far enough because of how tough the material is and I actually found it easier to gouge with an old chisel around the nail head to get the jaws under. Therefore this may be a useful tool for softer wood such as old pine boards; for the price you might like to think about getting a kit of pry bars which may cause less damage to the face of the boards. Therefore I am still looking for a killer tool to solve for taking up nailed down flooring be it board or sheet material.
