Remove tough nails with this handy puller

Review Summary

Pulling nails with the claw of a hammer proves easy, but what about when you’ve broken off the head or there never was one? Enter The Extractor. This nail-pulling pliers combines long adjustable rubber-coated pliers-type, handles with parallel serrated jaws that tightly grip the nail. We used The Extractor to remove various lengths and grades of headed nails, finish nails, brads, and staples. We really like it for pulling 23-gauge pins, something a hammer cannot do.
It’s also perfect for pulling old cut nails from reclaimed lumber without breaking them off. The Extractor left indentations in pine and even tough white oak, but we prevented that by inserting a scrap of 1/4" hardboard between the board and tool before prying nails free.
