Well, there's not much to be said about a powder coated, tempered steel prybar that hasn't been said already. However, I purchased this for one purpose and one purpose only: Pulling up tack strips from an old carpet installation to clean up hardwood flooring underneath. As you may already know, tack strips are the work of the devil, but this tool changed the process of removing them from hell on earth to mildly annoying, and all without damage to the floors when used properly.
I was not gentle with it either; frankly, I beat the snot out of it. AND IT WORKED. The powder coated finish is barely what it was when new, but never once did it bend, chip, or snap. I could use it for even more tasks, and it would probably be none the worse for the wear.
It's not often I sing the praises of a cheap, Chinese made tool, but this pry bar was the best $5 I ever spent and it paid for itself many, many times over. Five stars, easy.
Perfect for trim and cabinetry work, the mini TEKTON 7-1/2 in. Utility Pry Bar is a versatile, all-purpose prying and nail-pulling workhorse. Small and lightweight, it is easy to handle in tight spaces. Its sharp, thin chisel ends slip effortlessly behind pieces of trim and molding, working them loose without damaging wall or cabinet surfaces. Nail slots at each end and in the middle let you get at nails from multiple positions or angles. They slide under and grip the small heads of finishing nails and brads, even those from air nailers, giving you the leverage to pull them cleanly. Made from high-strength forged and heat-treated steel, this little guy will quickly become one of your favorite tools in the box.
