Craftsman Flex Claw Hammer – The Transformer

prod_1912262012

The homeowner tool segment is full of gimmicky tools that appear to do what 2 or more tools can do in one tool. Craftsman makes a new hammer that fits into this category of tools as its a 2 in 1 hammer that’s a hammer and pull bar all in one.

At first glance it looks like just about any ordinary hammer out there, but what’s hidden under its sleeve is the ability to pivot the claw from the back position and move towards the top of the hammer right over the head to be used as a pull bar. The claw can pivot in several positions along the way and can even move further back and down towards the handle for all sorts of positions when pulling nails.

This particular hammer model has an 18 ounce head and also has a built in magnet and slot to hold nails so you can start nails one handed. No more busted up thumbs and hands!

Let me know what you think of this interesting new claw hammer design. Do you think it’s the coolest thing ever or just another gimmicky tool?

Where is it made? I don’t see the “USA” on it, as with normal Craftsman hammers.
