The patented design allows this nail puller to create a grip that absolutely will not slip or shear. The revolutionary design always keeps the minimum gripping force required to prevent slippage, allowing this tool to have a grip so gentle, it can pull tiny pin-nails and staples, even fabric. When the tool’s jaws sense a micro-amount of slippage occurring, the jaws automatically increase the gripping force. In other words "the tool is always almost ready to slip off the object but will never slip off". This unique ability takes place without squeezing the handles, only requiring the user to keep both jaws touching the object until resistance is encountered, after that The Extractor is as good as welded on, only releasing when the user stops prying. This auto-locking ability is so unyielding, that an extension pipe can be used on the upper handle to create thousands of pounds of lifting force.
With the added benefit of parallel jaws that evenly distribute the gripping force up and down the length of the fastener, again eliminating the chance of slippage or shearing. If it is mechanically possible to remove one object from another The Extractor will do it!
With other auto-locking tools, the grip is accomplished by jamming the opposing jaw against the prying surface. As the extraction continues this force dissipates and the grip will fail. The extractor accomplishes its grip by the rotation of the bottom jaw. This means the auto-grip will not dissipate and fail at any stage of extraction. An object trying to slip out of its grip creates just as much gripping force as the prying action on a surface.
The parallelogram orientation allows the 5.55 to 1 grip ratio to stay equal over the length of the jaw, no matter if it’s close to the pivot or at the tip of the jaw. Even if the jaw length was 8 inches, it would still be 5.55 to 1 grip force at the tip, a valuable property for a nail puller /pliers to have. That is without any prying action, when the extraction/prying starts that ratio skyrockets to the point... you don't need to squeeze the handles.
With other nail extractors, once the nail pulling job is done, they are just another useless tool. Most can't even perform the most basic gripping task. The Extractor was actually developed to be a pair of heavy duty parallel jaw pliers. There aren't many options in parallel jaw pliers, and the ones available are far from heavy duty. The Extractor with its unique levered jaw allows it to grip anything up 7/8 of an inch without any distortion from parallel, no matter how much force is applied, guaranteed! The Extractor will open whole new ways of thinking about pliers and what they can do.
The Extractor's unique orientation allows the tool to lay perfectly flat and the jaws to be perpendicular to a surface. The curved heel's size supplies over 2.5 square inches in surface area giving the tool a large stable footprint. When combined with the parallel jaws you now have a mini bench vise. This is perfect for use on machine tool beds where small parts can be held in a vise-like grip. This protects the user from dangerous cutting blades or excessive heat build-up.
Ways to hold small parts reliably in field locations can be nearly impossible. The Extractor's lay-flat design, parallel jaws and high levered grip ratio allows it to be a mini field vise. Just clamp the jaws and squeeze and the part is held securely locked in the X, Y, and Z plane. The user now has all the benefits of a small precision vise in their hand, an ability not offered by other pliers. For added versatility the Extractor can be placed on a nail or screw embedded into an solid object to hold small parts for more aggressive cutting, drilling, or filing.
