Everyone makes mistakes, and it sure is great to have just the right tool to fix them! I managed to put an Ikea bookshelf together upside down (grrrrrrrrr), and only discovered this AFTER attaching the backing with 49 small nails. I struggled with my hammer's claw for half an hour and managed to extract 2 nails, and was ready to throw the whole thing into the alley. I did a little searching on the Internet and found the Nail Hunter, which I had overnighted with my Amazon Prime membership. Voila! I had all of the nails pulled out and the shelf put to rights in very short order. I was able to do this without damaging the shelf or the nails. Everyone should have one of these things in their toolbox!

This tool works exceptionally well for what it was designed to do. It works far better than a hammer to remove nails even if the nail head is embedded into the wood.

We like it enough to buy multiple times. Useful for small staples and nails. Not good for large frame nails.

We are redoing a old kitchen into a laundry room. When we were tearing it apart there were staples all over. My husband spent hours removing the staples on such a small area. I looked on the internet thinking there had to be something out there that was used for this kind of work. I watched the video online and ordered the Nail Hunter. Best tool ever, my husband was very happy. He removed all the staples and some nails in such a short time. I would recommend this handy tool to anyone. I am also ordering another one for my son in-law for Christmas.

This tool on my "wish list" and I was delighted when I received it as a gift.

I have used linesman pliers and slip joint pliers for years to pull nails out. In general this is MUCH BETTER!

I will admit when I tried to pull nails out of 40 year old wood they didn't all come out. But I have reached for them many times over the last few months - you will use it more than you think!

I bought this tool to remove some nails embedded in a hardwood floor. I had tried every tool I had in the house, then I went on YouTube and watched a video of this tool in action. I ordered, used it and it is amazing. For some of the nails it took a little extra effort, but it will get the embedded nails out. It left the hardwood floor with no, I mean NO damage. Well worth the money!

There's a TV Ad in the UK for a well known paint manufacturer. "It does exactly what it says on the tin (can)" Well this tool does that and more. Can't fault it for quality or performance....and the delivery estimate of 15- 20 days from backwoods USA to very rural France was in fact brilliant. Ordered Thursday....delivered noon Monday. 5+ stars

This thing doesn't look like much but it is by far the best nail extractor I have ever seen. It's all in the wedge behind the jaws which allows you to pry against the wood surface and the raised handles which don't contact the wood surface when the tool is rotated. A simple but ingenious concept.
