Bought three of these because I had several Seville Classics SHE14305 Home Style Mobile 5-Shelf Storage System, Chrome which had to be put together and I thought it would be more efficient for folks to have more tools than to just be standing around waiting to use the rubber mallet. I'm doing some very serious organizing.

There's enough weight to this mallet to give the heft you need yet the rubber cushions the surface you're hitting. Definitely non-marring. I like the covered handle too, in case your dainty little hands might get blisters; good grip. Fits both a woman's and a man's hand.

EDIT - This edit is long overdue, but I haven't had the opportunity to use my mallet much since I received my replacement. So far, everything seems to be much better with the replacement that was sent to me. Kudos to the manufacturer for actually caring about their products and volunteering to send a replacement without any hassle to me at all. I would hope and believe that the first mallet I received was a fluke based on the quick response from the manufacturer. I would have to say that I can now fully recommend this product. Thanks!!!

I used this mallet exactly one time before the rubber head completely detached from the handle. No abuse or anything -- I only used it to tap my wrench to tighten and loosen the bolts on my tires and brakes on my car. The first time I used it, I thought it would be one of my favorite new tools. The second time I used it, which was only a few days later, I nearly damaged my car and the rubber head almost bounced back and hit me. I love Amazon, and I have placed 61 orders for hundreds of items THIS YEAR ALONE, but I cannot leave a positive review for this rubber mallet. It was a good price under $9 (nine) bucks with Prime shipping and it had a couple 5 star reviews when I bought it, but it really is not worth more than whatever you would pay to use it exactly one time.

Tried to use this mallet when dissembling a couple of pallets and it broke while working on the first of the two. It hits hard enough, but the top started spinning around while we were using it. Disappointing.

I bought this to aid in the assembly of a 15 ft trampoline. It worked on all 10 legs, but on the last leg the head came off. Granted, I did pound the pieces together pretty hard, but I thought that's what it's made for. It's still in my tool cabinet, but I haven't used it since.

Works good... bought it because of the steal (not wood) handle. The mallet head did pop off (as other's have complained) after a few days of use setting flagstone. Easily glues back on... not that big of a deal.

This is not like the hard black rubber mallets! This is a soft rubber mallet. It works great for furniture and other items that have a finished surface that you don't want to damage! I used it to put together an all wood bunk bed set and it was a life saver!

I needed a white rubber hammer to install some hardwood flooring in my home. I have a black rubber hammer and it can leave black marks. I read the reviews for this hammer (how complex can a rubber hammer be)? Despite the concerns about the head coming off, I order anyway. I used it successfully for a couple of days and then the head came off. It looks like the head is simply glued on rather than being fastened to the handle. I just put it back on and continued to use it. I may epoxy it back on. Bottom line, it works well and does not mark the item hammered. But, the design still lacks any feature to keep the head on the handle. For the price, it's okay. After I get my floor down, I don't need the hammer anymore so you might say it's expendable. I think they could easily put a fastener through the side of the head into the handle but it looks like they don't care.

Edited a couple of weeks later: I didn't try to epoxy the head on the handle because I didn't think I could get enough epoxy in to form a good joint. Even if I did get some on, I felt that the constant banging would surely cause the joint to fail. So, I just lived with the head sliding off and pushing it back in place. Finally, the head wouldn't stay on very well and I still had about 1/4 of the flooring to lay. I made a truly 5 minute fix by drilling a small hole in the handle below the head and threading a tie-wrap through the hole and around the side of the head. A fastener through the head and handle would have been harder to do and might have scratched my floor when I put the hammer down. All in all, I still think the hammer was a good buy. I didn't find anything similar at my big box hardware store for anywhere near this price.

We got this mallet to help put in our laminate floor in the basement. For the price tag - it was good. It worked for about two days before the head of it came off mid-swing. We had to go out and purchase a more expensive one at a home improvement store. We could have gotten a defective product, but we didn't think it was worth the effort to return it.
