InventHelp® Client Develops Enhanced Pry Bar (BTM-2316)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp attempts to submit an invention, Hook Bar, to companies for review.

"I was unable to easily remove the old flashing nails that were used before the original asbestos siding and the second layer of siding (vinyl/aluminum) without destroying the siding," said an inventor from Joppa, Md. "I came up with this modified pry bar to get the job done right."

He created a prototype for the Hook Bar to offer an effective way to extract nails in tight spaces. The tool can be used to extract nails horizontally. It is suitable for use when a hammer claw or cat's paw cannot be used. The design allows for pulling motions, as opposed to prying motions, which is more useful in certain situations. The tool easily fits into confined spaces with limited room. Additionally, it can be used behind old siding and under apron metal to remove nails.

The original design was submitted to the Baltimore office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
